23min of Ska : Mix Tape : the ’10s Side B (part 2)

MixTape00-SideBPart2…And we’re at the finale! Woo hoo! You’ve lived through the 2010s via ska music, once again! We’re closing it out with another load of fantastic tracks! Most of these are songs I was surprised to find that I hadn’t played earlier for all y’all!

So, let’s get real… I’ve done these “mix tapes” for the 1960s – 2010s now, I’ve done 18 sets of 23 episodes for a total of 414 episodes, and there’s a handful of episodes over at GeekNerdery that I’ve done (but I repeat songs on that one… so… it’s not “cannon?”) and I’ve tried various interview shows over the years (the most recent being “the Ska After Party” and if you’re up for it, I’m still doing that with co-host Matt Vest on “On the Upbeat”), so it begs the question… where do I go from here with 23min of Ska? Is there still gas left in the tank? I sure hope so! I have some ideas, hopefully you’ll come along with me, but do me a favor, tell your ska loving friends about this show… Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of folks saying “Hey check out this band, I just discovered them!” and I’m all “WHAT! I’ve been playing them for years, because that BAND IS AWESOME!” I just want to spread all the ska love, help me out here, eh? Thanks, and I’ll see you all next week!

23min of Ska : Spanish Blood

23skaGUNGIRLCan’t lie, won’t lie, this episode started out, well, as a pretty regular 23min of Ska episode… then I thought “with a title like “Spanish Blood” I should at least get some Spanish in this episode.” Then things took a turn for the better, or rather, a turn for the awesome. I hope you dig it, I enjoyed digging into some artists that while I was familiar with, I never had taken the time to get to know a lot better, so I got to know them to get this great bunch of songs together! Thusly, we all benefit!

23min of Ska : Liquor is Quicker

I’ve been paying attention my little listeners, you all seem to like ska from the 90’s, female vocals, ska-punk and music from the US, Canada and the UK. This I can do. So I’m working it in more as we go on. I still gotta play what I love and that is newer ska from everywhere and some traditional ska, so let’s get this in balance! We have some awesome UK ska here from Bombskare, a track from one of my favorite LA bands, the Bohunks (who always tear it up live) and a song from the Kim Basinger Band who I found out about on the r/ska forum on Reddit. Not a bad place to hang out and find new bands. From Spain w/ have some traditional sounds from the Hypocondriacs, some radness from Canada in the form of Class Action and then Run and Punch, who are not only a great band, but some of the nicest guys to be in contact with. We close it out w/ Goldfinger’s “Walking in the Dark” a song that was almost lost in time in the 90’s on a movie soundtrack that most people didn’t seem to pick up (seriously, I had a hard time tracking it down again). So as we head into the second half of 2012 “23min of Ska” has re-focused and is committed to bringing you the sounds that you want to hear mixed the ones that I want to play for you. Let’s keep kickin’ ass ’til December!

Bombskare – My Life in the Nineties (Fistful of Dynamite ’09)
the Bohunks – Dillinger (In the Waiting Room ’11)
the Kim Basinger Band – Meeting You Again (Between Sin & Sanity ’06)
Hypocondriacs – Cook ’em Up (60’s Rocksteady & Reggae ’10)
Class Action – City Streets (Class Action ’10)
Run and Punch – Dearly Departed (Dearly Departed ’12)
Goldfinger – Walking in the Dark (Dead Man on Campus soundtrack ’98)
