English-born Mark Foggo began his music career in Amsterdam in 1979, he had discovered ska music through the popularity of 2-Tone bands such as The Specials and The Beat, inspiring him to start his own punk/ska band, The Secret Meeting. After independently releasing a single entitled 'New Shoes', the band was promptly signed to Polydor Records in 1980 for the full length 'Speeding My Life Away'.

Foggo’s passion for ska eventually grew larger until he omitted the punk / new wave songs entirely, focusing exclusively on ska for his first solo album, 1983’s 'A State of Mind'. He formed his most notable band, Mark Foggo’s Skasters, in 1987, and their 1989 debut, 'Ska Pig', was a huge international success, often cited as a classic of the ska genre. Foggo founded his own label Skanky’ Lil in 1990 to release his own music, which he describes as “modern, bizarre, non-influenced, up tempo ska”, and is characterized by his observational and darkly comic lyricism, as well as his manic and boisterous stage personality.
