Editorial Reviews

The Mad Caddies stand alone in their latest musical achievement. Combining elements of rock and roots reggae atop a punk rock ethos, Keep It Going takes the listener on a musical journey from lively Jamaican dancehalls to the punk clubs of America. Keep It Going, the band's 5th full length, will certainly prove to be the definitive album of their successful career. Grammy award winning producer, Wayne Jobson (No Doubt, Gregory Isaacs, Toots & The Maytals), was brought on to help produce the album, with reggae legend Duckie Simpson (Black Uhuru) joining in to sing on a cover of Delroy Wilson's reggae classic "Riding For a Fall". With the album heavily rooted in reggae, The Mad Caddies don't turn a blind eye to their wide array of other influences, showing further development of their south-of-the-boarder sound on "Coyote", followed by a tip of the hat to Dixeland on "Tired Bones". The band has already begun their pre-release assault on the US, embarking on a two month US tour in support of Pepper. They will continue their global romp hitting Europe in the Spring and from there will trek to all corners of the planet in their never ending quest to deliver their unique brand of reggae-punk-dixieland-country-ska to the masses.

Hard to follow up the album "Just One More" and how could anyone not LOVE "Drinking For 11" This AMAZING Album shows just how diverse these guys are! Excellent vocals melded with the boys skills on all that they play. This album is superb and I highly recommend it! Every song is done to the highest standard. If you have not seen this band live you NEED TO GO! You will not regret it!

This album is great. I listen to it in the car like every day. When I purchased this album I wanted to listen to it right away, but the best part is that it included free digital copies on the cloud player so I did not have to wait to jam out. Shipping was pretty quick for the free shipping, but the free digital copy was an excellent plus. I highly recommend this album and everything was shipped quick and undamaged.

These guys keep getting better and better. Each album seems to have them growing musically and lyrically. Fun lyrics on a great Reggae/Ska Beat. If you always thought the Mad Caddies as a middle of the road band with occasional strokes of brilliance, try this album out, more genius here than ever before

This is a great ska/reggae album. The Mad Caddies really embody the sash worn by the man on the cover. New Orleans style hornplay and gritty (at times) vocals are highlighted throughout the tracks. Also, they've done a great job of blending a not insignificant amount of rock with their ska. The Mad Caddies' sound seems to have become much more focused in the leap from "Just One More" to "Keep it Going." For some, the sound could be a little too focused as "Keep it Going" is not as eclectic (one of the band's hallmarks) as previous albums. Overall, however, I stand by my five-star rating. Keep ska alive!

For a band that's been around as long as they have (since 1995), they've sure managed to fly well beneath my musical radar. How this is possible, I'm not really sure. When the disc arrived, my first thought was, "Hmmm... oh yeah, that's that band... that I never listened to. I sure hope this doesn't suck..." Well never fear, cuz you'll be hard pressed to find anything that sucks about Keep it Going (or Mad Caddies, for that matter). I'm going to assume I'm mostly addressing fans of this genre here, cuz I doubt someone's suddenly gonna be won over as a ska fan by a single album review. But I can assure you, if you're already a Caddies fan or think you might be inclined to try it on for size, I can think of no better place to start than with Keep it Going. Really great stuff that reminds me of a mash-up between the best parts of Mustard Plug and Cherry Poppin' Daddies. Energetic when appropriate, yet mellow and groovy also. Long story short, I was impressed enough to go out and buy a couple other of their albums: it's been a long time since a band got me that hooked. Go pick this one up, you won't regret it!

I first heard of Mad Caddies when they opened for Pepper at a show I went to. Other than an Ep, this is the only work I've ever heard from them. So, I cant compare it to their other albums, I can only give it an unbiased first time listener review.

This album is plain, flat-out, a ska/reggae/punk masterpiece. From the opening track "The Dirge," you know you're in for something different, and awesome. The next two tracks, "Backyard" and "State of Mind" are just brilliant reggae songs. Just suburb songs anyway you listen to them.

The album flows together seamlessly, and the production value is amazing (and it's going to be when you've got Wayne Jobson for a producer.) Anybody who is a fan of reggae, ska, or punk will like this album. Keep it Going is a necessary album in my collection, the songs are great individually, and as a whole, it's a fantastic album. If you haven't already, get this album, you'll be glad you did.

Wow, what an excellent album. Closer in sound to Just One More than any other, this mostly slow album is great fun and it's 2 fastish songs are totally rad. Lazy Bones rivals Leavin' as a geeat catchy tune and the quite slow but upbeat 'Today' will stick in your mind as you sit through your day at work, waiting to get home for another listen!

Generally I prefer the fasetr Caddies songs, but the slower ones here are fantastic too, perhaps better than their previous stuff!
