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. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Q-CVfmz8LmA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> http://www.porkpieska.com Pork Pie, info@porkpieska.com 5571 RUHRPOTT SKA EXPLOSION 2016 - Record Release THE FRITS Die 4.

(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. http://www.porkpieska.com Pork Pie, info@porkpieska.com 5475 Weihnachtsalbum von Dr. Ring Ding - Once A Year !

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. http://www.porkpieska.com Pork Pie, info@porkpieska.com 4748 THIS IS SKA 2014 -the PORK PIE Silver Jubilee Editio On 27th/28th of june 2014, the legendary THIS IS SKA Festival will open it's doors again at the wondful Wasserburg Rosslau location.

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.
