It’s my birthday early next week, so I thought I’d dig around in my records crate and pull out some tracks for an all vinyl episode of 23min of ska. Some of these tracks were later put out digitally, but I don’t have them. So yeah, there’s some clicks and pops and other random record sounds, this is mainly because I do only a small clean up of the music after the transfer. This is because I dig those little imperfections that come with vinyl and I don’t really want to remove that from the final product.

Ever get a stupid idea in your head? The kind of idea that sends you down a path, that even though you know it’s stupid and kind of silly, you just can’t shake it? So you follow this idea, all the while knowing it’s the kind of thing only you’d find funny? But you throw a lot of work and research into it anyway? The kind of idea that makes you stay up late and go to work tired as hell the next day, and risk losing your job? You know those ideas? Well, I’m telling you, in the end, they’re always worth it!

Once again, time and making records has got the best of me! I know, incredibly frustrating! All I have to do is sit around all day and listen to ska music and throw it all together for you to listen to once a week! You might be surprised, but I maybe put too much thought into it and too much pressure on myself to make these! So here’s an oldie but a goody, from way back when my only listeners were me, my friends Jen & Marianne and my cats, full of some great great music!
Skankin’ Pickle – Song #3 (Skankin’ Pickle Fever ’92)
the Siren Six! – Frame Up (the Voice with the Built in Promise ’97) Let’s Go Bowling – Spy Market (Mr. Twist ‘ 96)
the Small Mediums at Large – the Blues (the Small Mediums at Large ’99) Hepcat – Bobby & Joe (Scientific ’96) Skavoovie & the Epitones – Sonic Boom (Fat Footin’ 95) the Selecter – Three Minute Hero (Too Much Pressure ’80)
Johnny Too Bad & the Strike Outs – Cherry Pie (Patchwork Girl ’97) Streetlight Manifesto – 9mm & a Three-Piece Suit (Keasbey Nights ’06)

Here we are, another 23 minutes of ska. What’s really been fun with this project is pulling out some CDs that I haven’t listened to in years and rediscovering some old favorites. I hope this has the same effect for some of the listeners and introduces something new to others. And for the last song I couldn’t find my Catch 22 CD so I went with the Streetlight Manifesto version. Catch your copy by downloading it here.
