ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The newest member of the Megalith Records family! Straight out of Europe, Copenhagen to be exact. Babylove And The Van Dangos are sure to please your rough and tough traditional ska needs, with some flavors of Caribbean dance, 2tone skanks and even some slow'd out dub stylee-ings! One of the things I enjoy most about this band is their working class lyrics and attitude. Ideals we can all relate to, no matter what country you live in. I think too many bands sing about events and life situations that their audience have no connection to, or they just sing about completely lifeless random stuff...it's very refreshing to listen to a band and be able to know where they are coming from.
On top of great lyrics, this band can really work over the ska beat and make your feet move. Bringing to you all the key elements for a full ska band, horns, keys, tight guitar skanks and deep bass rhythms, all brought to light by a voice that will steal your girlfriend if you don't watch out! I have some live recordings of this band playing 20 minute plus songs! You gotta be good to solo that much and keep the crowds interest ;)
Don't be fooled by those imports you may be seeing floating around, the Megalith Records version of this release contains 4 (four) unreleased tracks. One being a classic ska cover, one live and two very well done acoustic ska treats! If you want the full ska package, pick this one up!

Daniel Lewis

One of the best ska bands out there
Really excellent album--this is one of the few ska bands out there with talent all around, including highly trained horn players and rhythm section, also a really great singer and tunes. So check it out. They are touring with the Toasters now but I think they are a lot better than the Toasters. Can't wait for their next album, end of June

Justin Francis


This is easily the best ska album I have heard in the last few years. The rhythm and tempos range from rocksteady to 2tone, but always dance-able. As mentioned, lyrics are distinctly socially conscious when not about summer love ("Shoobidoop"). "Brand New Beat" is a solid rocksteady love song.

In every case, each song pulls you in. The melodies Babylove constructs are innovative and modern. While drawing on clear classical Jamaican influences, these songs are inventive and at the fore-front of the next wave of traditional ska music.

"Big Baboon" and "Shame And Scandal" show lighter sides of the band, with "Big Baboon" also illustrating top-notch musicianship apparent through the recording that sounds as if the Van Dangos were playing acoustically in your living room.

Fantastic
