Here's a recent interview we did with Lee Thompson and Darren Fordham. If you share and like the links on facebook, you will get a free download of a live version of "Soon You'll Be Gone" (straight from the soundboard).

And don't forget the second part of your interview.

http://reggae-steady-ska.com/interview-lee-thompson-ska-orchestra/

I say it mainly because I am chuffed to bits that the photograph in front of the fireplace was taken in my apartment in Newcastle. We had a party that started at midnight following the Ska Orchestra's headlining appearance at the 2011 Boss Sounds Reggae Festival.

It has also been used as a photo for an online German Magazine interview they did so absolutely delighted. I think that can of Carlsberg in the background is still there. I quite fancy some cheeky pints tonight so I might just down it in one Smile

Their mini-tour of the UK kicked off last night. Catch 'em live because with 11 musicians including 2 members of Madness, Seamas Beaghen and Kevin Burdett who have played keyboard and guitar with Madness, as well as Louise Vause who has played with Blur's Graham Coxon and, of course, Terry Edwards who has worked with everybody, it's an impressive line up.

Thanks for adding the info about the photo. Sounds like a really good party.
Here's the link to Rockingsteady, which has the story in german and a few more pictures. You can download it here. It's issue # 16:

Hopefully, this will also be out in English some time soon.

And what an amazing party it was with an excellent host Smile

Just incase people don't know there is an official LTSO facebook page which has just announced tickets for the Dublin Castle on the 28th of this month https://www.facebook.com/Leethompsonska

If that isn't a monster hit record then theres something very wrong with the music industry in this country.
