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)
09:26 – Inspecter 7 – Purgatory (Banished to Bogeyland ’99)
12:26 – the Bohunks – Animal Times (In the Waiting Room ’11)
15:33 – the Insteps – the Final Call (Eleven Steps to Power ’96)
21:51 – Dan P. – Riot (Eat the Planet ’07)

23min of Ska : Living on the Edge

23ska-redplaidHere we go with another awesome episode of 23min of Ska. There is some pretty fresh tracks on this one! Green Room Rockers cover of “Wagon Wheel” from their Ska is Dead II 7″, as well as “They Say” from the reunited Inspecter 7! Not to mention the final song here from Johnny Cakes & the Four Horsemen of the Apocalpso, I don’t think that album has even come out yet! The rest of these songs are from bands I’ve just recently got into, the whole album from the Pandemics is great and I don’t know how I’ve been missing the Amalgamated for the last few years. Finally for the first time I’m playing some bands with ska puns in their names… but the Good Skamaritans and Abraskadabra were just too good to pass over!

the Good Skamaritans – Sitting on the Edge of the World (Let’s Rawk ’02)
Green Room Rockers – Wagon Wheel (Career Opportunities / Wagon Wheel ’12)
Abraskadabra – Let it Die (Grandma Nancy’s Old School Garden ’12)
Inspecter 7 – They Say (Escapes & Illusions ’13)
the Pandemics – Sleepy Sunday (New York City) (Brain on Tap ’12)
the Amalgamated – Keyser Soze (San Diego Ska ’11)
Johnny Cakes & the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypso – Responsible Adult (Curse of the Unsinkable Ship ’13)

23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : Side B (part two)

Here we are, at the end of our journey through out the 90s ska that made a huge impression on me as a young man. These songs are so classic! “Direction” is the first song off the first ska album I ever bought! You just can’t beat the Toasters! Potshot seemed to be all over the place back then, but I don’t remember many people talking about them. Mealticket and Inspecter 7 never really seemed to get the respect they deserved back then. I’m happy to see most people remember them quite fondly. The Slackers, one of the greats, not much more could be said about them. My Superhero are the nicest guys to eat at a Chicago Cracker Barrel with and talk about music. Let’s Go Bowling was always one of my favorites and one of the few I never got to see live. And who didn’t belt out “Teen Idol” out with their friends while driving around town from a local show the Denny’s/Perkin’s/Steak n’ Shake? I know who did though, me, Timmy Dee and Joshy Tea, you couldn’t stop us! There it is, this virtual 90min 90s ska tape is up!

the Toasters – Direction (Dub 56 ’94)
Potshot – Someone to Lean On (Pots and Shots ’97)
Mealticket – Lisa Marie (Lisa Marie ’97)
Inspecter 7 – Cookin’ (the Infamous ’97)
the Slackers – Have the Time (the Question ’98)
My Superhero – Going Somewhere (Solid State 14 ’97)
Let’s Go Bowling – Sick Fish (Music to Bowl By ’91)
Pharmaceutical Bandits – Teen Idol (Those Damn Bandits ’97)

This is the final part of a 90min ska mix tape from the nineties that ran each Thursday throughout May.
