Commenting on the new video, vocalist Jon Pebsworth says, “This video is a collection of footage we gathered over the last couple years. There is live footage from several different shows and lots of backstage and on the road shenanigans! The video shows us doing what we love the most, playing music and hanging out together. It suits the lyrics and vibe of the song. It’s about going thru tuff times in life and finally deciding to make a change back to a more positive vibe. It’s a pep talk song!”

BUCK-O-NINE will be featured in the upcoming documentary “Pick It Up! – Ska In The 90’s,” which chronicles the rise and fall of the third wave of ska music that hit America in the 1990s and became an underground sensation that is still thriving today. The film will premiere at The Newport Beach Film Festival on April 26th. More information can be found athttps://newportbeachfilmfest.com/event/pick-it-up-ska-in-the-90s/.
Formed nearly 3 decades ago in San Diego, BUCK-O-NINE were an integral part in the early 90’s ska scene, who shared the stages with acts like The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and The Specials among others and helped spark a global ska phenomenon. Over the years the band released 5 albums, had songs featured in movies and television and enjoyed the success of multiple singles.
Following the release of 2007’s Sustain, BUCK-O-NINE consistently performed live to fans both old and new in Western states, and has now regrouped for an introspective and infectious new record that shows they’ve still got it!. The band’s sixth full-length, FunDayMental, sees them once again combining elements of reggae, rocksteady, rock and punk into a unique amalgam of music that the act has pioneered since 1991. Amazingly, their lineup also features six out of seven founding members and their “newest” musician, bassist Andy Platfoot, has been in the band for 19 years. That sort of history makes BUCK-O-NINE less of a band than they are a family and that dynamic is evident on all 14 songs on FunDayMental, which includes the band’s new material alongside reworked versions of fan favorites “My Town” and “Irish Drinking Song.”
“The album is about life, love and unity. It’s a reflection of our lives and struggles in this crazy beautiful world.” – – Jon Pebsworth (vocals)
