Those Damn Bandits is the first full-length release by the then-ska band The Pharmaceutical Bandits, now known as Rx Bandits. Originally released in 1997 through Antedote Records (CDSmallwood), the album was later re-released in 1998 after Drive-Thru Records signed the band. The new version featured slightly different artwork, including the Drive-Thru logo, and was branded DTR release number 5.

Additional Notes[edit]

  • "I Don't Care" - although noted on the album as being three minutes long - instead runs four minutes, thirty seconds. It features the band and some friends singing "I'm in a Band" by The Scholars a cappella. The track fades out, and a few seconds later a bonus track fades in; it is listed as "?!?" in the album's liner notes.
  • "?!?" begins with the group still singing "I'm in a Band." Following this, a number of conversations can be heard at once, and the group sings another song by The Scholars entitled "I Love Guys in Bands." Matt Embree can also be heard playing both "Pool Shark" and "Saw Red" by Sublime on an acoustic guitar. "Saw Red" was recorded for the Punk vs. Ska Round 2 compilation with Matt Embree and Diana Smallwood Bond on vocals.
  • The album is seen as a collector's item to many Rx Bandits fans, and has been sold on eBay for upwards of $150.
  • Included among the additional personnel are members of other SoCal ska-punk bands. Namely, James Randall Briggs II of The Aquabats (where he is better known as Jaime The Robot), Chris Colonnier of Jeffries Fan Club and The Forces Of Evil, and Jackie Ojeda of Low Pressure.
