Ska-P is a Spanish ska punk band from the Vallecas district of Madrid. He was formed in 1994 around a group of friends including Pulpul and some of the current members like bassist Julio and keyboardist Kogote. The group is known for its open claims against political and social injustices, with revolutionary accents, denouncing among other things poverty, globalization, US imperialism, religion, political corruption, war, animal violence, racism , the Spanish monarchy or militant for the legalization of cannabis.
With ska punk as musical reference, the group combines both festive tunes and serious themes, always bearing a claiming aim with texts very oriented towards an anti-system and anti-globalization style. With a very dynamic stage presence, particularly worn by a number of costumes and disguises, the group became very popular with festivals and gained worldwide renown, with great success in Europe and Latin America.
The group has two breaks in its career, from 2005 to 2008, and from 2014 to 2018. The group announces its return in 2018 with a new album.
Ska-P was formed in 1994 around Pulpul, Yanclas, Julio, Kogote and Pako. After a few months of rehearsals, the band released 0.7, a self-produced debut album already self-produced and reissued a few years later by Sony. Despite this, the group is not successful; they play in small rooms for few people despite the songs Como a Rayo, hymn to the football club Rayo Vallecano and 0.7.
