Overview

Things were brewing in the late 80's in 3 key areas of the world, Newcastle Australia, Boston, and
Orange County USA. It was the sound of ska-punk, a fusion of high energy punk rock with the
syncopated beats of Jamaica, and The Porkers were there leading the charge alongside the likes of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, No Doubt, and many others.

Starting in 1987 in a lounge room in Bar Beach, The Porkers released their debut single in 1990
'Earthquakin', which climbed to almost the top of the Aussie indie charts and was then followed by
their debut album 'Grunt!' in 1994. It was hailed as "a masterpiece of ska brilliance", but it was a lot more than that: it was skanking rhythms mixed with punchy punk choruses, some funk and reggae, some Aussie pub rock and a distinctive Novocastrian sense of humour.

The album soon gained the attention of New York label Moonska Records which licensed the
album, as well as their 1998 follow up "Hot Dog Daiquiri".
