      Enjoyable!

      Symarip's Skinhead Moonstomp is a nice little compilation of Symarip's best songs. The all black ska and reggae band from the UK, were one keen to recognise their early and loyal followers, the skinheads and released plenty of tracks dedicated to them: Skinhead Moonsomp, Skinhead Jamboree, Skinhead Girl for instance.

      Skinhead Moonstomp starts off the album with

      I want all you skinheads to get up on your feet
      Put your braces together and your boots on your feet
      And give me some of that old moonstomping

      and dates back to a time when black ska and white skinheads went hand in hand. This may not be the best skinhead reggae album but it's certainly a very good recording and one with plenty of hits on it, featuring lots of tracks that would later be covered by bands like The Specials. The sound does sound a bit dated and basic but it's enjoyable all the same, although the album is quite long and as a lot of the tracks have the same sound, you might be ready for it to finish by the later tracks.
