The Slackers return with
their new album, The Great Rocksteady Swindle, which see's the veterans of the
New York Ska scene return to their Rocksteady roots. The Great Rocksteady Swindle
is The Slackers 12th studio album and is a credit to the bands continuing vitality
and longevity in the music scene. The songs are all well thought out and have
a rhythm that can't be denied. The Slackers are one of those that bands don't
need to change direction to remain fresh and relevant. After 20 years they're
still managing to deliver the goods.
The Great Rocksteady Swindle isn't going to set the world on fire, or even break ska into the mainstream, but it will serve to remind the mainstream that ska, and very good ska at that, is alive and well on the underground!
