I looked & there's not thread for them yet. Anyways, nicked from their myspace:
The Toasters, America's longest running Ska band.
The Toasters have been around since 1981 and will undertake their 25th YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR IN 2007. Formed on the Lower East Side of Manhattan they traded punches with the best of them at the legendary CBGB's Club (RIP) on the Bowery. With early releases produced by the great Joe Jackson they zoomed into prominence as America's early ska pioneers and have been blazing the way for the rest of them ever since. Alongside bands like Fishbone they helped engineer the American ska craze in the 80's and 90's.
