We holed up in our favorite studio (Sneak Attack) over the weekend, and laid down tracks for our upcoming album. Despite all of the dicking around with keyboards and theremins (evidence below) we got five whole songs done. And, holy guacamole, do they sound sweet!
So, get ready for a soon-to-be single to hit the airwaves, Ruffians!

We have entered the modern age! Fourty-two minutes of ska bliss. Follow us now!
We finally found her! Our new singer, that is.
Earlier this week we finally revealed our new lead vocalist, Andrea Moffett. Not only does she have a great voice, and tons of past experience with other great bands, she's also oddly at ease around us bunch of doofuses! Doofi? Doofus pluralized!
Anyway, Andrea has been lurking in the shadows, getting up to speed and writing some amazing new material with us for the last couple of months. And, we couldn't be more excited for people to hear these new tunes. Which is why we have Andrea's debut performance lined up for December 17th, at The Green Lantern! Check out our shows section for all the details of the debut show, as well as a couple of other sweet upcoming gigs.
Can't wait to get back at it! See you crazy kids out there!
We're sad that we didn't get to celebrate our favorite holiday on-stage with silly costumes this year. But, fear not, ye fine ladies and fellows! Great things are just around the corner!
We have gathered all the right ingredients - slime, snails, and puppy dog tales (We would never maim a puppy!) - to brew up our own dastardly concoctions in order to appease your appetites for ska sustenance! <--- Like a collection of run-on-sentence tongue twisters! And, new music! And, new merch!
As always, keep them peepers peepin', because actual legitimate announcements are hiding in the shadows!
We're a little behind, but here we go!
Big thanks to all the fans that made it out to our last few shows. Playing at Lynagh's for the first time was awesome and they were such a welcoming venue. (O'rounds 4 lyfe.) Our second year playing Cirque de Virgo was every bit as great as the first. Oh, and did we mention how awesome opening for The Toasters was?! We are so grateful to Last of the Dodo and The Green Lantern for having us out. Best night ever. We were all sore for a week.
On a sadder note, our singer Alex sang with us for the last time at our show with The Toasters. She gave us two great years of performances, near and far. Not to mention contributing to the creation of some of our favorite material to date. She will certainly be missed!
But, don't you worry your pretty, little, two-tone-loving heads. The Rough Customers ain't done yet! We have been in the throes of auditioning some extremely talented singers over the last month. So stay tuned!
Looking forward to our next dance, Lexington!
- Your friendly neighborhood ska band.
Check out the video our friend, Chuck Johnson, captured at our last show. A special duet, featuring Abby Helton, from Jocky Onassis! Wowza! That's a lot of names!
We have a great many summer events in the works, so keep them peepers peeping. We also have MORE new music in the works!
See you all out on those sticky, sweaty, skankin' grounds!
Stream it or download it and take it on the go!
We we have several show announcements coming out this week, so stay tuned for those. Also, our recording is done on a brand new EP that we will soon offer digitally! It shouldn't be long now before it is all mixed and ready to go. Plus, we have a couple of other tricks up our sleeves. See you soon!
We're back at it after a slow holiday season, and we've got a lot of exciting things in the works. First of all, you should check us out at Best Friend Bar on Friday, January 20th with some other great locals that are new to the scene. It's going to be a killer show.
Some other things to look forward to are new songs (both live and recorded), the return of some of our very talented "friend bands" that we have hosted in the past, and some more of our personal brand of silly antics. So, stay tuned!
See you all out on the skankin' grounds!
