Big D And The Kids Table

Strictly Rude

Side One Dummy 1328

Released on March 20, 2007

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

"Strictly Rude" is the product of a focused and hardworking band confident in their ability to lead ska's next resurgence. From the catchy opener "Steady Riot", a song reminiscent of "...And Out Come The Wolves"-era Rancid, to the ominous minor-key creepiness of "Snake Bite", to the slower, sunny "Shining On", which wouldn't sound out of place on a Lily Allen record, you get the idea that this might just be the record that ska needs - an album that's as sophisticated as it is pleasing, as adventurous as it is fun. Most importantly, it's a deeply candid album that was shaped by and incalculable amount of effort, energy, thought and love. "Strictly Rude" was produced by Mighty Mighty Bosstones' bassist and fellow Bostonian Joe Gittleman.

what a great album! tere are so many good songs on here, noise complaint is my favourite and the great idea of this is the enxt track 'shining on' follows on the next morning after the party noise complaint is about which has a much mroe mellow feeling. other notbale tracks are deadpan and Steady Riot.

Theres a altered cover, the famous song Strictly Roots is become Strictly rude to fit in with the title of ther album which i a nice touch, a great album through and through!

I love all their previous albums, but I really fell in love with this album in particular. It has a good combination of a lot of different sounding songs. There's more slower tempos than in previous albums, but even if you like a lot of fast music, I think you'll still like it.

'how it goes' and the 'salem girls ep' left me wondering what happened to the 'good luck' era big d i fell in love with..and the brain failure split had big d sounding alot like nofx..but strickly rude, while more mellow raggea beets and great ska than the more frantic skapunk of their earlier days, is still a friggin amazing album. buy it for songs like shining on, try out your voice, the one, raw revolution, hell on earth, and others..just buy it, you will fall in love with ska all over again.

this cd is a piece of gold. it took kinda awhile to get into the whole dub thing but i mean once you get into that this whole album is amazing. at 1st i only liked like half the cd, but now its just about every soong but one, its a good album, and this is just living proof that there are still some bands out there who dont give up, and keep on making music that they've always made. buy this, you will not regret it!

This is definitely something new for Big D, it was very different from most of the songs on How It Goes, but it was just as good if not better.

Great CD. Definitely in my top ten records for 2007. Big D settles down a little for some more Dub feeling ska tunes. Whole album is very re-playable. Has a good flow to the record. If you like the more dub(y) feel of this Big D record check out the Easy Star All Stars or Culver City Dub Collective.

Awesome record!!! probably one of the best ska records in the past few years. Big D had matured so much since "Good Luck". They have really set themselves apart from the cliche cookie-cutter mold of 3rd wave ska.

now some will complain this is not like their previous records but with a title like "Strictly Rude" what do you expect? they have moved on from the struggles of "How It Goes" and embraced the good times with friends. Songs like "Snakebite" and "She Knows Her Way" have shown how far they have come.

a near perfect album. I could never get into "Deadpan" and "Noise Complaint" gets old quick but other than that "Strictly Rude" is a real treat.

best songs are "Steady Riot", "Souped Up-Vinyl" and "The One". Don't pass up, you won't regret!

I was a little worried Big D wouldn't be able to top How it Goes (which i think is amazing). This has more of a relaxed reggae vibe. My favourite songs are 'steady riot' and 'strictly rude'. This is a great cd and years from now i can see it still making its way into my cd player.

Awesome ska album. They have definately grown since How It Goes, but in a great way. I'm sure you have heard the hype now you just need to exprience it for yourself. Plus, they have a kick-ass live show so make sure you check out one of those out too.

I've seen this band live over 20 times, and they are amazing.

Strictly Rude shows the natural progression of a true ska band at heart.

Their albums "Good Luck" and "The Gipsy Hill EP" showcase a harder more punk/ska sound, "How It Goes" has some of that, but also the slower more ska side of the band.

Strictly Rude shows the bands all out ska sound (with a little of that punk flair). A great album for the true ska fan. Big D fans will of course love it to. Don't look for songs on this album like "Checklist" or "Five Kids Down" though. This is a more true to ska record with catchy songs and spectacular lyrics.
