Review - THE ska flames: ska fever
By Dell (Backdoor Promotions England).

During the late eighties, Japan was experiencing a ska boom, and a host of acts emerged from the nation. With Gaz Mayall often appearing on TV and performing live in Japan, it gave him the time to check out the bands that were emerging underneath the Rising Sun.

One of the best Japanese ska acts are The Ska Flames, whose authentic thunderous ska is quite delightful. Gaz wasted no time, & asked the band to record an album for Gaz's Rockin Records.

Ska Fever was released in 1988, & it became one of the must have ska releases of that particular time. The UK dancehalls & ska discos were all rocking to the Ska Flames that year, and the album was voted as ' Best of 1988 ' in some global fanzines. That does not surprise me. Hot Jamaican ska from Japan !!

SKA FLAMES: SKA FEVER

Every one a scorcher!! Twelve hot exciting new trax by the world famous Ska Flames. Undoubtedly the hottest new authentic ska band on the scene thrilling packed dance halls in Japan since they formed 3 years ago.

This is the Ska Flames first album and was recorded in London during their first UK visit last summer when they stole the people hearts at the Notting Hill Carnival and Gaz's Rockin' Blues (home of the new British Ska Scene).

With this wild selection of wicked tunes I'm sure the Ska Flames will set the world on fire with infectious soulful ska beat.
