23min of Ska : the Homecoming Issue!

23skaHOMECOMINGOh man, it’s that time of year again in the States (or elsewhere as well, I’m a ska fan, not a historian of the world and its celebrations) where people head back to their small towns and take in a football game or whatever and the high school kids are all fretting about the big dance… yup, it’s homecoming season! So yeah, find that old jacket that’s been packed away for decades, blow the dust of the ludicrously expensive class ring, and maybe talk to some of the few cool people you went to school with… you know the ones, the ones in your “Screw the actual “cool” people” club! Yeah, all your friends! I swear, call both of them! It’s Homecoming mother bitches!

23min of Ska : the Grover Records Special!

23skaGROVERCards out on the table, Grover is a boss record label! Founded in 1993 by Oswald Münnig, and distributing out of Germany they are as well known for issuing some rad albums but also licensing a lot of great ones too! They’ll help bands from outside Germany and Europe get releases over there, they’ll also issue albums on vinyl when a band’s main label only plans on a CD release. I chose to focus on releases from the main Grover label and releases that were only on Grover or Grover released first, because they co-released and rereleased a lot of great stuff! It’s an embarrassment of fantastic music! Needless to say, Grover has been hooking us all up with great music over and over!

00:00 – Dr. Ring-Ding & the Senior Allstars – Dandimite Ska (Dandimite! ’95)
03:51 – Laurel Aitken with Court Jester’s Crew – Woman is Sweeter Than Man (Jamboree ’00)
05:57 – Rude & Visser – Letter in the Mail (Red Rum ’02)
09:38 – the Stingers ATX – Telephone Breakdown (This Good Thing ’02)
12:04 – the Caroloregians – Special Brew (Funkify Your Reggay ’10)
15:28 – Moon Invaders – It’s Alright (the Fine Line ’11)
17:26 – Boss Capone – Cinderella (Boss Capone’s ’69 Reggae Bonanza ’15)
20:20 – the Magnetics – She don’t wanna Sleep Tonight (Coffee & Sugar ’19)
