The Combat Circus is back: in fact Mazel Tov represents the direct pursuance of the previous album. 13 tracks of combat punk-chanka, with the addition of a bonus track dedicated to the pirates of St. Pauli, the antifascist football fans. Lots of things link the two albums: thanks to Combat Circus we grew up, we became well known and we started to reflect our experiences and our thoughts in our music. Combat Circus was the beginning of a trip, Mazel Tov represents a coming back home, carrying experiences that enriched us and let us grow. So we started talking again about positive and negative stories we are living and we have already lived

RedSka were born 2001 in Romagna (Italy).RedSka propose in a strong way a ska-punk style together with reggae, reggaemuffin,swing, blues, hard-core, rocksteady influences. Their music meet with the Italiancustomers approval. Antifascism, antiracism and the great variety of musical influences make sure both the lovers of reggae style, such as rude boys, skinnheads and mods, and people who listen to these sounds for the first time love this kind of music.Publics involvement is very important for Redska. Sometimes, during the concerts, there are true "invasions" of fans on the stage! 2004, after a long live promotion, the first album "Mi son sbagliato nel confondermi" waspublished (Sana Records/Audioglobe). 2007 there was a new edition of this album forOne Step Records. Many artists, such as The Hormonauts and Enri (ex VIP200),collaborated at it. Until now Redska have held lots of concerts both in Italy and abroad."Le mie prigioni" (2008) is the new album of Redska. You can listen to rough soundswhich are at the same time very particular and make this album interesting; it is characterized by a perfect mix of ska, punk and reggae. This album is rich in collaborations, such as Banda Bassotti, Matrioska, Los Fastidios, The Good Fellas and Enri. "Le mie prigioni" contains 12 songs which refer to some aspects of our life: the Italian and international politics, the Church ("Laghi di sangue", "Ora dopo ora"), the hard life conditions of the workers, the difficulty with being consistent with our own principles ("Il castello", "Non cambiare mai"), the struggle for freedom and the full disapproval for the death penalty ("Il Partigiano", "Le mie prigioni") and the battle against prejudices("Rabbia e libert"). The songs deal with other "lighter" subjects too. The official presentation of the album took place on the 15th March 2008 at Vidia Rock Club in Cesena.

The soldiers of ska, rocksteady runaways and rebels of reggae bring you music for dancers and lovers.

Babylove and the van Dangos is a tight group of bonafide musicians and nomatter if its live acoustic performances on japanese television, cramped bars, bass booming festivals, this band always deliver. So keep your eyes peeled, because any stage, anywhere, at anytime BvD might be bringing their Rocksteady Ska and reggae to your town. After more than 200 shows played throughout the 4 year life of Babylove & the Van Dangos, their soulful sound has earned them a place up with the top live acts on the ska scene. Doing it the old fashion way BvD has toured Scandinavia, all over Europe and Japan to build a solid fan base and show that this is a band that always gets the peoples feet, moving to the sweet ska beat.

In the spring of 2004, this seven piece outfit was formed in Copenhagen Denmark by lead singer Daniel Babylove Broman to express the soulfulness of ska music. Less than 3 months later this baby was already up and running wild on the Danish ska scene. After a year of song writing, beer drinking and dancefloor shaking, Babylove & the Van Dangos recorded, produced and mixed their debut album Run run rudie, which was released on the bands own label Lovers Choice Records. The self released album has so far sold a solid 1500 copies whithout any promotional support except the music itself and the bands impressing live performances. Run run rudie was January 2007 re-released by the international ska label Megalith records and is distributed in Europe, U.S.A and Japan.

In February 2007 Babylove & the Van Dangos released a 7 vinyl recorded the classic way. One take, no cuts and lots of oldschool feeling. The single called Big Big Baboon was released by Mad Butcher Records and features the amazingly talented Coolie Ranx (ex-Toasters, ex-Pilfers) from New York who brings his personal rudeboy style to the track. The release was followed by heavy touring all over Europe in April 2007.

Later that year the 2nd album called Lovers choice was recording and it will be released by Megalith Records (CD/downloads) and Mad Butcher Records (Vinyls) April 2008 and feature 14 brand new songs and feature Doreen Shaffer from The Skatalites and will be mixed by the legendary Victor Rice from New York.

III IST ECHT DERBE ROCKSCHEISSE!!! Wir bringen den Dreck, der berall so abgeht, voll auf den Punkt!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keine Kompromisse, keine Gefangenen aber immer das fette Brett!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wir sind tierisch wtend und kmpfen deshalb gegen die ganzen Verrterschweine und Politiker und so, die alle blo abzocken und immer nur lgen!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wir reden Klartext und lassen uns von Niemandem den Mund verbieten!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bisher war Rock nur Pipikram - jetzt kommen wir!!!!!!!! Und zwar knallhart... Das ist Punk!!!!!!!!!!!!! So wie er sein muss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

III HAT GELOGEN. III ist nichts von alledem. Nicht mal ein Ausrufezeichen. Denn III erklrt nichts, III erzhlt lediglich: ber sich. ber dich. ber jetzt. Schn, dass es wieder eine deutsche Band gibt, die keine ausgedienten Phrasen und Bilder bemht. Und nichts komponiert, was kurzlebigen Trends untergeordnet werden muss. Ein universeller Bandname, den man ohne bersetzung versteht. III Charaktere. III Einflsse, III Instrumente. Und das war es dann auch schon mit der konstruierten Realitt von Rockmythen. Man spielt alternative Gitarrenmusik mit einer noch immer sprbaren Punkrock-Vergangenheit. Trotzdem hat III intelligente deutsche Texte zu bieten und vergibt genussvoll musikalische Ohrfeigen voller Sarkasmus und Humor. Am Ende bleibt die Hoffnung. Somit sind III eine Chance. Ein Vergngen. Und sie wnschen alles Gute.

III HAT EINE VORGESCHICHTE. Hier ist sie: Swoons, Psycho Gambola, Faked ID, Popzillas. Hunderte von Konzerten, Dutzende von Tontrgern. III ist etwas anderes. Gegrndet im Frhjahr 2007 in Stuttgart und ab sofort unterwegs.

III IST GUT GEBAUT. Stefan Becker - Gesang, Gitarre Dirk Kittelberger - Bass Dirk Hundt - Schlagzeug
