Two and a Half White Guys – Leather Jackets and Moustache Wax (For fans of Sublime, the Specials, The Slackers)

Don’t judge a band by it’s name. I avoided listening to Two and a Half White Guys for a while because I was expecting some crappy 3rd wave ska band fronted by a pre-pubescent boy that whines over music that tries everything they it can to sound like Catch-22 while playing Reel Big Fish’s cover of “Take On Me”. Wow, I was wrong… way wrong.

Two and a Half White Guys aren’t even a third wave ska band, and play with a more reggae feel in the veins of Sublime, but keeps true to their roots by pulling from influences such as The Specials. The vocals are clean and smooth, complimenting the chill ska/reggae/dub music.

A great album to welcome the warm weather that is right around the corner.

  1. I love this band, I have their first album called simply Two and a Half White Guys (2002).
    Their musical output exceeds their tongue-n-cheek name but their creativity and inability to be categorized keeps them off most people's radar.
