23min of Ska : Mix Tape : the ’10s Side B (part 1)

MixTape00-SideBPart1Awww yeah, now we’re on the flip side! This episode is a little more international than the last few episodes on this mixtape. I’ve always wanted more and more international bands on this show, and as I keep doing the show, I’ll keep trying as I continue making the show to keep in as international as possible. Ska isn’t just an English speaking country thing and I need to get better at keeping this show as varied as possible. So yeah, go around the world and back in time a bit with this episode, and enjoy it!

23min of Ska : Wall to Wall and Ten-Feet-Tall

393Here’s something crazy… this podcast is 10 years old! Say what? I seriously do not believe it. On January 23rd, 2010 I posted the first episode of 23min of Ska, not knowing what journey I was about to embark on. It was just a little side project to do when not working on the reality show podcast I was working on at the time. In fact, I wasn’t sure if it should be 23 minutes or 15 minutes. To this day I’m still not sure, but 23 feels right.

When I started it wasn’t weekly, it was twice a month, with only one episode in January, so a new set of 23 episodes was starting on 1/23 each year. In my initial plans, I was going to do the show for 10 years, 2010 – 2020. Each year would have 23 episodes releases on the 11th and 23rd of each month after January. I still almost ended the show in 2016 when I get to the end of the original 9 sets of 23 episodes a process sped up by going weekly. I relented at the last minute because I love doing this show and thought that that would be too early to quit.

Now here I am, at my original ending day… and I still don’t want to quit. January 23rd, 2020 was supposed to be the first time I was not going to post an episode based on that plan. Kind of glad I didn’t. I’m more in love with ska and the ska community than I was when I started this show 10 years ago. This is the 18th set of 23 episodes, so we’re well on our way to doubling the number of my original plans by mid-2020. After that… still not going to quit! So buckle up, there’s still plenty of rad ska for me to share with you!

23skaGUNGIRLWoah! Lots of new ska on this episode! Heck, some of these songs JUST came out! (I mean, except that Kill Lincoln track, that one’s about 5 yrs old) The one comment I get from people when they find out I do a ska podcast, or that I’m into ska in general, is “ska is still a thing?” As much as I want to lecture them on the long history of ska I just say “Yep!” And when listening to bands such as these put out music so recently that is so good, well, ska is going to be a thing for quite awhile!

23min of Ska : Blackmailers Don’t Shoot

23skaGUNGIRLWelcome back to 23min of Ska! I’m really happy to be playing so many new bands on this episode! For me ska and ska/punk will never be a nostalgia act. Sure, there’s plenty of older bands that I dig, but man, nothing compares to sifting through the internet or used record bins finding new and interesting bands, the ones that are keeping ska alive! So I really hope you all dig this episode, a lot of “research” (sitting in my office jamming out to ska music) went into this one, and check these bands out!
