about

The first album from 2012.
Sunny side up, sweet old school ska from Southern France (Perpignan to be precise) packaged in a self released colourful digipak based on the Carlos Malcolm "Ska Mania" classic album. The band were recently described by Fatty Lol from Moon Ska as the "nearest he has heard to the true heart, soul and spirit of The Skatalites". "One For the Founders" catches the band almost effortlessly recapturing some of the best all time classics in the studio, but with a modern twist while still keeping the authentic feel. If you love The Skatalites, The Slackers or Intensified this is a must.
