A little history about them, the band formed in 1985 in Florida. They called themselves the Mighty Mighty Bosstones because there was already a band from the 50's called the Bosstones, so they just put 'the mighty mighty' in front of it they first appeared on a album called 'Smashing up the nation'. They split up for about a year so some of the band members could finish high school, Nate Albert and Joe Gittleman. They recorded there first album called 'Devil's night out' on Taang records, a Boston label. Then they released a single for "Where'd You Go?" and the "Wher'd You Go?" EP. In 1992, "More Noise and other disturbances was released. On this album, they used two new horn players. In 1993 they signed with Mercury Records. That year they released "Ska-Core, the Devil and More." They also released "Don't know how to party" which has been their greatest success. In 1994, they released "Question the Answers". In the summer of 1995, they were one of the headlining acts at Lollapalooza. They also hosted MTV's 120 Minutes and performed live. In 1997, they released "Let's Face It" and their first single was "The Impression that I Get".
Personally I only have there first album 'Devils Night Out', and this one, 'A Jackknife to a Swan', and I love them both. I would say they are a Ska band hence the saxophones and trombones, but some of the songs are heavy in the guitar sense and Dickys voice is somewhat sounding like Metalica, This works in my opinion as it's a different sound of Ska.
But I will be trying to get more of there stuff.
