This Week In Dallas Music History: The Grown-Ups Start Skankin' Ska Scene
Say what you will about ska music and its many, many revivals since the '60s, but the Denton-based third wave act knew how to write a catchy hook and get huge crowds skankin'.
This article from the July 1, 1993, edition of the Observer, "Too much, too young," was penned just four months after the Denton band's first gig. Gilbert Garcia had just caught the eight-piece ska act at an un-named "Denton beer garden" where he "felt like [he'd] blinked and landed in a London club, circa 1979." Courtesy of the band's songs, of course.
