The group's first LP for Taang! was the 1989 Devil's Night Out LP, and we went with the title cut for the blog. The song is reasonably representative of the group's early sound, which is to say a bit all over the place (but mostly in a good way).
As with many innovative acts, the Bostones built a solid following, but did not achieve huge commercial success, although their 1997 song, "The Impression That I Get" did pick up a bunch of airplay. However, the Bosstones are viewed as one of the creators of ska-core and their music laid the groundwork for bands such as No Doubt.
While interest in ska and ska punk waned since the late 1990's, the Bosstones have continued to record and play (with a few hiatuses) to the present day.
Cool trivia fact: Dicky Barrett has been the announcer for Jimmy Kimmel Live! since 2004.
