“The Talks Their buoyant, reggae-tinged ska is completed with a superb keyboardist who brings everything together. We're by the door, barely able to get in but people squeezing in and out, smiles on their faces. “He’s absolutely brilliant” says one bloke. Another lady cups her hand over my ear and delights in the fact that she “can’t believe that ska music is this popular and this good. It was my life, 30 years ago!” There's a really warm, upbeat atmosphere in The Good Mixer and it feels very much like this is the right place to be. The packed in crowd are completely with them and squashed up next to the microphones. It's raucous and loud and a couple of the mics are knocked over during the gig, the bassist is crashed into, without a break in the performance. By the end of the 40 minute set, the room is sweaty, exhausted and delighted. It’s really great stuff and they're massively recommended.”
