Keeping Ska Dead

(I Voted For Kodos)

Half Cab 5

Released on September 26, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Formed in 2000, the Venkmans are a tight knit group of friends playing punk ska. Having released a handful of EPs over the years, and playing a bunch of shows, the Venkmans have made a name for themselves for 2 generations of fans. So here they are now, 6 years and many beers later finally releasing a long overdue full length. Features an acoustic rendition of the Venkmans classic "30 Miles South" done by I Voted For Kodos' own frontman Rick, as well as the Venkmans rendition of the Cars classic "Just What I Needed"!

This album is kind of weak. It has mediocre horns and isn't good ska or punk. They had some songs that almost sounded screamo.

this band would probably kick ass live. poppy pop punk with horns behind it. these guys probably would have been on mtv if this was released in 1999. ummm..... like i said probably good live, generic and nothing new on cd. the accoustic protest song is very forced and lame to be quite honest but it probably got the singer laid so i guess its worth it...... the best song is the song making fun of metal heads!!!!! o yeah its like 7 bucks and the singer says thank you on yer order form which is pretty cool.

A bit of a rough of a recording but straight up ass kicking Ska none the less. I got this when it was 5 bucks havent listened to it in a while, guess I havent been in much of a Ska mood lately, If your looking for something new or a replacement for New Catch 22 this is it.

I wasnt too impressed with this one. When they get into thier fast paced ska its pretty good, but they also do some weird keyboard, ultra poppy stuff. And after a while his voice gets a little annoying cuz it sounds like he plugs his nose while he sings. not for punk fans.

I bought this mostly for its $5 (in December) price, and expected it to be predictable and forgettable. The only other ska CD I'd owned was the Mighty Mighty Bosstones' "Let's Face It" and I didn't care much for any tracks besides "Impression That I Get"; I traded it in for store credit about 2 years ago.

Boy, was I surprised with this CD! I was hooked at Track 1: this CD as a whole is fast, catchy, edgy and fun (sorry about my lacking in ska terminology.) I actually care about ska now, and this is worth way more than $7.25.
