REDSKA is an Italian ska punk band formed in 2001 in Romagna, Italy. In 2004 they released their first official album Mi son sbagliato nel confondermi ("I was mistaken while confusing myself") (Sana Records / Audioglobe), a blend of ska-punk with strong influences of Californian ska, mixed with reggae, raggamuffin, swing, blues, hardcore and rocksteady sounds. There were guest appearances from The Hormonauts and Enri. In 2007 the album has got re-released in an updated version, including a few live performances and video-clip with One Step Records, independent label, founded by the band's singer. By support of their audience, independent radio and other underground Italian bands, allowed the album to be quite successful in Europe. After this release the band has an increasingly busy tour schedule all around Italy and the first experiences in Continental Europe. In 2008 the RedSka issued their second album, Le mie prigioni ("My prisons") on One Step Records / Maninalto! / Venus; and One Step Records / Mad Butcher Records in Germany), a rougher and more aggressive work both in sound and lyrics. The album housed collaborations with Banda Bassotti, Matrioska, Los Fastidios, and The Good Fellas. The lyrics, save for a few songs are centered mainly on politics, religion, work and against wars and racial discrimination stressing more firmly the band's social commitment. The band embarked on a long tour, with many gigs in Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France and Czech Republic aside the usual Italian venues.
