Piranhas, The

This tongue-in-cheek band from Brighton whose sound was individualised by use of sax, later developed a penchant for commercial novelty records.

Tom Hark (1980) was a revival of the delightful 1958 UK hit by Elias & The Zig Zag Jive Flutes (honestly!). It was actually South African kwela music, not ska.
