23min of Ska : Hey, High Fives All Around!

23ska roofFive! The countdown is real… in case you haven’t noticed for the last eighteen episodes the titles have been counting down… but to what? Truth be told, it might be counting down to the end. The end of the podcast proper? When I started the countdown, yes, this is exactly what it was leading to. But I’m having second thoughts. Months ago when this countdown started it was when I was getting hardly any downloads, listens, shares, likes, what-have-you and zero feedback. It was depressing. Ska isn’t supposed to depress people. Then the month of January hit… and it has been crazy! Huge download numbers, a number of new listeners and several supportive comments… I’m kind of shocked. It makes me want to keep going. So what are we counting down to? Listeners, tell me what you want from this podcast, we’ll go from there! This show is nothing with out you and the bands, I’m just a middle man, hit me up, let me know! Maybe we’re just counting down to an even better version of 23min of Ska!

Rerun-ish : 23min of Ska : Excuse Me Mr.

A Note: This episode first “aired” in September of 2012. Well, not exactly. The original episode has one song in it that has been swapped out for another. See, when I first made this episode I’d planned on using “Mr. Tragedy” by the Slackers, then I saw I wanted to use a different Slackers song in another episode right after this one and didn’t want my listeners to have some Slackers overkill, so I replaced it w/ “Mr. Pink” by the Articles. This wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that I’d just used “Mr. Pink” in a episode about a month before! Whoops! I didn’t realize this until it was far too late. Then in the next episode the Slackers song I was going to use there got edged out and delayed for a while, meaning I could’ve totally done what I wanted w/o worry and not have played that Articles song twice… if only I had a time machine… So here is the episode as it was originally intended!

Here’s the episode’s original write up (w/ a few minor changes): In honor of my awesome cat Mr. Pants, here is a whole bunch of songs for the Misters! There is a lot of absolute classics in here! You can’t beat the Toasters, the Articles the Slackers or the Smooths! Hands down, great songs by great bands! New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble and Pressure Cooker also the deliver the good diggin’ down on the ska sound. The Stretch Band (AKA Stretch Armstrong) throws in a cover of one of my favorite Devo songs, and while it loses the ska beat every now and again, it is so good, I couldn’t leave it out! Then smack in the middle of all this, I hit you with Jorge and the Landladies incredibly lush and psychedelic sound. If you don’t have that album yet, I don’t know what more convincing you’ll need.

the Toasters – Mr. Trouble (Skaboom! ’87)
New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble – Mr. Pitiful (Low Blow ’97)
the Stretch Band – Mr. DNA (Mashin’ Potatoes comp ’00)
Jorge & the Landladies – Mr. David (Monobound ’12)
Pressure Cooker – Mr. Precious (Future’s History ’06)
the Slackers – Mr. Tragedy (the Great Rocksteady Swindle ’10)
the Smooths – Mr. Figurehead (Very Own Vegas ’96)

Interview : Jorge Pezzimenti

I got to talk to Jorge Pezzimenti and it was awesome! Jorge is better known as the Jorge of Jorge & the Landladies or as a former member of the Pietasters. Jorge is hilarious! So get ready for a ton of laughing on my part. We talk a lot about the sound of his new album “Monobound” as well as Sunday morning albums, songs about hand-jobs and Mighty Mighty Bosstones cassette tapes. Jorge also gives us some insight into the song “Stop Locking the Front Door” which plays at the end of this episode.

Check out “Monobound” from Whatevski : Jorge & the Landladies – Monobound

The intro for this episode is “Let’s Not Rewind These” by Jorge and the Landladies, off of the “Monobound”.

Indeed, let’s do this! Let’s do this episode! Let’s start dancing! Let’s start doing everything! So get out, get up in it and have a great time! Start something and start it today! Come on, let’s do this! In the spirit of “Let’s Do This” me and two friends drove quite aways, braving some awful LA traffic to see the Bohunks, the second band on this episode, and it was damn magical! Their song is followed up by Jorge and the Landladies doing an excellent cover of a Who song (a fact I didn’t know until Jorge told me and I had to hang head in shame). It is another fine collection of music for you to enjoy listen to, that I had fun putting together, see, we’re all winning!
