Miss Upsetter’s Retro Vinyl Review: The Inciters “Doing Fine”
Welcome to another edition of 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 Doing Fine by The Inciters (Elmo):
I think out of all of the Inciters’ work I’ve heard, some of the best of it is on here. My opinion of this band is summed up in three words, “Hit or Miss”. Some songs are absolutely fantastic on this album, others seem like they’re just singing what they’re randomly thinking, like in a bad musical. However, my personal favorites are “Gonna watch my step” as well as “Lay this Burden Down” which are VERY catchy. I’m not too hot on the male singer, he seems to try way too hard. If you’re going to buy any of The Inciters’ stuff, go for this one.
