New Ska Song release to Aid Royal Chelsea Hospital

Recommended Posts

from Gary Bushell's web site.

A magnificent day in the studios yesterday, as ‘Buster’s Ska Battalion’ project took tasty shape. The three track ‘Ska For Heroes’ ep will be released in August and all proceeds will be split between charities working for ex-servicemen - the Chelsea Pensioners, the Erksine Hospital and Help For Heroes.

The A side is a World War I medley, arranged by Rob Sigston from The Coverup, with vocals from Jack Kendall and Liberty Hayes. The b-side will feature the Gonads vs The Coverup: Jack and Libs singing the unreleased Gonads song ‘Cheeky Chappy’ (written by Gal and Tony Feedback), which is said to be “like vintage Madness with a twist of bitternessâ€, and Jack and Jennie Bellestar performing a new version of our ‘Long Ska Summer.’

The physical e.p. will come with a bonus track: Resistance 77’s ‘Far Away’ with Libs on vocals. The three Ska songs, engineered by Pat Collier and produced by Gal and Steve Whale, are said to be “98% completeâ€.

Musicians involved include sax-player Joe Green (nephew of the great blues rock genius Peter Green), drummer Dustin Lee Burgess (ex-Argy Bargy) and Jack Kendall (ex Bad Lads’ Army!). The songs in the medley range from ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’ to ‘Rule Britannia’ via ‘Men Of Harlech.’ More details will be released in July =

For info

The Erskine Home is based in Scotland and is a similar institution to the RCH

It is close to the hearts of The Rangers support who have raised £1/4M for it in the last 4 seasons
