We Thought You Should Know… Southeast USA Ska!
Yep, there’s even ska in the land of the Grand Ol’ Opry, as Nashville’s Red Raygun Records releases its debut compilation, We Thought You Should Know… Southeast USA Ska! As should be obvious from the name, all 15 bands here are from the Southeast (actually, 4 states are represented, with most of the bands coming from Florida and Tennessee). Along the way, there are great tracks from Regatta 69, Pork Pie Tribe, Skif Dank, King 7 & the Soulsonics, the Del Rays, the Double Deckers, the (now-defunct) Skalidays, and a live tune from a.k.a.: RUDIE. We Thought You Should Know is a solid first effort for Red Raygun, and I’ll be looking forward to seeing where they go from here.
