They have released nine studio albums, most of them on Moon Ska Records. The Toasters experienced a small degree of commercial success in the late 1990s due to the popularity of third wave ska in North America. Their song "Two-Tone Army" is also the theme song for the Nickelodeon show KaBlam! (credited as the Moon Ska Stompers) and they recorded background music in many TV commercials, including for America Online and Coca-Cola. Their song "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down" appeared in the pilot episode of the animated series Mission Hill. They still perform around the world, and in 2007 they celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a new studio album, One More Bullet.
Spies Like Us
Behold, the first ska band out of San Antonio, Spies Like Us! Bringing you the traditional sounds of ska with surf and reggae influences.
Spies is an eight piece band consisting of trombone, trumpet, guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, and two vocalists. In the first ten months after we started, we played over fifteen shows in cities all over south Texas including San Antonio, Houston, Seguin, New Braunfuls, and Corpus Christi. We've played with other Texas bands including Slaphappy, The Grown Ups, Los Skarnales, The Suspects, and The Contradicks. We have also played with some out of state bands (like Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Less Than Jake, Let's Go Bowling, The Pietasters, Reel Big Fish, Regatta 69, The Rudiments, Skankin' Pickle, The Skunks, and Slapstick...) If we ever come to your town or if you are ever in ours, come see the band that keeps your feet movin'!
Steady Legend is an original ska/reggae outfit. We have an upbeat, fun, catchy sound that all music listeners can enjoy. Come dance to some Steady Legend at a show soon!
