23min of Ska Convoy : the New, the Old & the Local

23skaTRUCKERconvoyMATTSka music has been a big part of my life for over the past 20 years. I even met my wife because of ska music. Being a teenager in Orange County, California in the mid 90’s you couldn’t escape ska music. However, when others stopped listening, ska music stayed in heavy rotation with me.

For this playlist, I followed a very simple plan to make it. I picked something old, something new and something local. Five Iron Frenzy, The O.C. Supertones and Less Than Jake are the bands I’ve been listening to the longest. Millington and The Skluttz are the newest bands on the list. Half Past Two, Hooray For Our Side and Codename:Rocky are some of my favorite hometown bands. I hope you enjoy my picks.

00:00 – O.C. Supertones – Supertones Strike Back (the Supertones Strike Back ’97)
02:37 – Hooray for Our Side – Don’t Panic (Overture ’15)
05:05 – Codename: Rocky – Ctl Alt Del (Reboot ’16)
07:22 – Less Than Jake – Motown Never Sounded so Good (Anthem ’03)
09:55 – the Skluttz – Ska Police (Confidence is Key ’20)
13:15 – Millington – Big Man on Campus (Millington ’18)
16:45 – Half Past Two – See You Again (See You Again ’20)
19:19 – Five Iron Frenzy – Cool Enough for You (Upbeats & Beatdowns ’97)

RJ sez: On the Upbeat is a hell of a fun podcast, go back and listen to the older episodes while the show is on break! And for full disclosure, Matt had picked different songs for Hooray for Our Side and Half Past Two, but after Half Past Two put out this killer new single we both knew it had to be included. This, of course, threw off the timing of the episode, so I offered up a change to the Hooray for Our Side song to even things out. Luckily Matt agreed and we have another rad episode!

23min of Ska : Two Down…

23skaTWOCITIESDo you think I would even think of ending this podcast with out giving you all one last huge ska/punk episode? If ska/punk isn’t yr thing, I understand, I get it, but I love it just as much as I dig the more traditional sound. Ok, yeah, I’m still trying to figure out what the countdown means, I decided not to kill 23min of Ska a few weeks ago, but this has still got to lead someplace, and I don’t know what to do after this. There’s always been some kind of method to my madness, as random as it seems, that keeps be going, past the joy that listening to ska music brings me. I just need to find that next hook, that warp zone to the next level, and I’ll be set. I’m sure I’ll get there, I’m sure we all will. Life isn’t worth living if you not striving for next.
