Mad Bomber Society
Mad Bomber Society is a Canadian six-piece ska band that was started in 1997 in Edmonton. After years of playing solely in Edmonton, they began touring Western Canada. Their first studio album (Atomic-A-Go-Go) was released in 2001, and their second (Butchers, Stompers & Cheats) in 2012. Their music is heavily influenced by the 2 Tone movement, and is also touched by traditional Jamaican ska, 1950s rockabilly, 1960s surf rock, and 1970s punk rock. They "[have] an insanely wild, dance crazed live show that is shaking the dance floors of the West." (Canoe.ca)
Atomic A-Go-Go - 2001
Baby's Getting Busted on compilation All-Skanadian IV - 2003 (Stomp Records)
