Protest party Ska!
The band behind UK chart top 5 political smash hit ‘Liar Liar’, Captain Ska were formed in 2010 when trumpeter / producer Jake Painter decided there wasn’t a big enough musical response to austerity and neoliberalism. Comprised of some of London’s finest session musicians, this 8-piece band’s brass filled fusion of Ska, Reggae and Hip-Hop has ever since been filling clubs, festivals and political events across the UK in what the band like to describe their “Protest Party” to get people thinking and dancing.
