ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This band came out of the creation of Ryan Scroggins (keyboardist for Los Skarnales) and Beans (drummer for Los Skarnales), originally just a side project musical outlet, but once the band Los Skarnales officially parted with the current line-up, Ryan took the band full on to cover some already booked Los Skarnales shows and tours. With more than enthusiastic responses from the 3 Floors Of Ska LA show and other gigs along the way, the band has gone full time on this effort, and thank you for that!.

Do not expect anything here like Los Skarnales, where as there are no Hispanic elements to be heard, this is all new style and sound from the band out of Houston, TX. The energy level is still there as is the musicianship, but the sound is very different and very fresh. After listening to the test press in it's entirety, I felt like I just walked out of a cold dark foggy New Orleans bar, where some crazy mixture of traditional Jamaican ska, a Sergio Leone soundtrack and a bottle of whiskey were all thrown together into one incredible score to my nightly trip to the club.

The album contains atmosphere, which a lot of records these days don't. Most albums seem to be a string of individual songs that have nothing in common with the following or preceding tune. Although the album was done rather quickly, a lot of thought was put into the "feel" of the record. I think this record is going to please any fan of the current "rocksteady" revival trend that seems to be sweeping the ska scene. The more gritty ska sound, a bit more rough and tough. It's hot in Houston, and so is this record!
