I'm thrilled about Brandon Smith's Utah Ska documentary, "The Upbeat" because it has so much do with my favorite music and even a little bit of my own personal history. It's centered around Utah's upcoming The Upstarts and the history of the Utah ska scene. It features interviews from The Slackers, Toots Hibbert, Bucket from the Toasters and Buster Bloodvesssel. Also, Utah ska legends, Swim Herschel Swim and Stretch Armstrong to name just a few...oh and then...GOGO13? I laugh. Many of the photos contributed are taken from my old pals; ska promoter, Racquel and her ex-Boyfriend Dustin "Skip" Blad of the early GOGO13 incarnation. I find it hilarious to see pictures of my younger brother in our teenage bedroom in the same documentary with likes of Toots and old fatty himself! HAHAHA! Tyler also had some involvement and is accredited with associate producer status! Way to go everybody!
Support The UP BEAT!!
