23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : the ’80s : Side A (part two)

MayMixTape-80s-sideApart2Now here’s an episode I’m worried about. These bands aren’t the heaviest of hitters when it comes to name recognition, but I assure you, they’re every bit as good as any of the ’80s ska bands that you’re more familiar with. If you hadn’t heard of any of these acts before, well, seriously, you’re in for a blue beat treat!

00:00 – No Sports – Heidi (King Ska ’89)
03:07 – the Loafers – Bad News (Contagious ’89)
06:30 – Shot Black & White – Day In / Day Out (Understand ’88)
09:12 – the Army – Kick it Down (Kick it Down / Mr. Average ’81)
11:51 – the Burial – Sheila (a Day on the Town ’86)
14:08 – el Bosso & die Ping Pongs – Immer Nur Ska! (Immer Nur Ska ’89)
17:16 – Lou & the Hollywood Bananas – Wings of a Dove (Wings of a Dove ’80)
20:25 – the Trojans – I Don’t Like It (Ala-ska ’87)
