23min of Ska : How Many Candles You Burning?

23skaTRUCKERcandlesburningIt’s my birthday early next week, so I thought I’d dig around in my records crate and pull out some tracks for an all vinyl episode of 23min of ska. Some of these tracks were later put out digitally, but I don’t have them. So yeah, there’s some clicks and pops and other random record sounds, this is mainly because I do only a small clean up of the music after the transfer. This is because I dig those little imperfections that come with vinyl and I don’t really want to remove that from the final product.

23min of Ska : 10-4 Good Buddy

23skaTRUCKERtenfourgoodbuddyAfter 2 solid ska/punk and high energy ska episodes in a row, I decided to take it down a notch on this one. Also, when I started this session of 23min of Ska I dedicated it to my friend Lawless, and well, it’s about to get a little Lawless up in here because I’m including a clutch of songs from his Moondust record label on this one. I’m keeping it a bit laid back to make the tone a little chill, but also to give us all a bit of breather to relax and reflect.
