THE MOON INVADERS & THE UPSESSIONS: Soundclash Series Vol. 2 (Vinyl 7″)

THE MOON INVADERS & THE UPSESSIONSBadasonic Records follow-up their Aggrolites/ Slackers Soundclash Series Vol. 1 with round two in what you might call a ‘Low Countries Derby’ as Belgium’s Moon Invaders go head-to-head with The Netherlands’ The Upsessions – each playing one of the other band’s songs on the label’s new 45. The latter deliver Walk Don’t Run as a breezy slice of midtempo ska not dissimilar to the original while the Belgians render Ride On Donkey‘s original ska sound in a rather slower, more lilting, reggae ’69 stylee. It’s a close-run thing. If you dig the pre-history and early history of the reggae sound, you might find yourself in trouble when it comes to picking a favourite.
