Symarip evolved from the UK ska band the Pyramids, who had recorded with the then leader of the Equals, Eddy Grant. The group formed in 1969, comprising Monty Naismith, Ray Ellis, Michael Thomas, Joshua Roberts and Frank Pitter. On the track GÇÿSkinhead JamboreeGÇÖ, they called for less conflict and documented the essential gear for a GÇÿbovver boyGÇÖ. The success of GÇÿSkinhead MoonstompGÇÖ led to the release in 1970 of an album of the same name, including versions of Roland AlphonsoGÇÖs GÇÿPhoenix CityGÇÖ as GÇÿPhoenix ReggaeGÇÖ, Nancy SinatraGÇÖs GÇÿThese Boots Are Made For WalkingGÇÖ, GÇÿFung ShuGÇÖ and GÇÿSkinhead GirlGÇÖ. The single was re-pressed in response to the interest engendered in the skinhead era during the 2-Tone craze.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
