Bursting with energy & highly infectious rhythms, their storming sound combines smooth reggae grooves with fast paced in-yer-face brassy 2 tone ska. Rasta4Eyes boast a strong DIY ethic & anti-establishment attitude." Strummercamp.co.uk... "Fighting out of the St Helen's corner, singer Billy McKelvie delivers food for thought lyrics on how the current economic climate is affecting today's youth just as much as everybody else and how the constant attitude of "we have been here before" from his generations elders just adds to the frustration and fears of himself and his peers. With a split album (Boss Sounds of the Boom & Bust) now available on Do The Dog records, and a host of nationwide gigs in the pipeline, 2009 looks like being a pivotal time for what we at Strummercamp consider to be one of the most promising young acts playing at this years festival." FungalPunkNature.com... "...the response is immediate and in truth, fuckin' magical - ‘Good Old Rock n Roll’ gushes talent and is one of those more slipstream numbers that is happy to go with its own flow and rely on its own self-borne talent found therein." Punktastic.com... "It’s a solid four songs that prove both playful and clever. Focus on growing weed and drug dealers sits alongside the ongoing problems with unemployment." SkaMonkey.com... "Rasta4eyes bounce in for the first round with ‘Oscar & Arthur’, I love this bouncy skanking feel that they capture with this track with excellent vocals and solid brass section."
