Released back in 2004 it features an all-star cast with members from The Loafers, Special Beat, Steel Pulse, Galliano, Pop Will Eat Itself, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Style Council, Big Boss Man and UK skasters Intensified and Topcats.
It has become something of a cult album in the UK and picked up airplay all over the world, including David Rodigan on Kiss100, Mike Davies on Radio One and xfm.
The album is crammed full of eclectic sounds. Old school meets new in this soundclash of 60's ska, northern soul, lovers rock, rocksteady, and even a hidden Sly & The Family Stone track.
Astonishing debut album.

El disco que más nos ha gustado de una banda de ska-rocksteady británica en mucho tiempo. Pama International es el grupo del cantante Finny y el teclista Sean Flowerdew, ambos ex-miembros del grupo The Loafers o Special Beat. A nivel compositivo, las canciones son muy buenas, con notable influencia del pop inglés pero siempre dentro de los ritmos clásicos jamaicanos, aunque no se cortan si hay que meter algun sampler o alguna programación. El grupo lo ha producido Fuzz Townshend, bateria del grupo Pop Will Eat Itself, y han participado estrellas de la talla de Alvin Ewen, bajista de Steel Pulse; Ernie McKone, de Galliano o la banda de Paul Weller; o el teclista Nasser Bouzida, aka The Bongolian, y teclista de Big Boss Man. Es un disco de ska-rocksteady pero podría saltar en cualquier momento a lo más alto de las listas británicas.
