23min of Ska : Ska Won’t Die!

Oh yeah, back with the first new full music episode of 2012! We have a lot here! A bunch of newer songs and a bit of older stuff thrown in. I mean we go way back w/ some Desmond Dekker before speeding up to some late 90’s jams from Johnny Socko and the Agents. Then it is a quick stop from Monkey on the way up to the present with the Upsessions and Do It With Malice, two of my favorite more resent bands. And we also get smacked with A Guy Named Guy’s killer new song, that should be an anthem for the new year! Ska music’s not going to die, it just lost it’s direction, now that we have a plan of action, I just want to hear the music’s personality, give me action and some dancing! This is what it all about, new ska, old ska, traditional ska, punk ska, pop ska, super mind-bending hybrid ska! It gets me up in the morning and sets the day right! Hope it does the same for you. It is good to be back!
