Two Tone Gone Ska - Phoenix City All-Stars

Two Tone Gone Ska
2 Tone Records debt to 1960's Jamaican music is vast. Without the likes of Toots & The Maytals, Prince Buster and The Pioneers, 2 Tone's stars The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat and The Bodysnatchers would not only be void of a huge part of their sets, but the genre that checkered the national would be an all-together different affair.

With this in mind Phoenix City All-Stars present a truly unique celebration of one of Britain's most iconic labels. Taking some of 2 Tone's greatest songs and replanting in 1960's Jamaica, the resulting tracks are truly authentic sounding Blazing 60's ska, akin to The Skatalites, rocksteady and early reggae. Wonderfully inspired interpretations, performed by an all-star band plus legendary guest vocalists Dave Barker (the voice of Dave & Ansell Collins) and AJ Franklin (The Federals and The Chosen Few).

Press:

"Anyone who covers 'Ghost Town' has to be brave but Flowerdew knows and loves this genre so well that there are few better qualified." - Andy Peart, Vive Le Rock, Nov/Dec 2012.

"...prepare for a nostalgia fest as the very capable Phoenix City All-stars revisit songs like One Step Beyond, The Prince and Tears Of A Clown." - John Masouri, Echoes

Prince Buster Shakedown
The Dualers truly are a self-made success story.  From busking the streets of London to selling out the capital's prestigious O2 Indigo theatre 4 times they have single-handedly taken their highly-stylised mix of authentic ska & reggae to the masses.  Propelled by their 'rain or shine' work ethic and an ever-burgeoning fan base they have entered the UK singles charts 3 times and sold over 35,000 self-released albums. All this and The Dualers are still one of the UK's best kept secrets.             

Cherry Red Records new Ska imprint Phoenix City now proudly presents The Dualers third studio album - 'Prince Buster Shakedown', a tribute to the undisputed King of Ska, Prince Buster. Lead singer of The Dualers, Tyber Craunston discovered the sounds of Buster through his Dad, Bill, who throughout the 60's helped introduce ska music to the capital with his Savoy Sound System.  From before he could walk Tyber was swaying to the sounds of Prince Buster, making this selection a  highly personal one that jumps and grooves between booming 60s ska and soulful rocksteady.             Produced by Pama Intl's & Phoenix City's curator Sean Flowerdew the album see's it's launch at The Dualers headline performance of 2012's London Intl Ska Festival on 5th May 2012 at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
