23min of Ska Cross Over : This I Know with Josh and Joe

When I started off this nutty run of crossover episodes, I started w/ Josh from This I Know with Josh and Joe, so now it’s Joe’s turn to help me finish it off. I’ve known Joe since he was a baby. He’s my cousin and I love him. I was going to make fun of him and put up super goofy picture of him, but I took the high road! Once you’re done w/ this go listen to the hilariously fun podcast he and Josh do!

23min of Ska Convoy : the New, the Old & the Local

23skaTRUCKERconvoyMATTSka music has been a big part of my life for over the past 20 years. I even met my wife because of ska music. Being a teenager in Orange County, California in the mid 90’s you couldn’t escape ska music. However, when others stopped listening, ska music stayed in heavy rotation with me.

For this playlist, I followed a very simple plan to make it. I picked something old, something new and something local. Five Iron Frenzy, The O.C. Supertones and Less Than Jake are the bands I’ve been listening to the longest. Millington and The Skluttz are the newest bands on the list. Half Past Two, Hooray For Our Side and Codename:Rocky are some of my favorite hometown bands. I hope you enjoy my picks.

00:00 – O.C. Supertones – Supertones Strike Back (the Supertones Strike Back ’97)
02:37 – Hooray for Our Side – Don’t Panic (Overture ’15)
05:05 – Codename: Rocky – Ctl Alt Del (Reboot ’16)
07:22 – Less Than Jake – Motown Never Sounded so Good (Anthem ’03)
09:55 – the Skluttz – Ska Police (Confidence is Key ’20)
13:15 – Millington – Big Man on Campus (Millington ’18)
16:45 – Half Past Two – See You Again (See You Again ’20)
19:19 – Five Iron Frenzy – Cool Enough for You (Upbeats & Beatdowns ’97)

RJ sez: On the Upbeat is a hell of a fun podcast, go back and listen to the older episodes while the show is on break! And for full disclosure, Matt had picked different songs for Hooray for Our Side and Half Past Two, but after Half Past Two put out this killer new single we both knew it had to be included. This, of course, threw off the timing of the episode, so I offered up a change to the Hooray for Our Side song to even things out. Luckily Matt agreed and we have another rad episode!

23min of Ska : Accelerator

23skaCOASTER7This episode is insane, and fast, and punky, and silly. You’ve been warned if you’re not into that kind of thing. It’s got a lot of new bands that I think stand shoulder to shoulder with the more “classic” ska/punk bands presented here.

23skaCHOCOICECREAMHere we all listeners, at the end of another set of 23 episodes! That’s right, this is the last scoop of ice cream. These last 23 weeks have had some real ups and downs, but I think we all found a ton of great music along the way despite any other troubles in the world. I know I certainly found a bunch of stuff to groove and jump up and down to! But I’m seeing lists of the top ska albums of 2017 coming out and I’m seeing there’s a whole bunch more I missed! Could there be too much ska out there? …nah!

23min of Ska : Long John

23skalongjohnEver 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!

23min of Ska : King in Yellow

23skatrenchcoatThis started out as an all covers episode, but that was earlier in the day. By the time the sun set I was in a much mellower mood, and let’s be real, most covers are very uptempo and very ska/punk-centric. So yeah, this one is a little laid back, and the laid back cover hung in there. A relaxing little treat after you’ve binged food all day. Well, that is, if you’re in the U.S. if not, you have a real problem, buddy!
