Ah the lovely Toasters. These guys should get a special ska doggie medal for persevering and spreading ska far and wide during some of the darkest days the music business has ever known. Run as an independent act from the start, every scrap of their success as earned one fan at a time on the road, when often as not, they played to ska-starved fans and puzzled onlookers in a roadhouse a’la The Blues Brothers. Here’s their anthem to one of the finest things in the world – that elusive and magnificent, tangible but invisible, immeasurably valuable stuff, Freedom. Hey that’s a lot of words for a ska doggie! But talk is cheap. And what price freedom? Download and enjoy and go see this band if you get the chance.
UPDATE: This great track is no longer available here! I’m leaving this post up so you’s can goog it! Woof!
