Voodoo Glow Skulls - Baile de los Locos

Voodoo Glow Skulls are an American third-wave ska-punk band formed in 1988 in Riverside, California by brothers Frank, Eddie and Jorge Casillas and their longtime friend Jerry O'Neill. Voodoo Glow Skulls first played out at backyard parties and later at Spanky's Café, where they played shows with the Angry Samoans, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Firehose, Murphy's Law and The Dickies. In 1990 VGS put out their first EP with the help of local band Public Humiliation and also booked their own DIY US tour.
In 1991, the band added a horn section, consisting of Joey Hernandez on saxophone, Joe McNally on trumpet and Brodie Johnson on trombone. The band's first independent release came out in 1992 with the "Rasta Mis Huevos" 7" EP for Signal Sound Systems Records, and performed as headliners and support act for The Offspring, No Doubt, Reverend Horton Heat, and 311. Voodoo Glow Skulls recorded their debut album Who Is, This Is? for Dr. Strange Records in 1993, selling 200,000 copies worldwide. The band then signed to Epitaph Records and released four albums that collectively sold over 750,000 copies worldwide. Voodoo Glow Skulls soon began receiving positive critical reviews and the mainstream support of commercial radio and MTV. Eventually they had main stage spot on the 1998 Warped Tour. In 2001 VGS left Epitaph records and signed to Victory records. The band has released 3 albums on victory and continue to tour.....
