23min of Ska : the Mossburg Music Special!

23skaMOSSBURGI first became aware of Mossburg Music when I was working w/ the Georgetown Orbits. They really seemed to be a quality label. Later on, I got to know Billy Geoghegan, the founder of Mossburg. He was a great guy, to talk with in general, about running a label, about ska and about this great country. Mossburg isn’t confined to a specific area, because Billy isn’t. Wherever he goes he brings that Mossburg magic and manages to crank out a few releases. The label has been around in fits and spurts for some time, and I for one really hope that it continues on!

23min of Ska : the Bad Time Records Special!

23skaBADTIME

photo credit: Shutter Crust

Ok, so Bad Time Records is a newer label, but I didn’t want to discount them. They are the ska/punk label to be watching! Now, yes, the catalog isn’t that big yet, but it’s getting there and with quality! I’m doing something I don’t normally do, and that’s including compilation tracks from the same compilation. I’ve tried to avoid this, but damn if “the Shape of Ska Punk to Come: Volume 1” isn’t a killer comp, and the three songs included here are only scratching the surface of that awesomeness! They’ve done a few rereleases/first time on vinyl, so that’s why you see some records that are older than 2019 on here. It looks like they have some big plans for 2020 and I couldn’t be more onboard. If you have somehow missed these bands or Bad Time Records before, now you can safely be in the know with this episode an await their every release along with me!

00:00 – J. Navarro & the Traitors – No Control (the Shape of Ska Punk to Come: Volume 1 comp ’19)
02:31 – Catbite – Scratch Me Up (Catbite ’19)
05:10 – OMNIGONE – Six Feet Down (No Faith ’19)
06:20 – We Are The Union – MTV is Over, if You want It (Who We Are ’07)
09:10 – No Such Noise – Gorgon City (the Shape of Ska Punk to Come: Volume 1 comp ’19)
11:50 – Thirsty Guys – Bad Chemistry (Parched ’19)
14:23 – Kill Lincoln – Days I Spent Inside (Good Riddance to Good Advice ’15)
17:54 – Stuck Lucky – True Crimes (the Shape of Ska Punk to Come: Volume 1 comp ’19)
20:20 – DISSIDENTE / ДИССИДЕНТЫ – ‘Til Debt do We Part (Frontline ’17)
