The Resignators
The Resignators
A Psychoska band from Melbourne, Australia.

When The Resignators were formed by Captain Focus in 2005, nobody foresaw that the band would still be touring the world in 2012. Despite numerous members coming and going (it is a ska band after all), The Resignators have never stopped, and today they boast their strongest line-up ever.

Now a seven-piece with lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums, organ, trumpet and trombone, The Resignators have a big sound that demands attention and beckons all to skank and mosh their way to the front of the stage.

After many tours at home in Australia and abroad in the USA and Canada, The Resignators will be embarking June, July and August on their 2nd tour of the USA, 4th tour of Canada, and 2nd tour of Europe in a big way to promote the release of their most recent EP "Down in Flames", produced by Craig Harnath and guitarist Steve Douglas and mixed by Jez Giddings at Hothouse Audio in St. Kilda, Melbourne, and mastered by Jack the Bear.

March and April 2013 will be a national Australian tour with the boys from Jobstopper, from Adelaide to Cairns!
Chris Murray
Chris Murray
Chris Murray is a unique force on today's music scene. As leader of influential Canadian ska group King Apparatus, Chris earned a strong reputation as a dynamic performer and gifted songwriter. Upon the band's breakup, he relocated to Los Angeles, emerging as a solo artist with his debut album The 4-Track Adventures Of Venice Shoreline Chris. This charmingly lo-fi collection of home recordings won high praise for its finely crafted tunes and the raw sincerity of its vintage production.
In addition to his busy schedule of live appearances throughout North America, Japan, Europe and South America, Chris finds time for a remarkable array of collaborative efforts. Chris has co-written with and produced albums for Montreal's Planet Smashers and eclectic NYC supergroup Da Whole Thing. His writing credits have also appeared on releases by Hepcat, The Slackers, Westbound Train, and Neville Staple of The Specials. Most recently, his classic song We Do The Ska was covered by highly popular UK group The King Blues.
Life has led Chris down a musical path to the very roots of reggae music. From trading songs on acoustic guitar with boogie-ska pioneer Laurel Aitken and singing with Caribbean bandleader Carlos Malcolm & His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms, to jamming with The Specials in a basement club and recording with Jamaica's original drums and bass masters, Lloyd Knibb and Lloyd Brevett, Chris has served his apprenticeship with the finest musicians connected with the genre. Chris backed Prince Buster on harmonica for a rare US live appearance at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in 2003.
Chris has hosted Bluebeat Lounge at Hollywood's Knitting Factory for the past seven years. The weekly concert series, focusing on reggae and ska, has showcased a diverse range of top quality music and served as home base for the thriving Los Angeles scene.
