Captain SKA burst onto the music scene in 2010 when producer and trumpet player Jake Painter decided to put his political frustrations into music. Since then the act has become a well known entity on the left and has released many singles and videos and played shows across the UK and Europe. Captain SKA's first ever studio album 'La Isla Del Brexit' was released in May 2022 

In 2017 Captain SKA's 'Liar Liar GE2017' became an international news story reaching number four in the UK charts, prompting response from UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
