No Doubt - The Ska EP

Following the success of the Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen bootleg editions of the 'Ska EP' series comes the No Doubt version. The 45 single features covers of 3 live tracks including 'Guns Of Navarone' by The Skatalites, 'Ghost Town' by The Specials and 'Racist Friend' by The Special AKA on one side and out of print Moon Ska studio versions of 'Everything's Wrong' and 'Up Yours' of the flip side. The single is available on line from a variety of sources. There are also versions on Ebay.

While No Doubt have not been a ska band since their early days, during their most recent tour they have been paying respects to their 2-Tone inspirations by performing a blazing cover of The Skatalites classic 'Guns Of Navarone'. The band has a penchant for throwing 2-Tone and ska covers into their live set. In the meantime, below are video versions of songs on the bootleg single as well as a faithful cover of 'Gangsters' by The Specials.


Racist Friend

Guns Of Navarone

Up Yours
