Top Albums From 2013 – Would You Like To Have Them?


Thanks a ton to all labels and bands that keep sending us their new music throughout every year. We couldn’t stay informed on what’s going on in the United Nations of Ska without you.

Yet, we don’t want to keep the album releases to ourselves. Like in 2012, we like to clear our shelves and give away what we received – wrapped up in one fine package –  to one lucky subscriber to our email list. That’s our way of saying thanks to our most devoted readers.
To make matters even better: Some of the albums we give away were signed by the artists

1. Dave Hillyard for example signed a copy of his album “California”, when we met him at the Slackers show in Cologne in November 2013 (see the foto above).

2. Red Soul Community signed a copy of their album “I Never Learn” after their show in Essen at the Soul Hell Cafe.

3. Oliver Stephan (German Ska legend, Ex-The Nighthawks) sent us a copy of the album “Rhythm Fever” by his current band The Stimulators.

One love.
