Hello people!!!!

One more time, this cool norwegian band, No Torso, is digging in skankers' heads, specially after their US tour.
They posted a new blog on myspace, showing a journal full of compliments for them...... It's so great...

This is the first part:
"I'd like to go on record and say that, after probably close to 100 listens, I'm certain that No Torso's "Ready Already" EP is the most inspiring ska release I've heard in my own lifetime. A bold and obviously biased statement, I know, but I've just never been so moved by a ska release in the admittedly short 20 years I've been alive"...................

This great norwegian ska band was born about 7 years ago and always heading up to improve even more by the time.... This "8 smelly guys" had their first tour abroad in USA, big step. Although they had some problems, it was a wonderful experience and all the people who could attend the shows enjoyed them to the max. They were back home telling the experience and stuff... We'll be waiting for them to show us the pix...

Below, i've posted 2 discs. And the new EP is great too, it contains 6 tracks and will be released by august (september in the US)..... But dont wait that long, u can now pre-order the new EP at
