Ok, so Bad Time Records is a newer label, but I didn’t want to discount them. They are the ska/punk label to be watching! Now, yes, the catalog isn’t that big yet, but it’s getting there and with quality! I’m doing something I don’t normally do, and that’s including compilation tracks from the same compilation. I’ve tried to avoid this, but damn if “the Shape of Ska Punk to Come: Volume 1” isn’t a killer comp, and the three songs included here are only scratching the surface of that awesomeness! They’ve done a few rereleases/first time on vinyl, so that’s why you see some records that are older than 2019 on here. It looks like they have some big plans for 2020 and I couldn’t be more onboard. If you have somehow missed these bands or Bad Time Records before, now you can safely be in the know with this episode an await their every release along with me!

23min of Ska : Malted Milk Balls

23skaMALTEDMILKBALLSWhat a bear of an episode! Ten songs crammed into only twenty-three minutes! And it’s kicking off with a brand new song from Catbite? Woah! Can you go wrong? No sir or ma’am, you cannot. To be honest, this is a crazy one… mostly because the ska in some of these songs is either a little hidden or only comes in for short bits. So yeah, these aren’t all ska songs, but they all have ska bits somewhere in them. Some of these songs are some of my favorite songs! I understand if you get a bit put off by this episode, ska/punk isn’t everyone’s bag. But this episode, I like this episode and I hope that you do, too.
