The Hippos were a ska/punk band from Los Angeles, California. They were together primarily between 1995 and 2000. Before being discovered by fellow ska-punkers Less Than Jake, and releasing their first CD on the part LTJ owned Fueled By Ramen record label, The Hippos self released this 4 song demo tape.
Two of the tracks on this demo, "Get Away" & "The Boss", were also released on the very first, much sought after, Fueled By Ramen release..... a cassette tape of 4 bands (The Hippos, Boxcar, Shower With Goats, & Supermarket All-Stars) that came in a Chinese takeout box with stickers, a fortune cookie, and ramen recipes.
I hope you enjoy this gem. It had me skankin' around the kitchen for hours.
