The Skoidats- A Cure For What Ales You (1999)

The Skoidats are an Oí-Ska-Punk band from Montana of all places. They formed in 1995 and released two albums and a split. Interesting sound but there seems to be a severe limit on their style of ska. I have always felt that must have been a contributing factor in regards to their break up. It is likely a result of the Oí influence, which is more monotonous than even punk rock. Seriously, you hear a couple of good Oí songs and that’s it, the entire genre can be “played-out” in an hour.
But I still like them, one for the collection anyway.
