The London Intl Ska Festival presents
4 scorching new exclusive singles – on 2 ltd.edition 7″ vinyl records.

LISF7-1 – Disc One –
NEOL DAVIES – DOLLA FE DOLLA vs
THE DUALERS – NOTHING TAKES THE PLACE OF YOU


One of 2 Tone Records greatest musicians, songwriters and founder of The Selecter, Neol Davies returns with a superb new single ‘Dolla Fe Dolla’ exclusively for The London Intl Ska Festival 2012. The man who wrote ‘3 Minute Hero’, ‘Missing Words’, ‘Celebrate The Bullet’, ‘On My Radio’ & the track that started it all, the AAside to The Specials-Gangsters, The Selecter, plays Day 4 of The London Intl Festival (6 May – O2 Academy Islington) along with Fishbone, The Skints, Don Letts and many more.

The flipside features one of the UK’s most loved Ska acts – The Dualers and is taken from their upcoming Prince Buster Shakedown album, a tribute to the undisputed King of Ska. The Dualers headline day 3 of the festival at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 5 May, along with Ska Cubano, Freddie Notes (Jamaica reggae pioneer famed for his Montego Bay smash hit), Buster Shuffle and more.

LISF7-2 – Disc Two –
PHOENIX CITY ALL-STARS ft. DAVE BARKER
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
vs PHOENIX CITY ALL-STARS – The Selecter


Phoenix City All-stars are the brainchild of Pama Intl’s Sean Flowerdew. They will be backing Dandy Livingstone on his world exclusive comeback show at day 2 of The London Intl Ska Festival (4 May at O2 Academy Islington) as well as Rico Rodriguez and the voice of Dave & Ansell Collins – Mr. Dave Barker. Drawing inspiration from Studio One & The Skatalites Phoenix City All-stars entered the studio to record this exclusive blazin Ska version of Carol King’s Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow featuring reggae legend Dave Barker on vocals, especially for the ska fest.

They have also recorded their debut album (out this summer) – ‘2 Tone Gone Ska’.. an unbeatable & unique repatriation of 2 Tones greatest hits to “the Sounds of Young Jamica”. The flipside on LISF7-2 is taken from this very album.

Catch The Phoenix City all-stars this summer at select shows (Vintage festival, One Love festival, Notting Hill Carnival, Isle of Wight scooter rally & Ronny Scotts).
