THE TOASTERS(US)

THE TOASTERS: DET AMERIKANSKE 2-TONE BAND!

Netop som de har passeret deres 35. leveår træder THE TOASTERS på speederen i stedet for på bremsen.

Deres globale turnéer fortsætter – og senere på året udsender de deres næste album ”Life Is A Party” på Rarebreed Records, som drives af Vinnie Fiorelle (Less Than Jake) og Obi Fernandez (Westbound Train).

Dannet i NYC (Lower East Side) tilbage i 1981 er det uden sammenligning det længstlevende amerikanske ska-band. De dannede bro mellem UKs 2-Tone ska og den amerikanske ska-eksplosion i 1990’erne, som de fortjent er krediteret for at have startet.

Tallene nedenfor taler for sig selv – og nu vender de atter tilbage til Danmark og denne gang på Loppen!

 

•                          5000+ live shows

•                          CBGB'S core top 20 artist

•                          Mojo Magazine ranked #4 SKA band of all time

•                          Bandsintown #5 hardest working band 2014

 

In my opinion, The Toasters are to ska in America the 1980s and beyond what The Specials were to ska in the U.K. in the late '70s and early '80s, and what the Skatalites were to ska in Jamaica in the 1960s. The Toasters were innovators, creators, shapers of the music, evolving it in a fresh direction, blending it with the cultural influences in a very American manner, and I mean that in a completely complimentary way. Just as Byron Lee & the Dragonaires brought professionalism and polish to ska, allowing others to benefit from the fruits of their labor, so too did the Toasters' music allow numerous other bands to share in the spotlight of skill and success, many of whom have gone on to great heights. Upon the shoulders of giants. Oh, yeah, and they kick ass!
