Artist: The Planet Smashers
Song: “Hey Hey”
Album: No Self Control
Montreal, Canada’s The Planet Smashers have been on the scene for a while. While many bands have tried and failed to take ska and make it their own, The Planet Smashers have been able to brand their own style that has long outlived the “third wave” of the late nineties, that brief blip in popular music that saw groups like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Reel Big Fish become household names, only to fall back to obscurity a few years later.
The Planet Smashers released Decent into the Valley of the Planet Smashers” in mid 2011, their 7th studio album. The band still tours occasionally, most often near their hometown, but for the most part fans have to make do with the next best thing — their back catalog of releases. Check out “Hey Hey” below, from their 2001 release, No Self Control.
