2012 London International Ska Fest Band Competition Results!

For the 2012 London International Ska Festival, the organizers decided to include a slot for a band that received the most votes from ska fans from around the globe. Well, the votes are in and all tallied up--and the winner of the 2012 LISF Band Competition is...

The Kinky Coo Coo's from Barcelona, Spain!

Rounding out the top five spots were...

2. Los Furious (Canada)
3. Jamaica 69 (Mexico)
4. Bigger Thomas (USA)
5) Monkey Boots (Indonesia)

While congratulations are due to all the bands, we'd like to make a special shout-out to NYC hometown heroes Bigger Thomas for snagging the #4 spot and being the only band from the USA in the top five!

Here's a taste of what you'll be missing in London this May...
