Rude Bones


There'll Be Lots of Hard Times Along the Way

Phalanx PXLP-011 LP/PXCD-011 CD, released 1997 (Japan)

Moon Ska MR118 CD, released 1997 (U.S.)

Rude Bones is a great ska-punk band, and this was one of their best albums. They have a lot, though, and most were not released outside of Japan. The global marketplace makes it much easier to check those out now. You can find them all for sale on Discogs and many are on Spotify. Anyway, this one was released in both Japan and the U.S., but only came out on vinyl in Japan.
