The Toasters (USA)

The Toasters mean for America the same as the Specials or the Madness do for Europe: the ska itself. The band celebrating its 25th anniversary last year is one of the most influential ska bands ever. Though the band members completely changed around the founder Rob Hingley during the years who emmigrated to the States from Britain, the Toasters remained a respected cult of the Eart coast til today. Hingley is also the founder of the most influential ska label, the Moon Ska Records. Its successor, the Megalith published the Hungarian PASO’s first studio album. Here their friendship derives from, so everything is given for a huge ska-celebration on this night.
