The Slackers

人にやさしく (Hito ni Yasashiku) b/w Strychnine

Ska in the World SIWI 163 7", released 2011 (Japan)

As if the Slackers covering the Blue Hearts once ("Linda Linda" on Slack in Japan) weren't enough, they showed up again with this one in 2011. "Hito ni Yasashiku" (the track they refer to as "Ganbare" on The Radio) was awesome, and the video was even better. This single got really tough to find really quickly. It might be the toughest to find of all the six Ska in the World singles, and is definitely the most expensive. There was nothing on the Ska in the World site that discussed pressing numbers, but most of their singles were limited to 300 copies, and I would believe that number for this one.
