REVIEW - THE TROJANS : Trojans Warriors - best of the trojans
By Dell (Backdoor Promotions England).

Moon Ska Europe were so impressed by the output that The Trojans have had on the International Ska Scene, that in 1998 they decided to release a Best of compilation by the band.

This 18 track cd contains hits including Ringo, Gaelic Ska, Lumpi and Brother Can You Spare A Pound?, and it is a monster collection of all of your favourite tunes by The Trojans, covering their triumphant recording career from Ala Ska to Cool Rulers.

If you, criminally, do not own any albums by The Trojans, then this cd would be a good starting point before you rush back to purchase the other albums. Check out this compilation, as it is hotter than the Sun.

GAZ MAYALL:

The eldest son of Blues legend John Mayall (John Mayall's bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton), Gaz was raised on a musical diet of R&B and was dragged around every beat, pop & rock festival and venues throughout the sixties as a child. First becoming a lifelong fan of reggae as a kid on the football terraces in the skin head era circa 1968-72.


THE TROJANS:

Specialising in ska & reggae with a dash of soul, funk, R&B and world roots, The Trojans were formed in late 1986 from the ashes of the premature demise of Gaz Mayall's first band Gaz's Rebel Blues Rockers where brief emergence on the London pub/club scene lasted from early 1982 to mid 83.

Debut gig was the Astoria on Charing Cross road by London's center point on the 23rd December 1986 supporting premier ska band Potato 5 and ska legend Laurel Aitken. Within two and a half years the Trojans headlined the same venue with the above acts supporting them. During the first few years they recorded several albums well received on the UK underground all on Gaz Mayall's own independent label Gaz's Rockin' Records, the first being 'Ala-Ska' featuring the classic single 'Gaelic Ska' launching a whole new genre of Afro-Celtic fusion that has since become a hallmark of The Trojans' sound.

Several albums were licensed to Japan from '88 with 'Spirit of Adventure' on Sony records opening up an avenue of succesive tours with mainstream coverage to a large audience where they are still very popular today.

Some original band members are still regular performers with the band including saxophonist Rudy Jones and drummer Mark Hamilton who began as percussionist. The line-up often features bagpipes, violin, guest female vocalists, on top of the regular two guitars, drum, bass percussion regular touring group with Gaz at the centre stage singing and playing melodica. Occasionally guest horn players and the Trojan's long time founder saxman Colin Humphries appear.

The trojans tour often mainly in Europe and do lots of one-off special shows at festivals, clubs, bars and private parties being popular with the young and old and people of all cultures to suit our multicultural day and age.
