The Slackers : Red Light 1997


The Slackers are a New York City band , formed in Brooklyn in 1991 . The band's sound is a mix of ska , rocksteady , reggae , dub , soul , garage rock , and jazz . The Slackers' notability is credited to their prolific career , tours of North America , Europe , and elsewhere , and signing to notable punk label Hellcat Records .

Redlight is an album by The Slackers , released on September 23 , 1997 (see 1997 in music) on Hellcat Records .



It solidified the Slacker's sound , with ska , reggae , and dub remaining prevalent . The track "Watch This" received airplay on college radio stations . The band's lineup was finally solidified (confused by the inclusivness of band photos in Better Late Than Never) . Now the Slackers brought in Glen Pine from Boston on Trombone . Jeremy Mushlin also debuted his vocal talents for the first time on Redlight , although it wouldn't be until The Question that he would exhibit his DJ style that he is known for .
