Best ska band of all time. The NYC Ska Pioneers. I have interviewed Buck (the lead singer) and he is a legend.

generally thought of as the first/longest running ska band in the U.S

it is possible that the name originates from the term "toasting" which means to talk or chant over a rhythm or beat and is sometimes used in ska and other african/jamaican music. it could also come from the old slang for gun, OR the literal kitchen appliance.

store guy: uh, we dont sell kitchen appliences.
me: no, not A toaster. THE toasters.

me: yeah.
