Protex was greatly influenced by The Clash and took their original name, Protex Blue, from an album track on The Clash's eponymous debut album. The band did not realise the Clash song was about condoms. Protex's debut live performance was in 1978 at Knock Methodist Church Hall in Belfast. Shortly after the show they shortened their name to Protex to avoid any confusion about being a blues band. Protex landed a UK support slot on an Adam and the Ants UK tour. The band members then moved to London and set up base at the Chessington house, once the residence of Genesis and the Boomtown Rats. I Can Only Dream was the next single released by Polydor. It was produced by Chas Chandler, ex bass player with The Animals turned producer. Protex opened for the Boomtown Rats on their UK tour and on further tours in America and Canada in 1980.
After his time with Skankin' Pickle he went on to found Asian Man Records, a label which he has run out of his garage in California since 1996 with only help from his parents and friends. Asian Man Records supports mostly ska and punk bands. Park will support any band as long as it is "anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-prejudice". Park has used Asian Man Records to release his own music, in addition to providing a start for smaller bands to allow them to grow, including Less Than Jake, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms. Park was the impetus behind the Spring 1998 "Ska Against Racism" tour. The goal of the tour was to promote awareness about racism and raise money for anti-racism organisations such as the Museum of Tolerance. Karaoke with the Chinkees 7". Peace Through Music CD.

This time period is sometimes referred to as the nadir of American race relations because racism, segregation, racial discrimination, and expressions of white supremacy all increased. So did anti-black violence, including race riots such as the Atlanta Race riot of 1906 and the Tulsa race riot of 1921. During World War II, the Republic of China was an ally of the United States, and the federal government praised the resistance of the Chinese against Japan in the Second Sino-Japanese War, attempting to reduce anti-Chinese sentiment. In 1943, the Magnuson Act was passed by Congress, repealing the Chinese Exclusion Act and reopening Chinese immigration. However, at the time, the United States was actively fighting the Empire of Japan, which was a member of the Axis powers.
The Chinkees are an organ-driven ska band (without horns), lead by Mike Park. Their songs focus on racism, equality and personal experiences without being over-political. The Chinkees' name is not meant to be a racial slur, but just the opposite. It's meant to be a direct look at racism and the reality of it's presence" - Asian Man Records. Can You Get Me Out of Here.
Protex Blue" holds a notable position in The Clash's canon as being the opening song at their first ever show. After this it was never consistently in the band's live set, and appeared sporadically down the years, including with a dramatic return to their set in the 16 Tons tour in 1980 with a radical rearrangement including a new middle section.

Not since the heyday of early-Eighties MTV faves Madness and the Specials have ska aficionados (or at least part-time practitioners) enjoyed such red-carpet treatment from the musical powers that be. Without question, the uplifting, sometimes political, and often wacky musical detour of ska has experienced a resurgence, easily surpassing the popularity of any of its previous incarnations. Without much need for arm-twisting, the Ska Against Racism Tour came together.
