The Trojans


Trojan Warriors: For Your Protection

Moon Ska MR088 CD, released 1996 (U.S.)

I don't think it would really be possible to explain just how important Gaz Mayall is to the ska world. His band, The Trojans, was a ubiquitous force in the UK ska scene for a good, long time. Beyond that, Gaz's label, Gaz's Rockin' Records, really kept ska alive globally in the '80s and early '90s. Gaz was also extremely influential in the Japanese ska scene. He released the first Ska Flames album back in 1988, and The Ska Flames effectively became Japan's Skatalites. All the other important bands there through the '90s and beyond can be traced in some way to The Ska Flames...and Gaz must be given some credit for their rise. All of The Trojans' albums were released on Gaz's label. This one was a greatest hits of sorts, only available on CD from Moon Ska.
