1作目でカヴァーしたロシア民謡〈ペドラーズ〉の新録で始まる、デビュー25周年のアニヴァーサリー・アルバム。熱気のたぎるインストを軸に、粋な歌モノ、MONGOL80010-FEETアジカンとのコラボ曲、〈交響曲第九番〉などの珍しく大ネタ揃いなカヴァーを収録。円熟をめざすのではなく、好奇心を燃料にしてワイルドに突き進んだ、四半世紀に渡るトーキョー・スカの挑戦の歴史を凝縮したような強力盤だ。

 

[English Translation]
Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra  "SKA ME FOREVER"

The band's 25th anniversary album begins with their newly-recorded "Peddlers", a Russian folk song they covered in the first album. Keeping their trademark energetic instrumental tunes, the album also features sophisticated vocal tracks, collaborated songs with other Japanese rock bands, MONGOL800, 10-FEET and ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, as well as the rare-case major classic covers such as The Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven. Instead of seeking for maturity, the band keeps going wild, maintaining their curiosity for always challenging something new. This is the album that conveys the essence of what Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra has achieved in the past quarter century.
