At that point member “Richie The Professor” launched a successful solo career under the new moniker DR RING DING – and the rest is history! EL BOSSO reformed in 2003 due to popular demand, and this is their second album since that reunion! Always playing fun revival third wave ska, always singing in German – the band once again includes founding members DR RING DING, EL BOSSO, and SKACUS! Vinyl released on GROVER’s VOR imprint!

The long wait is finally over! The third full length from this amazing Italian 2-TONE meets streetpunk ska band!
Their last album “ACTION REACTION” was one of our best sellers of the past year, full of feel good anthems for the mod/scooter jet set! This 13 track album was such an instant hit, the energy of 2-TONE legends THE SPECIALS mixed with classic punk like THE CLASH or THE REDSKINS. Modern bands like THE SKOIDATS and THE PIETASTERS also come to mind – this album is modern, fast-paced, and extremely catchy! Ska, punk, reggae, and 80s rock-a-billy all mixed into one killer album.
