“We used to hang out with Joe strummer, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon. They were energetic onstage, giving it the attitude because in them times you had to [fight] against the system and we were doing the same thing and it kind of blended when we used to do live shows together, so we learned something off them and I’m sure they learned something off us.”

Informative witness of the punk and ska sound/music/ethos(had to look that up to be sure : )

Great article thanks!

Here are some vids someone filmed at The Garage. In photos I saw on Facebook it looks like the venue was packed out.

'Rat Race' performed by Roddy Radiation & The Skabilly Rebels

Ranking Roger and Dave Wakeling are a tough act to follow - they both have great stage presence, look good and sing well. It's true the singer in Beat Goes Bang isn't really in their league but I thought the rest of the band were good.

I thought the second half (and ending) of Nev's track was great.
