23min of Ska : the Coming Four Horsemen

23skaHORSEMENThe theme is the end. The Apocalypse is an end. The horsemen come and herald the end. The theme for this episode is fours and endings. I didn’t think about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse until I was trying to think of a better name for this episode than “Nothing Lasts Four Ever” and now I feel I wasted a perfectly good theme. Well… maybe I’ll come back to it some day… I mean… I’m not really going to end 23min of Ska am I?

23min of Ska : Keep All Your Secrets Undercover

23skaSOAPWhen building yourself up, don’t forget to keep part of yourself to yourself. Your ego is only scaffolding that eventually needs to be removed so you can shine, but you can’t give everything away. We all need our secrets. We need that little part of us to keep inside our heads that makes us, well, ourselves. Remember that, remember your core, what defines you, it isn’t anything that external, and it is hard to explain, but don’t lose it. That being said… here’s a bunch of cover songs for you! Yay! And yeah, two Operation Ivy covers, so what, they’re both good, deal with it.

the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Rudie Can’t Fail (Burning London : the Clash Tribute ’99)
the Pepper Pots – Be My Baby (Shake It! ’07)
the Pinstripes – Holiday (the Holiday Sessions Vol. 3 ’11)
Sammy K And the East Los Three – Bankshot (Dale la Bota ’13)
the Holophonics – Making People Normal (MaSKArades Vol. 3 ’13)
the Amphetameanies – This Boy (Now! That’s What I Call the Amphetameanies ’06)
Save Ferris – Artificial Life (Orange County’s Punk Vs. Ska: Round One ’97)
the Frits – Concrete Jungle (Spare Shells : a Tribute to the Specials ’00)

Time for things to get a little darker… a little more… interesting… time for… ska! To be fair, it is always time for ska, and this week is no different. Another great selection of ska from around the world! While most of these bands are American based, we have 65 Mines Street checking in from France and Bombskare banging it out in Scotland. We also have a quick check in from the 90s, with the over looked Bim Skala Bim and a Save Ferris track from their over looked second full length. Also a song from Big D & the Kids Table that was recorded for “For the Damned, the Dumb & the Delirious” but is just being released now, a song from the ever awesome Bashments and rounding it out is the Independents, the best ska band to listen to as we enter the Halloween season!

23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : Side A (part two)

Even more mid to late 90s ska excitement. Still in mix cassette form. As near as I can get in this digital age at least. This is the second half of the first side and maybe some of the names aren’t as big as were on the last one, but they run just a deep in my musical life as any of the rest. Heck, four of these bands I’ve seen live a hand full of times and they always brought the fun. Back when there was a ska show, just about every other week (where I grew up at least) bands that brought the house down live were what you wanted to go see, no questions asked, that’s what it was all about. A band just needed to get that crowd dancing, with punky excitement or steady grooves, it mattered not. If there were more people on the dance floor than standing with their arms crossed around the edges, if there were more soak through suits, dresses and t-shirts than there was dry, if there was hardly any barrier between the band and the crowd, well, you went and bought their tape or CD, you kicked in a few extra for some after show beers and you made sure to see them the next time they were near.

Johnny Socko – Vinnie’s Hooch (Oh, I do Hope it is Roast Beef! ’95)
the Articles – Mr. Pink (Flip F’real ’97)
the Insteps – Don’t Ask (Eleven Steps to Power ’96)
the NY Citizens – Boxer Shorts (the Rude Awakening 2 comp ’90)
the Aquabats! – Marshmallow Man (the Return of the Aquabats! ’96)
the Robustos – Don’t Stay Away (Introducing… ’97)
Save Ferris – Sorry My Friend (Introducing… ’96)

This is part two of a 90min ska mix tape from the nineties running each Thursday throughout May.

23min of Ska : And Also Featuring

What do we all need. Ok, except for food, drinks and good music, what do we all need? Friends, that’s right, friends. So why do anything alone when we can do it with some good friends. And if we have enough, why not call over a few more? That’s exactly what was happening here, some great groups producing some great music with that little something extra. That is, an extra special guest on the song.

23min of Ska : California

K-Swiss shoes declared it “California Music Month” in April on some ad I saw on late night television, so I said “I’ll run with it!” That’s right, all these bands are from my new found home of California. Had to kick it off with Op Ivy, had to, hands down, no other way to do it. Some of these songs get very far away from ska, but in the end Slow Gherkin, the Aquabats and Voodoo Glow Skulls still bring the goods. The After Hours toss in a nice traditional sound for all the sticklers out there. And try as I might, I still love the pop ska of Save Ferris.

If you’re in a ska band and would like to be featured or if you know some music that you think I should hear for future inclusion, please email me at radjose[at]gmail[dot]com!
