In and Ska-P held their first tour in Japan. The band name is a pun on the Spanish word for 'escape' and ska p unk. The name further takes advantage of the letter k common to ska, and since the early 80s, also closely associated with the Madrid working-class district of Vallecas , as a symbol of working-class pride.
Thus, Valle k as and many other occurrences of the k instead of the c or qu in Spanish words, reflecting also a feature of the Basque , which has neither the qu nor the c , replacing both with k. Ska-P was formed by a group of friends in Vallecas Madrid in as a ska band. The initial lineup was Pulpul, lead vocals and guitar; Toni Escobar, guitar and vocals; Julio, bass; Kogote, electronic keyboard and vocals; and Pako, drums.
It did not sell many copies compared with later efforts, but it gave the group recognition, especially for the song "Como un rayo," a fight song for the soccer team Rayo Vallecano , which became fairly popular in Vallecas.
They played various concerts as support bands for Extremoduro and Platero y tu despite still having a small following. The guitarist Toni left the band in due to the impossibility of combining his work with the band's schedule and Joxemi took his place. Pipi, a friend of Pulpul, also joined the band.
Previously he only entered onstage in costume in some concerts and helped the group set up. From this point, he took the role of secondary vocalist while continuing, during some songs, to appear in costume. In the group released their second album, El vals del obrero , on RCA Records, selling many records and becoming well known for the song "Cannabis"; and they took part in the 9th Vallekas Rock Festival, an event which increased their reputation.
Pako, drummer and founding member of Ska-P, left the band in the middle of the tour, and Luismi took his place. Also participating in Arezzo Wave, an Italian music festival. In they recorded Planeta Eskoria.

TV Shows. Sound Library. Verified Purchase. I bought this album, in part, to replace a few of my old vinyl singles. I already have a few of the tracks on CD mainly from Madness and Specials albums but the rest of this album provides a fantastic spread of both the 2-Tone era of the late 70's and early 80's, which I grew up with, and older Ska hits going back to the 's. These types of compilations tend to be rather hit-and-miss with a few classic tracks filed out with lots of cheap dross.
However, I don't think there is a bad track on this album. Some of the tracks may be a little less familiar but they are worthy of inclusion nonetheless. I've had this on in the car for the last couple of weeks and it really brightens up a miserable Scottish morning. Whilst it is hardly the last word in the genre, I'd recommend this as a great introduction to Ska. Great Songs that just put a smile on your face. It really does do what it says on the tin.
I bought this cd for a friend he absolutely loves it great songs from way back Watch this!!!! My first experience of this type of music was back in the two tone days of Madness, Specials, Beat, Selecter, Bad Manners and Bodysnatchers. At the time I was simply blown away with the sheer energy and passion the music created. There was also a terrific dress code to accompany this new style.
Two-Tone was born. Its now a household name for those years, but meekly began as a low budget record label by Jerry Dammers keyboard player with The Specials. What this album does magnificently is blend the power and agression of the two tone years with the original recordings of the aerlier years.
Every single track on this album is a gem. If you are into this music in a big way, then you will know what I mean. If you like it - which you will! Just tell us which tapes you want!
