This is from our (relatively) new CD, The Swing of Things. Personally I'm not happy with the mastering job, but we got a huge discount, because we've got connections. :)

So enjoy 'I Burn Bridges,' and stay tuned after the song ends for our hidden track from the CD (Swing Thing, the CD's namesake), a special treat for anyone who cares enough to listen to us! It starts around 5:50, so you don't have to listen to such a long period of silence.

Also, our trombone player quit the band, and we're still breaking in the new one, so don't expect our next CD soon. But I'll probably upload more of our 2006/2007 CD in the near future.

Edit: If you want to vote zero, I'd appreciate a review letting me know why. We get plenty of good reviews, and that's great, but we want to improve, so don't be afraid to get ugly!

Ska? Not even close

What's with bands thinking they can throw some Trumpets and Trombones and think they're Ska. This is a Pop Punk sound with Wind Instruments and laughable lyrics to boot. Streetlight Manifesto is some real Ska for you kids to learn something from. Don't try that RX Bandits route of trying to break the mold. You'll fail, like them. Ska already has enough problems and this band is adding to it.

Wow, I was going to leave it from then but from 6mins to end that was just nothing but noise. Now i just feel sorry for the lot of you.

Not what I'd call a constructive review, but I'll respond nonetheless.

I'll agree with you, we're not true Ska, and I've made no attempt to hide that. You'll find I'm sure that I've said the same thing many times before. Streetlight, however, is further from true Ska then ourselves. It would seem you've never heard any of the real stuff, so I'd suggest checking out artists like The Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Laurel Aitken, and The Upsetters. If we're pop punk with horns (and truthfully, I don't hear the pop punk part), then Streetlight is regular punk with horns. That's not to say they're not good, and that I don't consider them Ska. We all listen to Streetlight Manifesto, and enjoy their music.

As for breaking the mold, we don't expect to, and don't try to. I don't understand why you would compare us to 'bands that think they're Ska' and pop punk, but in the same review accuse us of unwanted originality? And how is drawing attention to a wonderful genre that is unfortunately almost dead adding to its problems? We don't add any more problems than any other non-professional band. We play for fun, and play what we like.

The bonus at the end, it is a lot of noise. You're right. Pity us.

It sounds to me like someone is a bit of a misinformed hypocrite. Not to label.

Awesome job!

As a musician myself, people and bands like you really inspire me. It's not just the 'ska' style in the music, but especially the fresh melody you've put into it, mixing that with a good amount of singing, that brings us the beautiful sound!

I'd maybe consider a little remaster, as yeah, some parts were kinda... well, strange, but hey, you're not a proffesional commercial band afterall, you're just a band who play for fun, as it should be!

Thanks for making my day with this song ;)


HyruleanHyroe responds:

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

Thanks for the kind words! For sure, we do it all for the fun of it (we couldn't get paid even if that WAS why we played), and inspiring people is a big part of that. Keep listening, and keep skankin'!
