Formed in 1992, “San Diego’s mutated ska collective” Unsteady hasn’t seen the light in years, but they were one brassy blast back in the day, invoking “bordertown radio-to-jump” to move your shoes. They reunited to play several live shows in summer 2010.

2017 saw the release of a split single featuring Unsteady’s song "Liar" and a new Manganista track, "Mr. Who," pressed on randomly colored vinyl to make every record unique.
