The Toasters in their prime. This one was solid. I swear this used to be a simple entry. No longer, I'm afraid. Initially, Hard Band for Dead was a CD-only release on Moon Ska in the States and in Brazil (there was also a U.S. Moon Ska promo CD). was released as 2 Tone Army on Pork Pie in Germany and as a Polish cassette. Megalith re-pressed the 2 Tone Army CD in both 2011 and 2012. In 2011, Jump Up! and Megalith combined to press 2 Tone Army on vinyl for the first time. I'm pretty sure it was initially on grey marble and green marble vinyl, but it also ended up on white marble and clear vinyl. They re-pressed it again on black vinyl in 2017, to go along with a Jump Up! cassette version.
