Leather Jacket Records and Ripper Records are proud to present The Best of The Instigators — Auckland Ska Punk 1981-1982. Instigators singles and live tracks remastered and back on vinyl for the first time in 40 years!

Instigators won Auckland’s Battle of the Bands in 1981 and released two seminal ska/punk singles on Ripper Records — Not Really Bad with producer Don McGlashan, and Hope She’s Alright with producer Steve Kennedy. Then they piled into a Bedford truck and toured all over NZ:

“In the cities we played to big crowds at rock venues where everyone was jumping up and down and connected with our anti-government message. The rural pubs were a different story, they didn’t want to hear our songs about real life, gang warfare, and a missing prostitute. In Blackball they tried to beat us up and chased us down the street!” — Sonya Waters
