Woah, a lot of great and awesome music came out this year! Seriously! Here’s a small selection of it! This is not a highlights reel, heck, a lot of great music that came out in 2011 that’s not even represented here! This is just a reminder that even in 2011, ska is still well and good and very much vibrantly alive! Keep it up, I love doing these episodes!
I was giving a challenge, if I chose to accept it, from my friend James over at the Ska Geek podcast. The mission was to do an episode of 23min of Ska with a spy theme, this is that podcast. Spies, secret agents, G-men & the FBI are all well represented here. 23mins of ska for your ears only!
the Toasters – Maxwell Smart (Hard Band for Dead ’96) Skapone – Samantha Clench, Private Eye (Bold New Flavor ’98) 7minds – Spy vs. Spy (No Time ’97)
Save Ferris – Superspy (It Means Everything ’97)
the Untouchables – FBI (I Spy for the) (Free Yourself ’85) Regatta 69 – G-Man (Fat-Free ’95) the Selecter – James Bond (Out on the Streets ’92) Bluekilla – Secret Agent Man (Ska is Our Business ’04)
