The world was not ready for Fishbone's debut. This thing came out of nowhere. I think this is one of the single most
influential releases of the decade as far as ska was concerned. It went a long way toward shaping the third wave ska scene,
and that was with only three ska tracks on the whole record. Of course, those three songs are all legendary. The other three
songs...less legendary. Still fun, though. I mean, how can you go wrong with a song called, "Voyage to the Land of the Freeze-Dried
Godzilla Farts?" No, really. That's what "V.T.T.L.O.T.F.D.G.F." stands for. I promise. I am
not creative enough to have made that up.
There were (at least) two U.S. versions of this record. I have found Japanese and Canadian versions of it as well. There may be more. There should at least be a European version out there as well, especially considering there were UK singles for two of the songs on it. In 2014, Asbestos Records re-pressed this one, adding the version of "Skankin' to the Beat" from the "Say Anything..." soundtrack. This version was released for Record Store Day - there were 1000 copies total: 100 on blue vinyl and 900 on red.
