Here in The BombLab we like to explore Ska from around the globe. We came across this 8 piece band, Richcracker from Malang in East Java, Indonesia and we loved them.
Formed in 2010 these talented youngsters have an excellent 3 piece brass section to which they often add another 2 trumpets…awesome sound!! They play Ska in all it’s forms, old-school, punk/skater, rocksteady, 2 tone… and are confident in every one of them. One reviewer describes them brilliantly as ‘a little trailer-style ska punk if you like’ . We like!
Hopefully we will see them at the London International Ska Festival soon, but if you like a bit of regional variation in your ska check out their tunes below
