23min of Ska : Wooden

23skaCOASTER1Here’s an episode that lives up to the whole “roller coaster” premise. It starts a little slow, setting you up and then BAM you’re in the middle of a bunch of nonstop action… there’s a small lull and then you’re right back in the thick of it until the end. That’s the idea, but I haven’t always been hitting the mark, but this one I did, this one is one of the best examples of what I wanted to accomplish with this session so far. Hope you all enjoy it as well.

23min of Ska : 18yrs Old Means You’re an Adult… Right?

23ska9BALLEveryone who’s 18 thinks they know what they’re talking about. I was no exception. Big talking idiot. Yeesh! I’m glad there’s not too many people that know the stories of my youth. Mostly being a loud mouthed idiot. Getting into minor trouble, and pissing off the people I should’ve been trying to impress, and trying to impress people who weren’t worth my time. We’ve all been there, right? And hell, if you’re still there, and still young, don’t take any advice from me to start cleaning up your act, because I know I sure wouldn’t’ve taken it. Go, be you. Me, I’ll sit here laughing at my younger self’s ways, while thanking him for at least helping shape the man I am today.

23min of Ska : Just Talkin’ ’bout My Demographic

23skaHAWAIIANIn the late ’90s, into the twenty-first century, the idols & press darlings were the faceless DJs, pop stars, girl & boy bands. It’s not to say that I’m not a techno/disco/pop lover (I mean, come on, I keep it (barely) undercover) but mostly I wanted some personality and that’s what the ska and ska/punk scene gave me in my music. But, what was popular loomed large and to become party to that constituted a huge infraction to your street cred and cost you major punk rock points, that would be selling out. Not to say that some bands of the ska/punk variety never enjoyed some mainstream success, but it didn’t last long before they were cast down like Icarus on their wings of checkered wax, to once again hang out with the rest of us. Thankfully, no not too many noses were turned up about that fact from either side of the stage. So here’s to selling out, why it is no good, what to do about it, and why it never really mattered in the first place!

Johnny Socko – Next Big Thing (Full Trucker Effect ’97)
Five Iron Frenzy – Handbook for the Sellout (Our Newest Album Ever! ’97)
King Kong Girio – One Song (Now That I’m Gone ’13)
Less Than Jake – Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Sellouts (Losing Streak ’96)
MU330 – Sellout Police (Best of MU330 ’98)
the Holophonics – All I Wanna do (is Sell Out) (Third Wave Undead ’13)
Reel Big Fish – Sell Out (Turn the Radio Off! ’96)
