Red Five Point Star

Artist

Red Five Point Star (abbreviated to RFPS), a Slovenian ska-rock band from Trbovlje, was formed in 1998 by cousins Uroš and Jernej Grahek. Initially a punk rock trio, the collective soon started adding elements of ska, surf rock and other genres to their music – which the artists call ‘dirty ska’ – and evolved into a sextet. In 2005, after years of playing clubs and festivals and contributing to compilations, RFPS released their debut album, “In Color”, and started touring abroad (Germany, France, Italy, the Balkan states). Over this period, the band featured as supporting act for some of the world’s most prominent ska bands, including The Toasters, Fishbone, etc. RFPS released their second album, “Stepping Out”, in 2007 and in early 2009 went on a one-month tour of the Republic of South Africa. They caught the eye of Robert “Bucket” Hingley, The Toasters frontman and owner of the famous Megalith Records, who invited RFPS to do a European tour with The Toasters after their return from South Africa. “Worst Case Scenario” came out in 2011 on Megalith Records, followed by a joint tour of the East-Coast USA to mark The Toasters’ 30th anniversary. RFPS celebrated their 20th anniversary with a tour of Europe.
