Voodoo Glow Skulls
Adicion, Tradicion, Revolucion (Victory Records)

By: Mike SOS

The long-running ska outfit Voodoo Glow Skulls return with a new album that sounds like the perfect mixture of every facet of Los Angeles street culture. From the old school punk rock blitz of "Mayhem and Murder" to the more rootsy feel of "Eville" to the straight-up rock steady ska of "Smile Now, Cry Later", this septet cranks out the kind of evil ska that Memphiskapheles did back in the day. Only difference is that VGS performs with a decisive Latino flavor, as songs like the title track are sung predominantly in Spanish. However, the album isn't without its problems: the crappy mix virtually jumbles the release's overall sound and feel, yet down deep inside this 14-track disc, there's a wild house party waiting to burst out of control.
