The Untouchables - Wild Child - 1985

In the mid-'80s in Southern California, the Untouchables almost single-handedly spearheaded the ska revival movement. Taking their cue from English bands like the English Beat and the Specials, the eight-piece Untouchables also brought in strains of Desmond Dekker, Bob Marley, the Skatalites and Madness into the mix, eventually landing themselves a deal with British label Stiff Records.  As a modern-day influence on bands like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, No Doubt and Sublime, this '80s artifact is strong testimony to the band's musical worth and true influence and subsequent longevity. -AMG
