Arthur Kay's original recording band The Originals comprised of:

  • Eddie Maitland Keyboards 
  • Arthur Kay Bass and vocals
  • Terry Cutting Drums
  • Paul Mlynarz Sax
  • Perry White Keyboards
  • Bob Coltart Guitar & vocals.

 

Arthur and his band are one of the remaining 70's 80's ska bands to still be actively gigging albeit with personnel changes. Arthurs first single 'Ska Wars' (Red Admiral Records) with its rare sought out Scooter cover, has been on dozens of compilations throughout the world. The name "Ska Wars" also being chosen for a muti-CD package presenting the best of the Ska Bands. Expect to find a track on the new CD by legend - Judge Dread who sadly passed away on stage in Canterbury's Old Penny Theatre. Athur Kays Originals were one of the Judges favourite backing bands and were working with him that night.Arthur has been assisted by Brian Gould with re-mastering and Steve Wise the graphics, both are old friends from even Arthurs pre-ska days.

On the 5th December2001 a new record label was created by Arthur Kay the ska star, it is called Skavalon Records, The label's 1st release was issued early in 2002. I t is called 'Arthur Kay & Tthe Originals' but includes some previously unreleased tracks.

Chris Ashman of Red Admiral Records and Lol of MoonSka Europe have been consulted and after a sticky start, wish Arthur well with the project.
