The Toasters originally released their second album Skaboom back in Oltar - Kiki Lesendrić* - Mesec Na Vratima, on the Celluloid label. Byfive more full-lengths had followed, and it was a sign of their success that the group at this point decided to reissue Skaboomalong with eight bonus tracks.
Four of these tracks comprised the band's Recriminations EP, which actually began life as a demo produced by an old mate of Bucket 's, Joe Jacksonand which was self-released on 12" single in Two years later, the Toasters' debut album Poolshark arrived via the Unicorn label, and four tracks from that set were culled for inclusion here.
That set was brasher, brighter, and more emphatically ska driven than their earlier material, albeit with eclectic backdrops that ranged from the surf-side to the juke joint.
Now boasting a brass section, and two new vocalists, the Toasters' sound was significantly shifting while the lineup continued expanding. By the time they came to record Skaboomthe group had ballooned into an piece aggregate. The resulting high adrenaline album found the band in top form, their playing extremely tight, and the arrangements increasingly intricate and innovative. The Toasters ' signature sound was now in place and instantly recognizable, and while Two Tone based, was blended with myriad other elements that continually shook up the styling in kaleidoscope fashion.
Check out the hip-hop goes dread-jazz "ABC's" to catch this amalgamation at its most stunningly creative. While Poolshark 's title track was itself instantly recycled to great effect.
In fact, the only thing on this reissue is "Beat Up," The Toasters ' debut single it would, however, Over The Rainbow - Parquets - Parquets Popn Music Best on the Thrill Me Up reissue.
It would have been nice to compare it to its new version "East Side Beat," which the band included on Skaboom. New or old, fresh or recut, there isn't a less than highly entertaining number within. Many more changes were to follow, along with a stream of stellar releases, but this is where it all started for the Toasters, and what a grand beginning it was.
