Edinburgh 10-man ska juggernaut Bombskare launch their long awaited album, 'A Fistful Of Dynamite'. Support from the who's who of Scottish ska: Big Hand, The Amphetameanies and Root System, plus DJs till 3am. Tickets available now from Ripping Records (Edinburgh) or Tickets Scotland (Edinburgh/Glasgow).
Introducing BOMBSKARE, Scotland’s 9-man ska juggernaut, who have been tearing up stages the length and breadth of the British Isles. Reaching zero to sixty skanking miles an hour in the space of three chords they are tighter than Fort Knox.
Live, the band deliver in spades; wave upon wave of ska has fans, skinheads and pork pie hat wearers alike ablaze in dancing rapture. Their trademark, breakneck ska rhythms and lush, three-part harmonies work together with choppy guitar sounds and an explosive horn section to truly blow the audience away. .
BOMBSKARE are the Fat Man and Little Boy of Scottish Ska. Bigger, better, louder, tighter, harder and faster than the competition - they leave every stage like Tokyo following a visit from Godzilla. Firmly established as one of the top live draws in the country, the band's expertise and sense of fun has made every performance - from Shetland to London - truly special. It’s little wonder they have been crowned "Scotland's premier ska band".
