The band formed when guitarist and vocalist Richard Puxty moved into a Carrington housenext door to trombonist Andrew Wallace.

“We just decided to start a band and Anthony Dean had been suggesting to me for a while to start another ska band,” Puxty said.

Puxty was an original member of The Porkers.

“It was the right time to do another project and within a short period of time we had a set,” he said.

Puxty is the main songwriter, although drummer Anthony Dean has penned one tune, My Girlfriend is a Beer.

“We have two kinds of songs, one about beer and one about girls,” Puxty said.

“Anthony in his wisdom combined both themes.”

A Pornskas’ set will feature some of the band’s classic material such as The Solution to Your Problem is Between My Legs.

“That song is self explanatory,” Puxty said.

Puxty said the inspiration for the band’s material was all around him.

“I just have to go outside to draw on what I see for the songs,” he said.

The Chicken Wingis a song based on one of Puxty’s original dance moves, but is also a rugby league manoeuvrewhich the songwriter claims to have introduced into the code.

“It’s a nice tune, a lot of the songs have good melodies and are easy to dance to,” Puxty said.

“That’s the whole motive behind the band, to have good fun, bouncy music.

“We are not ska fundamentalists in any form but most of our songs have an off-beat rhythm.”

In a bit of a new direction the Pornskas have recently introduced some funk numbers as well.

At any Pornskas gig the band will begin the show with their audience march through, which sees the entire band move through the audience with the horn section playing.

“It heralds the performance, lets people know we are about to perform, and sometimes we end with the march of the Pornskas as the finale,” Puxty said.

The current line-up seesPuxty, Wallace and Dean, joined by bass player TonyCollins and saxophonist Kim Pink, performingabout 20 shows each year.

The band released its first EP The March of the Pornskas,featuring Amanda Roff on bass and Carmen Delprat on Saxaphone, in 2002.A decade later came the full-length album Surf Horn.

A third album featuring rare previously unreleased material is imminent.
