VALKYRIANS on tour with DOUBLE BARRELLED in the trunk

After the release of meanwhile four albums and a lot of great concerts the smart Finns have made themselves a great name with their style conciously mixed range of songs from Jamaican reggae and Ska, Rocksteady, 2 tone and soul. No wonder that their great debut album and HIGH & MIGHTY as well as the second album THE BEAT THE OF OUR STREETS are out of stock since quite a long time and became desperately sought-after collectors items. The good news for Valkyrians fans: now both albums come again literally DOUBLE BARRELLED, once as a double CD (please order HERE) in the nice 8-asided Digipak and finally very soon also as a double vinyl album.

Tour Dates:

THE FRITS - new album THE GREATEST FRITS release 22nd january 2016

THE FRITS belong to the most outstanding ska bands from Germany. Due to their affinity to their idols from Coventry, they are  to date often called the "german SPECIALS". In 1993 the band had the fortune to record their "master piece" and last studio album NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU! in the 2Tone-Mekka Coventry by legendary ska producer ROGER LOMAS. On THE GREATEST FRITS we have assembled a hand picked selection of  songs from all of  their long time "out of stock" albums. With this collection you can delightfully pass in review the band history of this great ska band.

Abgesehen davon wird das Ding in Fachkreisen schon wieder total gefeiert. Wir zitieren mal:

"Eine Alternative zu dem Dauer-Schlittenglöckchengebimmel, das die meisten Weihnachtslieder des Mainstream-Pop durchzieht, ist das Album auf jeden Fall! Wer unterm Weihnachtsbaum mal nicht besinnlich herumsitzen sondern fröhlich glucksend skanken will, wird hier fein bedient."
(Irieites.de)

"Dr. Ring Ding ist mit dieser Aufnahme ein sehr persönliches Album gelungen, das auch außerhalb der Spekulatius-Saison funktionieren wird."
(Skablog.de)

Und deshalb glaubet alle dem OX, wo geschrieben steht:

"... wer noch einen innovativen Weihnachtssoundtrack sucht, der ist mit "Once A Year" bestens bedient und sollte jetzt zur Adventszeit zuschlagen.Order di Doctor, sonst holt er seine Rute
raus und steckt euch in den Sack." (OX-Fanzine)

Also gehet hin und holt euch rechtzeitig  HIER im PORK PIE SHOP dieses schöne Werk, solange es noch geht.

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.

Dr. Ring Ding - Once A Year auf Tour mit Adventskalender

Der SKAdvent ;-) kann langsam kommen ! Das neue Weihnachtsalbum ONCE A YEAR kommt rechtzeitig zum 1. Advent in die Läden. Dazu gibt es eine kleine Tour:

10.12.2015 D-Hamburg / Hafenklang
11.12.2015 D-Bremen / Tower
13.12.2015 D-Münster / Jovel Club

Bereits jetzt kann man schon vor dem offiziellen Release ab sofort die CD ONCE A YEAR hier im PORK PIE SHOP kaufen. Es gibt aber auch eine streng limitierte LUXUSVERSION mit Adventskalender für die Kids oder zum selber naschen.

Gleichzeitig tut man auch ein gutes Werk, denn pro verkaufter CD spenden Dr. Ring Ding und Pork Pie einen Euro für ein Wohnprojekt mit Jugendlichen.
