Symarip was a ska and reggae band from the United Kingdom in the late 1960s. The group had built their reputation as Prince Buster’s backing band. They are widely marked as one of the first skinhead reggae bands. Symarip recorded only one studio album; Skinhead Moonstomp. An instant classic and it includes fan favourites like “Skinhead Girl”, “Skinhead Jamboree”, and the title track – later covered by The Specials.. Singer and trombone player Roy Ellis was the man behind many of their classics. This is an excellent mixture of ska, reggae, and soul music.
Skinhead Moonstomp is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on smokey coloured vinyl.
