Secret Agent 8
Maybe you know ‘ska’ and maybe you don’t. Here’s your chance to get a dose of it up close. Modern Ska, in it’s Americanized form of ‘jazzed up’ Jamaican Raggae, is best described by listening to it. Nobody does it better than Secret Agent 8. If there’s such a thing as Texas Ska, this is it. Expect big things from this group from Texas City, Texas, who take their name from a Hitchcock film, and take their music seriously. Their live show is a fabulous adventure, thus it’s no wonder they are invited to play some prestigious events. Their CDs exist so that you can get your ‘fix’ until the next live show... and we have them. This award-winning group of diverse individuals pounds out one high-energy song after another on their self titled debut CD, released on 008 Records. This is a feel-good CD from start to finish. Even if you’ve never heard of the Skatilites, Madness, or Regatta 69, you’re going to be a Ska fan right away. Moreover, you’re going to be a Secret Agent 8 fan. Their sophomore offering is "START. ACTION. STOP." (008 Records) and it is a 'coming of age' project which shows maturity and a major progression in musical dynamic. This crop of new tunes is the best yet from the 'big old band from Texas.' The diversity of this disc is refreshing and helps present the band in a hit-making potential. Will Frith, Kenny Dickman, and Zack Cayton platoon most of the writing duties, and they are forceful songwriting machines. Tight horns, masterful arrangements, and yet another great production spell 'success' for Secret Agent 8. Get both discs and save! And yes, this is true Texas music.
