23min of Ska : Malted Milk Balls

23skaMALTEDMILKBALLSWhat a bear of an episode! Ten songs crammed into only twenty-three minutes! And it’s kicking off with a brand new song from Catbite? Woah! Can you go wrong? No sir or ma’am, you cannot. To be honest, this is a crazy one… mostly because the ska in some of these songs is either a little hidden or only comes in for short bits. So yeah, these aren’t all ska songs, but they all have ska bits somewhere in them. Some of these songs are some of my favorite songs! I understand if you get a bit put off by this episode, ska/punk isn’t everyone’s bag. But this episode, I like this episode and I hope that you do, too.

00:00 – Catbite – Come on Baby (Catbite ’19)
02:26 – the Army – Trendy (Shuffle Shuffle / Trendy ’80)
04:28 – the Interrupters – Rumors and Gossip (Fight the Good Fight ’18)
07:07 – No Such Noise – Repeat Offender (For Closure ’13)
09:15 – the Holophonics – Meteoric Rise To Mediocrity (Don’t Mess with the Holophonics ’15)
11:22 – Codename: Rocky – Extreme Close Up (Reboot ’16)
13:28 – the Hempsteadys – the Moon Laughs Knowingly (Séance! Séance! ’18)
15:22 – King Apparatus – Aesthetics (Marbles ’93)
17:12 – Hot Stove Jimmy – Down Sides Ahead (Theme for a Major Hit ’99)
20:00 – Telethon – the Paranoid Blur (the Grand Spontanean ’17)

23min of Ska : Caramel

23skaCARAMELWhat I loved about ska shows back in the mid-’90s was that you really didn’t know what you were going to get. A more traditional ska band, a ska/punk band that was more punk than ska, a 2 Tone revival sounding band, a ska/punk band that was more ska than punk, a band with 4 members, a band with 10 members, a band full of high schoolers or a band full of actual adults! It really was all over the map like that, and the thing that brought those bands to our towns and the crowds to the venues was the ska that was at the center, in some way, of it all. This episode represents that love of all things ska that I had as a young man encountering shows not knowing exactly what I was going to see, but at the same time knowing that I was going to dig it!

Also, check this out! This episode kicks off with a brand brand new song from the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble from their forthcoming album “Break Thru” (click the link for the pre-order), followed by a song of the latest release from Joker’s Republic before moving on to a new song from the Pomps that will be the lead track of their new EP “Drums and Liars” due out next month.

00:00 – New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble – Chicky Chicky Boom Boom (Break Thru ’19)
02:54 – Joker’s Republic – Grow Up (Falling Behind ’19)
06:13 – the Pomps – P.A.D.D. (Drums and Liars ’19)
08:50 – the Crombies – Hooligans (One Love ’17)
11:19 – Dan P. & the Bricks – Only Words (When We Were Fearless ’18)
13:14 – the Delirians – Dream of Me (el Remedio ’18)
17:23 – Royal City Riot – the Rhythm (Coast to Coast ’09)
20:49 – Mustard Plug – Perfect Plan (Can’t Contain It ’14)
