23min of Ska : Hats Off to Haters

23ska-blueplaidApparently I’ve been going about this all wrong. Ska/Punk music is the devil! I shall cast that evil off of this episode! Get back to the roots! Be a proper ska podcaster! But lo, still I fail. Why? Because I dare to support the modern ska bands that are still out there playing. Is this a problem? To some it seems to be. It won’t stop me and the hate won’t stop them. Join us, as we turn our backs on those who don’t agree. Hell, we have more fun than they do anyway. Rock on my brothers and sisters in ska, rock the eff on.

Chris Murray & the Slackers – the Real Ska (Slackness ’08)
Roy & Yvonne with the Shifters – Moving On (Ooh La La / Moving On ’13)
the Pinstripes – Overthinking (the Pinstripes Meet King Tony ’13)
Dan P. & the Bricks – Watch Where You Walk (Watch Where You Walk ’12)
Caz & the Day Laborers – Grateful (Caz & the Day Laborers ’13)
the Bashments – Landlord (the Bashments ’11)
the Longshots – Such a Fool (These Parasites ’12)
the Pomps – Pomps in the Arena (Top of the Pomps ’12)
