30th Anniversary - Toasters (The)

30th Anniversary
Celebrating the USA's longest running Ska band 30th Anniversary release
30 years ago The Toasters ignited a spark on NYC's Lower East Side. A spark that fired the imagination of the US music scene and had global repercussions. They took Ska music, born in Jamaica, championed by the UK's 2-Tone movement, and re-created it in their own image. This unruly group of ruffians synthesized the classic 70’s British sound with east side Punk. The embers of the legacy bequeathed by The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat and Madness were rekindled and the Toasters hit the road. 5000+ gigs later the sparks are still flying and the band is ready to pick up the cudgels once again to celebrate their 30th Anniversary with this 20 track collection of their finest moments.
The distinctive Toasters sound has recently been hallmarked as one of CBGB’s 20 core bands (Clear Channel Radio) along with their personal heroes The Ramones. Billboard, NY Times, Alternative Press, MTV and many others have heaped praise on the band but they are more interested in playing for the fans. To that end the group has undertaken missions across the globe, playing from Siberia to Istanbul and back.
