Love and Dancing is the second collection of 80's new wave tracks that the band has recorded in a ska and reggae style. Instead of releasing all the songs together as an album, the band will be releasing a song and video a month over the rest of 2016 with a goal of having all 10 songs compiled in the collection by the end of the year. 

The album is called "Love and Dancing" because the songs the band has recorded so far are all about the ups and downs of love and the joys of dancing. It also pays homage to the Human League who had a side project called The League Unlimited Orchestra and released a remix of their "Dare" album with that title in the early 80's. 

The first release from the album in April 2016 is a punky ska/new wave version of Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" which itself was a cover of the 1960's northern soul classic recorded by Gloria Jones. 

The second release from the album in May 2016 is a 2-Tone/reggae version of The Cure's 1985 UK hit "Close To Me" from their studio album "The Head on The Door." 

The third release from the album in June 2016 is a bouncy reggae version of Wang Chung's "Dance Hall Days" which was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic in 1984.

Your favorite 80's New Wave songs wrapped in a loving ska and reggae embrace!
NOTES
Truth be told, the twin pillars of 2 Tone ska and 80's new wave music sustained me through much of a challenging youth during the 1980's. 2 Tone revealed harsh economic, social, and racial injustices with a power and a fury that was undeniable, but also danceable. It forever influenced my worldview and moved me to learn an instrument and start a ska band (Bigger Thomas) that I've played in for more than 25 years. Though I tend …
