Makers of the documentary Pick It Up! Ska In The 90s recently waged a quite successful Kickstarter campaign. The filmmakers set-out to crowdsource a rather modest $40,000 and (as of early August) have nearly tripled that goal with over $118,000 in funds.
The film chronicles what most have come to regard as the “third-wave” of ska. Bands that fall into this category include Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, No Doubt, Hepcat, and San Diego’s very own Buck-O-Nine. Lead singer Jon Pebsworth was interviewed for the film and appears in the trailer for the documentary.
Happy to announce our first new song & video release since Sustain! The song is called Don’t Be Afraid. It was released as part of the compilation “Punk Rock Halloween – Loud, Fast & Scary” on Cleopatra Records. Check it out!
In January we’ll be doing a run of shows through California, Phoenix & Vegas with Mustard Plug! Fun fact, the first time we played with those guys was in 1996! Found that on their website. We’ve played with them a bunch of times since. Always a good time!!
