Hey, open your mind and your ears! This is NOT just another ska
band. Stretsch's music has jazz, ska, and punk influences which should
entertain any listener. Although the music sounds upbeat, listen to
the lyrics and you'll find a deeper message.
"Gladly Pay You Tuesday" sends the message about people who use you
and abuse you and never pay you back. "Sue Happy" comments on the
amount of law suits today. So if you're looking for a message, their
songs aren't inane. Some songs that you'll definitely want to check
out are "Drool" and "Jailbreak," which are in heavy rotation on local
radio stations. My former law professor (who happens to be a parent
to one of the members of the band) recommends "Scratch the Ear."
