Son of Dad - Thems the Breaks

Son of Dad - Thems the Breaks
Son of Dad appeared on the Adelaide music scene in 2005, exhibiting their own unique display of what they interpreted as "third-wave ska"; mincing together incriminating sound grabs from interviews with members of Reel Big Fish, and laying them over stolen dub beats. Unfortunately, the band encountered several lawsuits from Reel Big Fish's label, hence deciding that creating music more "traditionally" fitting with the ska-reggae-punk ideology, would be entirely more profitable, legal, and fun... At least they got two out of three correct.

Since this little mishap, the boys have established quite a rabid fanbase, often filling to the rafters some of Adelaide's best live venues... with drunks looking for any way out of the cold, and people who think there's a Resignators cover band playing inside... oh, and those who genuinely enjoy Son of Dad's fun, offbeat and very danceable style of music.

About this track...
