El Bosso & die Ping Pongs - new album release on 29th august 2014

With their brand new release HIER UND JETZT ODER NIE (also the album title track)  EL BOSSO THE PING PONGS celebrate their very own party hedonism with twelve great new anthems.
Musically and lyrically we can find here once again, what we have always loved about this band. Beautiful Party songs like  BIS ZUM NÄCHSTEN TAG (till next day), the opener EGAL (no matter) the oldschool style and danceable TANZ TANZ TANZ or the Catchy instrumental BRUTUS. As for the lyrics, we enjoy ourselves with delightful ironic stories à la REICH ABER GLÜCKLICH (wealthy but happy) or the macabre lyrics of EINSAME LEICHE(lonely corpse).
You can enjoy the whole set at the record release party in Muenster the 6th september or one week early at the SPIRIT festival in Niedergöhrsdorf near Berlin.

The Spirit Of Ska- Silver Jubilee Edition

Record Release Party at the Berlin Ska City Festival  25th january 2014 !

If it's not madness, it must be love ;-) How else can you run a ska label for 25 years.
Founded 1989 in Berlin, right in the year when the wall was down, Pork Pie started as the first ska record label in Germany and made "Ska made in Germany" popular in the whole world. The compilation series "SKA.. SKA.. SKANDAL!" and "UNITED COLORS OF SKA" as well as albums of  BAD MANNERS,  TOSATERS and many other inernational bands are nowadays part of every good ska collection.
The kick-off for the 25th PORK PIE jubilee starts with "THE SPIRIT OF SKA - SILVER JUBILEE EDITION", which reflects a selection of the best songs, carefully chosen from the Pork Pie releases of the past five years.
Record Release Party zum Berlin Ska City Festival am 25.1.2014 !

Internationally renowned Bands like , DR. RING DING SKA-VAGANZA, THE VALKYRIANS, SKAOS or MR. REVIEW as well as the german ska heroes of the likes of EL BOSSO & DIE PING PONGS or BLECHREIZ.
If you consider the wide range from bands like BABYLOVE & THE VAN DANGOS, TOMMY TORNADO or YELLOW UMBRELLA  to DISTEMPER,  DALLAX or the BERLIN BOOM ORCHESTRA, it's amazing how well these extermely different styles go together. As a special delicacy comes a brand new SKAOS song as a pre-release from their new album "More Fire" coming in april 2014.
