“UTTELY BONKERS BUT IRRESITABLE” Manchester Evening News

“ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT” Musicians Magazine

Baked A La Ska are the "heavy heavy sound" of Manchester ska; an 11 piece band of assembled oddballs and pranksters brought together by keyboardist and wizard, Mr John Ellis.

Baked A La Ska are fronted by an un-holy trio of singers: Mr Frank "the Skank" (smooth Sinatra vocals), Tommy Robot (MC) and the soft lilt and harmonica magic of Robin Sunflower (vegan). Baked A La Ska feature one of the tightest rhythm sections in Manchester with the "chops to make you drop".

Their sound has already taken audiences and clubs across the region by storm inspiring late night parties and frenzied dancefloor action. It's a massive, uplifting and raucous mix of spooky originals with an unusual line in covers (each featuring potentially a worse pun than the last).

06/10/2009 Musicians Magazine

Absolutely brilliant covers in a totally ska idiom from the combined gifts of a 12-piece outfit, fronted by vocalists Tom Davies, David Knopov and Robin Sunflower. Hailing from Manchester and brought together by keys maestro Mr John Ellis, the band specialise in absorbing, radio-friendly, sure-fire winners, putting them through the ska machine and delivering a stream of apparently never-ending dancefloor hits. Samba Pa Ti is packed with all the prevailing elements: intro shouts, supreme harmonica, rhythm to die for and a real synthesis of great playing.

**** Manchester Evening News

The Odbod Collective includes the cream of Manchester musicians – John Ellis, Matt Owens, Kenji Fenton – but there’s no muso self-indulgence here. Expect instead irrepressible jollity as an eclectic bunch of songs get supercharged and skanked. Gary Numan's Cars now begins "Here in my ska" and the Bowie song is about “a Ska-man waiting in the sky”. Santana's Samba Pa Ti is virtually unrecognisable in the new heavy, heavy version. Utterly bonkers but irresistible. Future Odbod offerings might be more sensible and more couth but will they be as much fun?
