23min of Ska : Both Feet on the Floor

23skatruckerbothfeetWhen I started this episode, and finished it a few weeks ago (sorry I’ve been working ahead a bit, I have been busy with my essential job (second aside: I don’t come into contact with many people, so don’t worry for me)) I didn’t expect the world to go to hell… I almost scraped this for a more pointed episode addressing America’s dire situation… but in the end this episode that I had assembled kept bringing me joy as I listened to it, and I want to bring you all joy as well in these, now very, troubling times. Be well my friends, take care of yourselves and care and help out others in need.

23min of Ska : Caramel

23skaCARAMELWhat I loved about ska shows back in the mid-’90s was that you really didn’t know what you were going to get. A more traditional ska band, a ska/punk band that was more punk than ska, a 2 Tone revival sounding band, a ska/punk band that was more ska than punk, a band with 4 members, a band with 10 members, a band full of high schoolers or a band full of actual adults! It really was all over the map like that, and the thing that brought those bands to our towns and the crowds to the venues was the ska that was at the center, in some way, of it all. This episode represents that love of all things ska that I had as a young man encountering shows not knowing exactly what I was going to see, but at the same time knowing that I was going to dig it!

Also, check this out! This episode kicks off with a brand brand new song from the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble from their forthcoming album “Break Thru” (click the link for the pre-order), followed by a song of the latest release from Joker’s Republic before moving on to a new song from the Pomps that will be the lead track of their new EP “Drums and Liars” due out next month.

23min of Ska : the Age of Apocalypse

23skaAGEOFAPOCALYPSEFinally bringing a lost episode in to official continuity. I mean this kind of thing was expected, right? With comics being a theme for this set it very well should’ve been expected I pull something like this! It was all about finding the perfect placement for it. It’s been reworked from the ground up, balanced better, different track order, but yeah, this episode was available Dec 20th, 2012, just in time for the end of the world, should it’ve come to that. It wasn’t a normal release day for the show back then, so it had no number, no real place in the 23 episode sets, and I couldn’t place it any place else. It was originally going to re-run near the end of the last set, but it didn’t seem right. Now, now it feels right!

00:00 – Mephiskapheles – Doomsday (God Bless Satan ’94)
03:06 – Fishbone – Party at Ground Zero (Fishbone ’85)
