Manic Mondays:

The Toasters
?In my opinion, The Toasters are to ska in America the 1980s and beyond what The Specials were to ska in the U.K. in the late '70s and early '80s, and what the Skatalites were to ska in Jamaica in the 1960s. The Toasters were innovators, creators, shapers of the music, evolving it in a fresh direction, blending it with the cultural influences in a very American manner, and I mean that in a completely complimentary way. Just as Byron Lee & the Dragonaires brought professionalism and polish to ska, allowing others to benefit from the fruits of their labor, so too did the Toasters' music allow numerous other bands to share in the spotlight of skill and success, many of whom have gone on to great heights. Upon the shoulders of giants.

Oh, yeah, and they kick ass! ?

-Heather Augustyn,
Author of SKA , An Oral History

In their 37th year the Toasters are hitting the gas, not the brakes. With an international all-star line-up their whirlwind global tour continues unabated across the continents with performances scheduled in Costa Rica, Hong Kong (HK International Ska Festival) and Estonia (Live Nation Showcase at Tallinn Music Week). The band also returns to Japan, China, Russia, Hawaii, South America and Mexico on top of regular touring in the USA and Europe playing over 60 shows in 24 countries from Sweden to Bulgaria.

Formed on the Lower East Side of NYC in 1981 the band is the longest running US SKA formation. They bridge the gap between England's 2-Tone movement and the American Ska explosion of the 90's which they are rightfully credited with starting. During the 3rd Wave Ska revival The Toasters formed the famous Moon Records label and kick-started the careers of dozens of bands.

The Toasters will return to the studio later this year to record songs for a new 7? vinyl 45 project.

By the numbers:

? Approaching 6000+ live shows
? CBGB'S core top 20 artist
? Mojo Magazine ranked #4 SKA band of all time
? Chosen by Dicky Barrett of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones as one of his top 5 ska bands
? Bandsintown #5 hardest working band 2014
Sponsorships include Reverend Guitars (International Ambassadors), Ernie Ball, Orange Amplification, Danny Cash Hot Sauce, Pickworld and Ska Brewing

Micah Schnabel (of Two Cow Garage)
In 2002, Two Cow Garage?the Columbus, Ohio-based three-piece featuring Micah Schnabel (vocals, guitar), Shane Sweeney (bass, vocals), and David Murphy (drums)?released their debut full-length, Please Turn the Gas Back On. The powerful rhythm and sweeping melody of the record?s opening track, ?Been So Long?, has since given rise to four additional full-length releases, a handful of singles, and a few solo efforts. The band has paraded their brand of heart-wrenching, yet ferocious rock-n-roll through countless North American tours and several European sojourns. Two Cow Garage?s latest effort, Sweet Saint Me, not only garnered airplay on WXPN?s World Café where it was showcased as a featured artist selection, but also found its way on to numerous critics? best-of lists.

As one of the most consistently-touring indie bands today, Two Cow Garage continues to captivate audiences with live shows that serve-up manic stage energy, gritty chord changes, and subtle lyric-mindedness. The band?s intense, fiery persona conjures authentic tunes that would be as at home in a Raymond Carver story as they are on a stereo in the dead heat of an August, midwestern night.

2013 will see the release of Two Cow Garage?s sixth full-length album entitled, The Death of the Self-Preservation Society. The effort will prove to continue the arc of the band?s development and further blur the lines between rock, Americana, and punk.
