I recently got a copy of The Adjusters comp 'StormWarning: An Adjusters Anthology 1996-2001'. The band mixes ska, soul and funk with left wing politics and sound great. Anyway, in the sleeve notes it says that they opened their first gig with a Redskins cover. Does anyone know which song they used to cover? And did they ever record it?
Unfortunately, they did split up a while ago. They're last recording is "Otis redding will save America". You can find Clay a dvd made by Laurel Parker (who happens to be the wife of Matt Parker, the organist of the Adjusters) on this site : www.mobleystreet.com/ Clay (a romantic skamedy) is a short with the adjusters playing as actors and it has the video for "Our Town" as a bonus (also filmed by Laurel). Wonderful song, wonderful video. Laurel deserve a support
SO in answer to your question, we aren't really together now, though there are discussions about trying to do something together someday. Our organist lives in London now, and three of us are in california, one in New York and one in Chicago, so it's pretty rough...

A classic band. Bazza, I've never heard of the release you mentioned. Where did you pick it up at? I'll try to do some digging, but I'm pretty sure I can find a picture of them playing at a RASH conference in Cincinnati bck in '96. Another good band to check out along the same line would be the Inciters.
We're anti-racist so they call us left-wing scum, but who'll be laughin when we got the nazis on the run?

I love The InCiters! I met the band at a gig in Oxford a few years back. Shame they split up the other year but I have heard that Rick might be putting a new line up of the band back together. InCiters singer Alana Turner is also releasing solo records now. Her single 'Darling I Will Stay' on Axe records is well worth checking out.
