23min of Ska : the Homecoming Issue!

23skaHOMECOMINGOh man, it’s that time of year again in the States (or elsewhere as well, I’m a ska fan, not a historian of the world and its celebrations) where people head back to their small towns and take in a football game or whatever and the high school kids are all fretting about the big dance… yup, it’s homecoming season! So yeah, find that old jacket that’s been packed away for decades, blow the dust of the ludicrously expensive class ring, and maybe talk to some of the few cool people you went to school with… you know the ones, the ones in your “Screw the actual “cool” people” club! Yeah, all your friends! I swear, call both of them! It’s Homecoming mother bitches!

23min of Ska : the July Issue

23ska17JULYHere’s a great batch of ska for you all today! So this is the “off week” where I’m not exploring a specific label, just, you know, listening to some dope as hell ska! The last song here is the kick off for a “song war” between Derrick Morgan and Prince Buster. Provided I can track down all 11 tracks, they will be filling in the last track slot on episodes not covering a record label. Fun, right? Well, I think it is, so get ready for it!
