23min of Ska : Phalanx Covenant

23skaPHALANXI almost didn’t do this episode. When I was originally going to do this series of episodes I was only going to loosely base the song selection on the title, not the contents of the story. Outside of the comic, this phrase means nothing. But since I’ve tried to hit key story points, or my favorite story moments with the songs, I knew I had to go for it. It turned out pretty damn good! Then again, with bands as great as these, it’s not hard to assemble a great mix of music!

00:00 – Eric Daino – Disappointed (Eric DTX ’16)
03:21 – Step Lively – Sea of Strangers (Trigger Effect ’99)
06:04 – Night Gaunts – Blink (Conversations with Creation ’15)
09:04 – Skavoovie & the Epitones – Japanese Robot (Ripe ’97)
10:45 – Rancid – Old Friend (…and Out Come the Wolves ’95)
13:38 – Stuck Lucky – D-D-D-Devastation (Possom Soul ’09)
15:05 – the Slackers – Robots (the Boss Harmony Sessions ’07)
19:45 – Club 99 – il Ritorno Dello Spacciatore di Cacao (Club 99 ’13)

23min of Ska : 19th Hole

23skaGOLFWhy in the hell would I make an episode with such a tenuous link to a theme? As always, because I thought it would be funny. So I start going through my head, computer and CD collection looking for key words, and I kept finding great songs! These were songs that I hadn’t played on the show before! So, yeah, golf is kinda dumb, and I don’t even play, but a golf themed episode made me laugh and there was too many great songs popping up that I had to do it. If there was a patron saint of golfing I’d say they influenced me or something… wait… there is? And it’s St. Andrew… and I didn’t even play a single Scottish ska band on this episode? Er… damn, I wish I hadn’t looked that up right before I started typing this text! Anyway, water traps and sand pits ahoy, it’s damn time to take a few shots off of your game before getting out of the sun to retire to the bar in the country club for a few beers. Right? Nah, still boring.

00:03 – Hepcat – Country Time (Scientific ’96)
03:16 – Club 99 – Grain of Sand (Club 99 ’13)
06:04 – MU330 – Stagnant Water (MU330 ’99)
08:00 – Reel Big Fish – Join the Club (Turn the Radio Off ’96)
11:20 – Bobby Pins & the Saloon Soldiers – Place in the Sun (Dancing on the Moon ’09)

18:21 – New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble – Bob Barker (New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble ’95)
20:18 – Skandalous All-Stars – Wish You Were a Beer (Hit Me ’97)
