ARIA Award winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra never do anything by half measures! Not only does the band perform with up to 35 members on stage, but they also record and release material at break neck speed.
So in 2018, paying respect to the Jamaican Sound System phenomenon, where artists would record and release new tracks on a weekly basis, MSO committed to doing the same.
For one whole year, 52 new songs, over 52 weeks!
We are not sure if any other band has done this before. It sure seems like a record of some kind has been broken.
The final tally of the years recording of 52 songs, worked out as 4 x 13 track albums.
Album 1 - The bands rendition of 13 ‘Ska Classics’, that had inspired the bands inception.
Album 2 – Presented the bands renditions of TV & Movie themes (a tradition in the Ska genre),
Album 3 + 4 – The band focused it’s full attention on original material, writing new songs for the project on practically a weekly basis.
As a result two albums ‘Read All About It’ and ‘Transmission Friday’s’, totaling 26 songs shows the maturity and dedication to putting a unique and relevant stamp on the Ska genre.
