Moon Ska Records
Easily one of the most influential Ska record labels of the 80's and 90's. Moon Ska was started by lead singer/guitar player, and only remaining original member of Ska band, The Toasters, Robert "Bucket" Hingley ; it was a strictly ska label for the duration of it's life from 1983 to 2000. Based in New York City, they operated a storefront in the East Village selling their wares, which was also unsuccessful. Amidst the bust of the Ska boom of the mid nineties, sales went down and too many records were returned to the small label for them to stay afloat.
Robert "Bucket" Hingley began yet another label sometime in 2003, Megalith Records , ostensibly to try his hand again at running an independent record label.
