The first release under the name And the Wasters, the 'State of Repair' EP combines a Folk-Punk-Ska sound with elements of Latin, Dub & Jazz in a conscious and empowering message. Pay-as-you-feel download.

2016 saw the band change name and take on a new lineup to play main stages at UK festivals such as Bearded Theory and Boomtown Fair, complete an extensive tour of Europe and bring global influences into their sound with their instrumental diversity of accordion, trumpet and violin.

Lyrically, the EP reflects on a sense of sadness, anxiety and uncertainty faced in the modern world, while also promoting an empowering message of solidarity, DIY culture and collective action in their rowdy Punk sound and spirit.


released March 12, 2017

Recorded in 2016 across at Music Ape studios & Worse than Bad studio. Mixed and mastered by Matt Martin at Made of Ale (Pumpkin Records). Overdubs on 'Intro Dub' by Ian Upsettah.

And the Wasters are: Dan Kemp, Ivo Johansen, Jared Dyer, Celeste Cantor-Stephens, Jo Dobraszczyk, Danny Epstein & Jack Kitchen.
