Gangsters is an Irish band with a passion for ska music. Their album A New beginning is a collection of original ska tunes (all written by lead vocalist Patrick Colton) and they make a fresh impression. Their sound reverts to the outings of bands such as Madness and The Specials. The themes go from love, homeless people, the rude bwoy, injustice and Al Capone. If you're into ska music go to your record shop and check this one out.
