The Toasters (NYC Ska) on Thursday 4th May 2023
THE TOASTERS are one of the original American third-wave ska bands. Founded in New York way back in 1981 by Buck.
They’ve released nine studio albums, with labels such as Moon Ska Records, Megalith Records, Celluloid, Stomp Records, Caroline Distribution & Skaloid.
Buck is the only constant member in the band. He moved over to the US to manage the Forbidden Planet comic book store, one year later he formed The Toasters. Their first show was opening for Bad Brains that same year, and later along in ’83 they released their first single Beat Up.
Two more years along and they reach Recriminations, their debut EP, produced by Joe Jackson. This was the point Buck decided to create Moon Ska Records.
Over the following years they expanded with the addition of a brass section, releasing Skaboom! in 1987. Since then, the line-up has seen many new faces (regular contributors included Coolie Ranx, Matt Malles, Brian Sledge, Lester Sterling – followed by a huge etc.), they released a bunch more albums, singles, EP’s & compilations – all available in their Toastography. Their latest releases being One More Bullet (LP), in 2007 for our 25th anniversary & House of Soul (7″) in 2013.
Up to today they’re still touring around the world, filling the dance-floors with ska. While they’re at it they’ve also brought out a couple of hot-sauces & brews.
So come down to the show – check out the supports skank to their tunes, and you might even have some beer-money left over for merch!
