A LOL SKA Special
By ORIGINAL SKANKSTA W.D.
The ska and reggae industry is thriving with many bands coming up with ways to bring originality back to the genre. The Supervillains are one of these bands. Residing out of Orlando,
Florida this band has the funky fresh reggae sound that keeps it’s fans wanting more.
The Supervillains released their fifth studio album, Massive in 2008. Massive has some originals as well as some songs that appeared on previous albums. Little Girl, Smok’em, Crippy Weed and St. Thomas, plus a few more, have been edited and given a new feel that really changes the sound of the song. The band brought in former Inner Circle member Christopher Bentley for Smok’em. Also, Slightly Stoopid’s Kyle MacDonald for The Pit.
The group also did a cover of Billy Joel’s - Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) which, in my opinion, is much better than the original.
What you see is what you get with the Supervillains, some good partying music that includes some funny lyrics, great horns, groovy bass lines and great vocals. The band is known for its love of Marijuana, but also includes a subtle political message as they hope the great green grass is one day legalized.
This album is sure to fly to the tops of your most played. I personally listen to it at least once a day, just for good measure, and recommend the same for you!
