When I first listened to "Trouble Standing" years ago one thing came to mind, Sublime style music is back!! For good reason this album never leaves my rotation, kind of like 40oz to Freedom. The opening track "Dirty Girls" sets the tone for this excellent album with great lyrcis like "Looking forward to the aftermath when we can all legally buy pot". The state of California must have heard this song. Another tune that should be considered a classic even though its only 4 years old...
Bargain Music should be in everybody's catalog of music for the Reggae Rock scene. The Band incorporates anything from reggae, hip-hop, funk, or soul to heavy metal, punk, even country. They may not be together anymore but the lead singer Josh Fischel is still out there doing solo stuff and in my opinion may have one of the best voices out there.
Darth Vato may have been one of the most overlooked band in the Reggae Rock scene that broke up way too early. If you like what you hear buy their albums and maybe they will get the hint that they need to get back together.
