Default Hepcat


OK they are an old band but nevertheless, they are one of the best pure Ska bands out there from the last 20 years who don't resort to shitty pop guitar riffs and instead, utilise horns and harmonies as the main themes.

This is not earth shattering music but it is music that takes reverence from it's originators and makes you realise that music doesn't always have to wallow in misery and try to impress/be alternative. It can just be joyous and fun. Ladies and Gents: The Hepcats.
