Product Description

The debut album from the Southampton five-piece is eleven songs of scorching ska-rock that is as powerful as it is melodic. Essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Can I Say.....OTHER THAN 2 Jun 2003
THIS, is one of the best albums ive heard in a long time!! If you buy this album you will not be able to stop listening too it!! its pure class!! Howards Alias are in the top Ska-Core Post Ska-core, what ever the hell you wanna call them, bands around at the moment, and at this point in time thats a pretty mean feet as there are so many brilliant acts!! if you like this try No-Complys 'Your Life Is Your Direction' (brilliant ska-core with well lead female vocals) & Adequate7's 'Songs Of Innocence & Of Experience' (funk laced ska-core) its all good; just keep the skankin alive...HaHaHaHa

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut from this new Ska Core band 19 April 2003
It took its time to get to my hands, but it was defininetely worth it, with 11 hardcore ska songs on this album it is a must buy. It is by far my fave ska album by a long way. None of the songs are poppy at all, and all of them are original and skanky. howards alias are amazing live as well. Check this band out, coz they are seriously talented!!

5.0 out of 5 stars UK Ska now has a lot to live up to... 26 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Brilliance. Pure brilliance. Within 30 seconds of the CD you know you've found something special. Kicking off with 'Rob Wants You Dead', somewhat of an anthem amongst local Alias fans, this album straught away grabs hold of you and makes you listen.
As a band, they are one of the tightest around. As musicians, each of them is extremely talented, and as song-writers they are unrivalled in the UK Ska scene.
The entire album is hard hitting, intelligent, and flawlessly produced. Every track deserves to be there, and you'll find yourself going back to them time and time again. Particular tracks to look out for are the outstanding 'Head-Up', which is everything decent Ska-Core should be, and my personal favourite, 'One to One', which as well as having one of the best brass parts I've heard, seems to be an album in itself.
I highly recommend this album. If you've never heard them before and like your ska, it's well worth the risk. If you have heard them before, then no doubt you would own the album already.
Believe me when I say, once you own this album, you'll wonder how you ever got by without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reel Big Fish can shove it... 4 Aug 2003
By Sean
Ska-punk gets a lot of stick from rock fans, mainly because the general image of ska-punk is ala the aforementioned Reel Big Fish, chirpy, re-hashing 80's songs in a 'wacky' style. Because of this, the more creative ska-punkers have suffered. Capdown's angry polemic is still in the toilet venues, Farse are criminally ignored, and Howards Alias are practically unheard of except with the more hardcore of ska-punk fans.
To compare this to Reel Big Fish would be undescribably stupid. Howards Alias are probably the most inventive ska-punk band in the UK at the moment, with a dark twisted edge to them hidden below the brass section, as is given away in the song titles (a song titled 'The Anti-Life' is hardly going to be joyful lyrically, is it?). I definitely suggest to any people who still doubt to go and see this band live and be amazed.
This is truly unmissable.
