The Rude Awakening 2 (AWAKE 2/Vinyl) (1990)

'The Rude Awakening 2' is another of the Beechwood comps. This one is of the top new ska bands. Best trax are from Clubland, who approach reggae pretty nearly, and Hot Knives who approach Bad Manners, with their cockney ska derivation. More rootsy ska comes from Rackit Allstar Featuring Spider, and 'Rude Boy Dream' from Laurel Aitken - sobby vox, daft lyrics.
