Ballistic Allshorts [Australia]

199x-200x [RIP]
It was a 6-piece from Canberra. They played ska-core with trumpet and trombone. Pretty fast and heavy, i'd say for the fans of Lesdystics.

Members: Ian - vocals; Simon - guitar; Matt - bass; Jez Woodhill - trumpet;
Robert Parks Jnr - trombone; Marcus - drums.

I can't find any pictures and im not 100% sure that the cover art is right. I couldn't find any way to contact them and ask a permission, but i think everyone should win from this post. Cause too few people heard them, and most part of those who heard know just their cover to The Specials - Man at C&A.
