Let it be well known that a band doesn’t have to be around very long to have a tremendous impact on their genre. From 1997-2000, Edna’s Goldfish set the Long Island Ska scene on fire with their infectiously poppy, ridiculously energetic live performances. Touring with many of the heavyweights of the genre, the group exploded in popularity and captivated listeners far and wide.
It must be an unwritten rule of pop culture that bands from 20 years ago are destined to get popular again. Can anyone out there explain this phenomenon? Is it because old folks (like me) want to remember their youth, or the youth who weren’t born yet the first time around need to somehow seem credible in their fanhood? A bit of both, perhaps? Doesn’t matter to me all that much, especially when bands like The Toadies team up with a band like Helmet to do a co-headlining tour. Kudos whoever thought this one up!
