The Something Somethings [UK]



2005-2008 [RIP]
It was a ska-core/crack rock band from Bideford, Devon, United Kingdom. Started as a 5-piece, they release EP in 06. Later they added horns. The songs from this period of bands life went into The Crab, that was released more than a year after they split up. I should also mention that a great british DIY label Pumpkin Records is runned by members of TSS (Matt and Bo).
Chears and happy new year!

U Can't Say No! [Japan]



1998-PRESENT
Ska-core/ska punk 5-piece act, i guess, for the fans of United Skates (they have sax too) but these are less thrashy. Shared the stage with Link 80, Capdown, The Suicide Machines. I think not enough people outside Japan know about these guys. And it took me lots of time an efforts to get everything together and make this post.
U Can't Say No! is heavily influenced by old school hardcore, last release include 3 covers on hc bands i like a lot (H2O, 7 Seconds, Sick Of It All). They have lots of awesome songs like Victim Is You and Crime Of Christ. There are also some poppy songs that i don't like, but that's not a big problem)) 2007 release is my favorite.

Members: : aktk da 666 - vocals; sukebilly - guitar; shuji "xtar" haya - bass;
yasu-o - drums; aki-united - tenor saxophone.

Dead End Job [New Zealand]



2007-PRESENT
Crack rock steady band from Auckland, NZ. Most of us would know them
because of great song The World in Global Unity comp by Riot Ska Records.
They broke up in the beginning of 2009, mostly because of not having
a constant drummer. But in october they recorded 3 new tracks, and they are ok.
So they are half alive right now and, maybe, in future they will record
everything in a good quality)

Members: : Geoff "Whitey" - vocals; Paul - guitar; Haiden - bass.

Vanzetti Crime [USA]



late 2007 - early 2009 [RIP]
Awesome ska punk/ska-core/crack rock band from Salt Lake City, Utah. For a short life of the band they created around 18 songs, pretty different and most of them i like a lot. I think their music is fresh and unique. And only 43 listeners on last.fm. That's bad!

Members: : Erin Tooke - vocals; Mike Westbrook - guitar/vocals; Austin Wood - bass; Trey Bird - drums.

They released 2 3-track EP's: Communicating Through Bombs in 2007 and ...All We Have in 2008. In december 2008 they recorded full-length. It includes all tracks from EP's except 10 Year Plan.
