Skanatra: Skanatra

Not quite in the Irish-Folk-Punk-Whateverthefuck category is Skanatra.
Skanatra’s début self-titled CD could be reviewed in two words “this grooves”. If you haven’t guessed from the band name, Hoboken’s (where else could they be from) Skanatra are a Ska tribute band to the chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra. Ten tracks of Frank’s best know classics (“Lady Is a Tramp”, “Fly Me to the Moon”, “High Hopes”, “Witchcraft”, “The Coffee Song”, “Luck Be a Lady”, “My Kind of Town”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “New York, New York”, “That’s Life”), all catchy as hell yet still true to the originals. A great party album.
