The 3rd Wave SKA Preservation Society releasing classic ska albums on vinyl

The 3rd Wave SKA Preservation Society is cooking up some old-school Ska on the platter. This is a joint project between Connecticut based Asbestos Records & Chicago based Underground Communique Records. The two label owners, Matt Flood and Justin Schwier, have a love of ska music and vinyl and want to spread it around. Here is a statement from the Society:

“A few years ago it dawned on us that there was a ton of great records we loved as teenagers, that were long out of print on CD, never made it to iTunes, and were never available on vinyl. We slowly started contacting our old friends in these bands, asking for their blessing to reissue them, knowing full well that releasing a dead genre on a dead format was a horrible business model, but these albums are just too good, and too important to their fans to be left to obscurity. A few years ago we started our little project separately, before joining forces to bring these records back from the brink of obscurity and began reissuing classic 90’s & 00’s albums…”

The lineup being reissued are from the bands The Pietasters, Pilfers, Edna’s Goldfish, and Suburban Legends. You can check out more information on this project and the albums being released in April at their Kickstarter page. Long live Ska!
