23min of Ska : Peach Rings

23skaPEACHRINGSBack at it with some more ska for you, in fact, a whole 23 minutes worth! Can you believe it! So this episode is kinda laid back but is also all over the place. One of the few rules I have for this podcast is that a song has got to have some ska beat in it somewhere. Do all of these songs do that? They sure do! Is that beat through-out the duration of each song? Sure isn’t. Ska is the beat, if it’s got the beat, I’ll play it on the show. Can it be surrounded by a lot of other stuff? Yup. Can it wildly deviate from the beat at times? I’ll allow it. Wait, isn’t it some of this stuff just straight up rocksteady? Shut your dirty mouth, I sometimes play rocksteady, accept it.

00:00 – Boss Riot – Sad for You (Lace Up Straight ’18)
03:17 – the Jinkies – Something New (the Jinkies ’97)
05:56 – Scotch Bonnets – Another Saturday Night (Come on Over ’19)

15:53 – Flying Racoon Suit – Nothing’s Changed (Static Home ’19)
18:57 – the Skluttz – Rapunzel (Sweet and Sour ’19)
