Miss Upsetter’s Retro Vinyl Review: Skavoovie and the Epitones “Fat Footin”
Welcome to a brand new feature here on MNSKA.com that we are calling Miss Upsetter’s Retro Vinyl Review! Miss Upsetter is originally from Arizona where she was very involved with the ska scene and used to run the now-defunct ska site Get Up Edina! Being the vinyl junkie that she is, she posted many quick-hit reviews of some classic ska and reggae albums on that site. We have unearthed these reviews and will share as many as we can for a somewhat daily review segment.
Today’s review is of the album Fat Footin’ by Skavoovie and the Epitones (Moon):
One of the best releases from moon ska ever! This is one of those albums I bought when it first came out and couldn’t stop listening to. These guys were just kids when this was recorded, but by listening, you would never know! These guys are so talented, this is my favorite album by this enormous band. This is a great mix of swing and ska, with occasional bluesy solos. Great dance album, I would always throw this on when I would DJ and just leave it and people would go nuts for it and would always ask me who it was. This album is like musical prozac. You can’t NOT move while listening to this.
