It’s impossible to talk about ska music in the USA and not mention The Toasters. Ever since introducing their brand of 2-Tone influenced ska music to an unsuspecting American public in 1982, The Toasters have been on point of a movement that is now taking the country by storm — even Billboard has dubbed The Toasters as ‘ska pioneers’.
