23min of Ska : Blackmailers Don’t Shoot

23skaGUNGIRLWelcome back to 23min of Ska! I’m really happy to be playing so many new bands on this episode! For me ska and ska/punk will never be a nostalgia act. Sure, there’s plenty of older bands that I dig, but man, nothing compares to sifting through the internet or used record bins finding new and interesting bands, the ones that are keeping ska alive! So I really hope you all dig this episode, a lot of “research” (sitting in my office jamming out to ska music) went into this one, and check these bands out!

23min of Ska : Regenesis

23skaREGENESISYa can’t keep a good podcast down! 23min of Ska hitting back at you after another long week. Get prepped for that weekend, it’s gonna be fun and relaxing one. At least I hope so for your sake. We all need a respite after these last few weeks, right? Now, I’m never one to warn people away from the show, but if you’re not a ska/punk fan, eeeeee, this might not be the episode for you. Certainly there’s some straight up ska in here, but there’s some ska/punk that’s rather heavy on the punk, and just heavy in general. That’s a fair warning: this podcast plays both kinds of music, ska & ska/punk. Deal with it.

23min of Ska : Utopia

23skaUTOPIAWe all have our favorite bands, the bands we grew up with, the bands we were friends with, the bands that had music there when we really needed it. They provide us a way back home in our head. Pretty nifty trick music is, isn’t it? This episode features bands that, to be honest, not sure I would’ve found if not doing this podcast. An arguement could be made for Rude King and the Dropsteppers, but I 100% wouldn’t’ve found these other bands had I not been looking for good music to play, and man, I’m so glad I did! They’re all so great! So enjoy this episode of some of my favorite bands I’ve found along the way.
