Top Shotta Band ‘Spread Love’, new LP
Trumpeter/engineer/producer Mush1 (formerly of The Slackers & Murphy’s Law, and currently also of Tunnel One Radio [WNYU], Al Paragus HQ / When Dance Was Nice, and Hungry March Band) is back again with what is already being labeled an instant classic, with the 10-piece Brooklyn-based Top Shotta Band featuring Screechy Dan’s second LP, ‘Spread Love’, out now on Liquidator Music. On this LP, Mush1 returns to his musical roots and first love, foundation ska music, with a collection of all original material penned by living icon Screechy Dan and the band.
In these times of uncertainty and rising tensions, Screechy Dan and the crew bring an uplifting, positive message through love songs, and the belief in the underlying good of humanity.
You can check out how staying true to the sound of famed studios such as Studio 1, WIRL, and Treasure Isle, the rhythm section was recorded live all in the same room around 1 microphone to tape, giving the music an intimate and rootsy vibe.
Spread Love also features special guest veterans of the NYC ska scene Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers) and Maddie Ruthless (The Far East). Spread Love is also being supported by a pair of music videos (Spread Love / Cool and Deadly, and What’s On Your Mind), as well as a 7” vinyl single Spread Love / Cool and Deadly).
We hope you enjoy what people are already calling “The greatest LP of foundation ska music ever made outside of 1960’s Jamaica!”.
