23min of Ska : Jackknife in the Circle City

23skaTRUCKERjackknifecirclecitySo each year, a few friends of mine celebrate “Johnny Socko Day” which is on May 6th, so this podcast, unfortunately, misses the silliness by a day. Basically, all we do is make Socko references to each other on social media and listen to Johnny Socko while we do our day jobs, you know some real corny goofball stuff. Anyway, I decided to make this episode of 23min of Ska in the same Socko celebration spirit! This is an episode that is chock full of Indiana’s finest ska and ska/punk bands, from way back when to the present day. So put on a pair of comfortable shoes, cut a rug and be the freakiest freak on the dancefloor!

23min of Ska : the 7 Chakras

23skaCHAKRAWhat do I know about chakras? Not too much, I’m really hoping a whitey like me isn’t offending any Indians whose religious practice includes the chakras. Come to think of it, I didn’t worry about offending Christians when I did theme episodes on the Deadly Sins… well, retroactively, I hope I didn’t upset any Christians. At most the chakras were a spring board to present 7 songs or artists that in some way relate to what each chakra represents. It isn’t perfect, but it was fun to try and figure out, and hell, all of this music is worth hearing anyway, so stop reading and get listening!

23min of Ska : Never Go Back Home Again

23ska-orangeplaidWhen I first moved away from the area I grew up it I made it a point to not go back for a visit too soon. Not that I didn’t like the area, in fact I loved it, but I knew I’d never get used to LA if I didn’t give it a fair shake. When I did go home, well, I found it lacking. The thing is, Peoria didn’t change all that much, but I did, my friends and family did. It took me a bit to get my head around it. It wasn’t just a geographical location I was missing, but also a temporal location. Peoria, IL 1999 – 2005 isn’t a place I can visit or point to on a map. Sure, I can find and go to the place I called home, but I can’t go back there w/o a flux capacitor. Ultimately that’s a good thing. Memories are as good as gold in the end, be thankful for the fact that you have any good ones at all. It’s never the location, it is what you do w/ the time that you are there that counts.

Johnny Socko – Sour Me (Full Trucker Effect ’97)
Greenhouse – Fire Escape (Tomorrow the World ’98)
