A touch of urban grime and roughness delivered in a classy, suited-and-booted package. The most essential piece of the British ska scene; a thoroughly likable and lovable band who, while they were hardly braggadocios trail blazers who revolutionised music, never fail to deliver quality entertainment whenever you play them.

Anyone who puts "Hard" in their list deserves credit for it. I wouldn't, but I'm glad someone likes the damn thing. I've added more wish list items from your chart than any other. Thank you.
