23min of Ska : Peach Rings

23skaPEACHRINGSBack at it with some more ska for you, in fact, a whole 23 minutes worth! Can you believe it! So this episode is kinda laid back but is also all over the place. One of the few rules I have for this podcast is that a song has got to have some ska beat in it somewhere. Do all of these songs do that? They sure do! Is that beat through-out the duration of each song? Sure isn’t. Ska is the beat, if it’s got the beat, I’ll play it on the show. Can it be surrounded by a lot of other stuff? Yup. Can it wildly deviate from the beat at times? I’ll allow it. Wait, isn’t it some of this stuff just straight up rocksteady? Shut your dirty mouth, I sometimes play rocksteady, accept it.

00:00 – Boss Riot – Sad for You (Lace Up Straight ’18)
03:17 – the Jinkies – Something New (the Jinkies ’97)
05:56 – Scotch Bonnets – Another Saturday Night (Come on Over ’19)
09:14 – Simple Minded Symphony – Widow’s Watch (Arrival ’18)
12:31 – Skaos – After Midnight (Beware! Skaos… is Approaching! ’88)
15:53 – Flying Racoon Suit – Nothing’s Changed (Static Home ’19)
18:57 – the Skluttz – Rapunzel (Sweet and Sour ’19)

23min of Ska : Butterscotch Discs

23skaBUTTERSCOTCH“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power… They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective, toward which all their deceit is directed, is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.”

– Henry A. Wallace
