We got together to play music, dress up, and have fun,” according  to Emily Jayne and Eric Din, members of the Bay Area’s preeminent  ska band, The Uptones.  “We had some songs that weren’t ska, and  wanted to perform them live.”  So Emily and Eric recruited Eric  Knight, the former Engine 88 bass player and Pete D’Amato, drummer with The Agent Deadlies. The Fashion Slaves were created in 2011.  Along with legendary Beserkley Records founder Matthew King Kaufman and Grammy winning producer/engineer, Michael Rosen, they have have teamed up to record a live CD titled “Check Out The Fashion  Slaves,” on Fun Fun Fun Recordings.  The recording includes originals like “Suffer For Fashion” and “Loud Mouth Girl” along with their version of The Uptones’ song “Going Down.”

“After playing solo for most of my career, it’s truly been amazing  working with such great musicians. This new combo gives more juice  to my original material, and frees me up to perform more on stage,”  says Emily Jayne.
