exclusively on lessthanjake.com. Fans of the band can watch the video
and indulge in a short but sweet recap of one of ska-punk’s greatest
The video contains audio and video from the band’s first 20 years
together, ranging from the group’s early days to recent festival
appearances in Europe. Trombonist Buddy Schaub assembled the video,
with content pulled from hundreds of hours of archived footage. From
seeing lead singers Chris DeMakes and Roger Manganelli play small
stages in the late 1990s with bad haircuts...to watching saxophonist
Peter “J.R.” Wasilewski and drummer Vinnie Fiorello on stage at large
festivals in the late 2010s with worse haircuts, fans will enjoy the
audio-visual trip through LTJ’s career.
