23min of Ska : Ginchy!

I’ve been reading Mike Allred comics pretty much since I got into comics. He’s a guy that makes me still love superhero comics, while bringing his indie idealism into the fold. Kinda like a lot of these bands. Kill Lincoln and Bite Me Bambi are taking that ska/punk sound and totally elevating it! And there’s also great tracks from Shandon, King Kong 4, the Skajects, and Smoke Like a Fish rounding out this episode like Laura Allred’s colors round out Mike’s line work! And that Rude Boy George track? It can’t be a tribute to the Allreds and “Madman” with out a bit of Bowie! (Also, that songs from the upcoming charity album “Block Buster : a Tribute to Glam Rock” Go pre-order it!)

00:00 – Shandon ft. Mr. T-Bone – Wrong Note (Back on Board ’16)
02:47 – Kill Lincoln – Greetings from Inner Space (Can’t Complain ’20)
05:50 – Bite Me Bambi – This Love is Dead (Hurry Up and Wait ’20)
09:32 – King Kong 4 – Going a bit Mad in Our Own Way (There’s Not Much You or I Can do About It ’17)
12:07 – the Skajects – Taken from the Start (Taken from the Start ’20)
15:38 – Smoke Like a Fish – Ready of Not (Smoke Like a Fish ’02)
18:35 – Rude Boy George – Moonage Daydream (Block Buster: a Tribute to Glam Rock ’20)

23min of Ska : Precious Little Life

So, yeah, I wanted to do an episode with a lot of my favorite Canadian bands and pattern it after “Alpha Flight” but that wasn’t coming together. Then I heard the opening track by “Lo(u)ser” and KNEW I needed to do a “Scott Pilgrim” styled episode and then everything just fell right together! Keep the Canadians, add a bunch of other great tracks, and that’s a podcast!

00:00 – Lo(u)ser – Grow Up (Grow Up ’20)
02:18 – Amy Gabba and the Almost Famous – Lies (Heart is Stupid ’19)
05:00 – Rude Boy George – Magnificent 7 (Combat Cancer : a Tribute to the Clash comp ’15)
09:30 – King Kong 4 – dead letter (anything can happen, but almost nothing will ’20)
11:12 – minivandal – Fact Check (Turn Left Here ’18)
13:44 – the Kingpins – All the World’s a Cage (plan of ACTION ’00)
17:02 – Younger Than Neil – Up for Air (la Llorona) (Write New History ’19)
20:03 – Rude Ways – Analog Days (Analog Days ’20)

23min of Ska : Chocolate

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!

01:58 – Rude Boy George – Driving in My Car (Specialized III : Mad Not Cancer comp ’14)
