- "Peculiar" and "Red
The Slackers roared out of Brooklyn, New York in 1991 and have not quite getting crowds around the world on to their feet since. Their sets are filled with a mix of originals and covers that blend DJ styling and rock with their trademark Ska and Reggae groove.
You can tune-in to one of their club dates from June 16, 2005 at The Clubhouse in Tempe, Arizona (download show from LiveArchive.org - click HERE)
While the LIVE sound is raucous and raw, their studio albums add a little polish to hone the sound that makes them a contender for the best Ska bands around. REDLGHT is a great introduction to the band and PECULIAR also stands out although they have not put out an album that doesn't satisfy.
