…There’s a silver lining, though: All Day at least lives up the curse of a developing ska band. While a soul-ska amalgam is nothing revolutionary by any means — particularly for The Pietasters who were doing it a decade ago — All Day straddles the line between soul and ska, wavering between funky Motown-esque numbers, downbeat soul-shouter ska tunes and tracks that dip their toes in both styles. All Day doesn’t have the feel of an album trying to point out the obvious links between the two genres, or even an attempt to solidify a hybrid of the two. It’s an effort that proves, once and for all, that ska and soul are closer together on the musical tree than most people think.
They don’t have any of the lyrics on-line yet, because the album was just released a year ago in August of 2007. So I thought I might give a quote from a sticker on the promotional CD I bought for $1.95 at Rasputin’s:
"We may not be rich but we can claim some amazing experiences," says the Pietasters vocalist, Stephen Jackson. It’s that experience, combined with a commitment to expand beyond their humble beginnings as a ska band which are at the foundation of All Day, their first album of new material in 5 years. Produced by James Brown’s trusted sound engineer Todd Harris. All Day finds the band capturing their most raw and soulful sound to date with an authentic mix of reggae, soul, ska, and garage.

There are several really great songs on this CD, especially the catchy tune, Don’t Wanna Know. It has an original sound to it like it was produced in the late 60’s but with top-rate sound equipment. This album is a must to listen to; so don’t put it too far down on your list of tapes to get and hear!
I got "Fozzy (part 1)" on by the Pietasters from the album, All Day. Here’s a great video by them, "Out all night," which isn’t on that album, but I’m watching the video to:
Edit: This link is no longer working. I gotta find another one.
The video is also very well choreograped, interesting, and has a good brr-ass section too.
Better pull your leg-warmers up and put the top down. Heat it up; ’cause it also rocks!
Their self titled cd is badass
Def will do on the Expendables.
Also i wanna thank QuickHit again, picked up Willis by the Pietasters as well, most def badass
