Sorry but I think that's dreadful. I know it's "Lip Up Fatty" but the likes of this just feeds in to the view that 'ska' is comedy music to many out there. Just look at that cartoon backdrop...I couldn't look at it beyond 30 seconds


I agree with you - but the public mostly will always pick up on the most easy to grasp or cliched parts of anything. If they're not really avid fans then they aren't going to know the difference.

Saying that, ska always had its comedy side, both the original Jamaican stuff and the British version. The humour and fun helped get the serious messages over - I think that gets overshadowed because people now focus on Ghost Town above everything else.

Has anyone seen the recent clip of Nev and Buster singing, Monkey Man?
It's really good.

I have seen photos of Neville and Buster on Facebook at Skamouth but not heard the version of Monkey Man yet Smile
