23min of Ska : the BIB Records / DVS Media Special!

23skaBIBDVSSo BIB Records and DVS Media are two different record labels… but they seem to be a bit intertwined. A handful of albums seemingly came out around the same time on each label, both operated seemingly out of the Boston area and they co-released at least one ska compilation. In the end, I don’t know the true story behind them (and I think that I’ll probably be finding out from the slightly older, or more “in-the-know” ska crowd as soon as I publish this) …but I do know this, and this is the important part, they both put out some killer ska music!

00:00 – Bim Skala Bim – Skeleton (Eyes & Ears ’95)
03:06 – Steady Earnest – Please Go Away (Out of Line ’93)
06:15 – Dion Knibb & the Agitators – Caribbean Eskimo (Driving Me Mad ’98)
09:10 – the infamous SHOELESS JOE – Back On Up (diversionary tactics ’00)
