23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : Side A (part one)

Getting older makes on nostalgic for their youth and instead of just wallowing in it, I’m taking you on that journey. Throughout May I’ll be providing you with a 90min mix tape divided into 4 parts each Thursday. That’s not all, this mix tape will be set in the 90’s, when mix tapes were still king. The average year will more than likely be 1996 or 1997 when we come to the end of it. This is filled with music that evokes those years more than any other and are all mix tape “classic” tracks tracks for me. I hope you enjoy this month’s ride down memory lane for me. This is the stuff that got me into ska as a kid, it is my roots, and I don’t care that they are showing.

Goldfinger – King for a Day (Goldfinger ’96)
Less Than Jake – How’s My Driving, Doug Hastings? (Losing Streak ’96)
MU330 – Hoosier Love (Press ’94)
Reel Big Fish – S.R. (Everything Sucks ’94)
Mad Caddies – Mike Booted Our First Song, So We Recorded This… (Short Music for Short People comp ’99)
the Siren Six! – No Compromise (the Voice with the Built in Promise ’97)
Big D & the Kids Table – 51 Gardner (Good Luck ’99)
Skankin’ Pickle – I Missed the Bus (Skankin’ Pickle Fever ’92)
the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Someday I Suppose (Don’t Know How to Party ’93)

This is part one of a 90min ska mix tape from the nineties running each Thursday throughout May.
