The Stones Go Ska! -- Phoenix City All-Stars Ready To Release "Skatisfaction"
Phoenix City All-Stars forthcoming album "Skatisfaction" is a Studio One meets Skatalites-style take on the Rolling Stones, including versions of "Satisfaction" featuring Trojan Records legend Freddie Notes, "Under My Thumb," "Play With Fire," "Paint It Black" and "Love In Vain." The band features members of Pama International, Sidewalk Doctors, Intensifed, Dub Vendor All-stars, The Delegators, Big Boss Man/Bongolian, The Loafers, and Kasabian.
"Skatisfaction" follows hot on the heels of "Two Tone Gone Ska," released by the band last fall, which is a collection of mostly instrumental versions of classic 2 Tone tracks including "One Step Beyond", "Stereotype", "Tears of a Clown" and "The Prince," "The Selecter," "I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down," "Ghost Town," and "Too Much Too Young dub."
If you'd like to preorder a limited edition vinyl copy of the album (only 300 copies have been made and their are under 90 left) do so quickly at www.londoninternationalskafestival.co.uk/shop. It looks like they're going to sell out before the official release in Sepetember! It's also available to preorder on CD now.
