The Slackers - Rude & Reckless

"America's premiere interpreters of Jamaican music", The Slackers are most emphatically back with this, their 15th album! Never failing to set new standards as they twist and turn their way through a Jamaican musical history lesson, the NYC kings of reinvention have somehow managed to top last years superb 'Boss Harmony Sessions' album (RRHITCD1). The brand new 'Self Medication' brings you a collection of beautifully crafted songs, in the tradition of the great American story tellers.
The Slackers have headlined 16 major US Tours and 13 European tours. They have appeared on the Warped Tour, Lowlands Festival, Pukkelpop, CMJ, Montreal Jazz Festival, Deconstruction Tour, Popkomm, Summerjam and many other major world festivals. They have toured with Rancid, Joe Strummer, Floggin Molly, Jimmy Cliff, Pennywise, Toots & the Maytals, The Pogues and John Spencer’s Heavy Traffic creating a huge following in the process.
