The Eccos Bio:
Ska-punk is like sex: it’s only dirty if it’s done right. Shows by THE ECCOS tend to get real dirty! Massive offbeat orgies and powerful punk-rock parts combine with trumpets on fucking fire. If you don’t feel the urge to dance to this, you’re probably into country.
Mindless swinging and swaying is a definite no-go with THE ECCOS. Ska mustn’t be reduced to sunshine reggae. Instead, the band wants to encourage their audience to think and act independently: Miguel Guinness’ Mexican vocal power meets provocative lyrics made in Austria.
Without doubt, it proves a difficult task to conserve THE ECCOS’ raw energy on a record. "Know the Ropes", however, stands up to the challenge, providing top-notch ska-punk with a political message.
