Been awhile since I been on here. Glad to see it's live and kicking.
Question for the day....prompted by the untimely but sadly predictable death of Amy Winehouse (and those who can link my question with this topic win mega esoteric info kudos and a free red star pin, lol).
And the question is...does anyone have info on the great ska/bluebeat band 100 Men. I could do an extensive search but this is the sort of thing where I like feedback first before spending hours fucking around on the computer. Need a discography, possible downloads etc.
I supported 100 Men back in the mid 90's when I was with the Ska band The G Men at a Scottish Ska Festival. As for a discography they released very little, just the 1 single 'Reggae Juk', a flexi disc 'Time Is Tight' and 'Yeah Yeah Girl' appeared on a ska compilation. They did make a few demos though and I have a few. Mik did try to reform the band a few years back with Jon from The Ferrymen but nothing came of it.
There's a few tracks on YouTube of the band the best of which is this video -
Before 100 Men singer/guitarist Mik and drummer Stig were in the band Skin Deep who made the 1 album 'More Than Skin Deep'. The singer from Skin Deep Wayne went on to form The Ferrymen who sounded a bit like the Housemartins.
