Don’t miss out on this piece of City Gardens History! Small crowd, huge energy.
“Something I mentioned about 6-8 months ago has finally come out. POISON IDEA – “The Beast Goes East” – Poison Idea LIVE at City Gardens 1990. I think I’m the guy who did the cassette taping of them off the sound board – I loved Poison Idea – Not many people showed up, but I just had to book them and see them. Most of the Photos from this live album come from Ken Salerno (but not the cover picture) and Liner Notes on the back cover are from Tony Rettman. The LP is a Gatefold with a 20-Page Booklet and a Pretty Large Poster ! Not released in mass quantities so grab a copy NOW ! They’re in The Man Cave!”

Ska Boom! An Oral History About the Birth of American Ska & Reggae 1976-1991
by Marc Wasserman
Marc Wasserman is a true student of Ska and Reggae. His love for the culture and the music have led to a musical career that has lasted for decades,; from early outfits like “Panic !” (which eventually became “Bigger Thomas”) to recent incarnations, “Heavensbee” and also “Rude Boy George”. Marc is considered to be part of the very first Ska outfit from the state of New Jersey. Marc’s dedication and perseverance are evident in the pages he’s amassed thus far. Several chapters deep, and the narrative threads are being tied together in a most satisfying and interesting way. Marc has conducted over 125 interviews so far with artists like Mephiskapheles, Chuck Askerneese and Kevin Long of the Untouchables, The Boilers, Blue Riddim Band, The Hooters, and many more. For Marc, this book is a true labor of love and a testament to the indelible influence these early Ska outfits had on the culture.
