Symarip was a ska and reggae band from the United Kingdom, originating in the late 1960s. The group had built their reputation as Prince Buster's backing band. They are widely marked as one of the first skinhead reggae bands. Symarip recorded one studio album under this synonym, Skinhead Moonstomp. This album includes their hits "Skinhead Girl", "Skinhead Jamboree", and "Skinhead Moonstomp". Singer and trombone player Roy Ellis was the man behind many of their classics. Yes, this still is the ultimate party album, with an excellent mixture of ska, reggae, and soul music.


Skinhead Moonstomp is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl.
