Synopsis

Amazon.com
This low-fi recording may just be the very best ska album of the year. Chris Murray manages to evoke not only the crackly sound of the old, glorious Studio One 45s, he manages to write songs every bit as good. And yes, it's all his own work. Amazingly, Moon was a little reluctant to sign him. He may not fit in with the slowly burgeoning Third Wave, harking back much, much more to the old school of Jamaican ska, but he's probably the white boy with the best feel for it. Some of this was so good that it seriously seemed as if he'd just taped an old, obscure single to confuse everybody. But no, Venice Shoreline Chris is the real thing. --Chris Nickson

"Every year I hope to find something new to listen to. This year I found Venice Shoreline Chris and I knew it was cool right off the bat. This guy has got a ton of sound and it is ruff enough. I will keep it quick and simple, this CD has some fun tunes on it - get it."
