23min of Ska : Malted Milk Balls

23skaMALTEDMILKBALLSWhat a bear of an episode! Ten songs crammed into only twenty-three minutes! And it’s kicking off with a brand new song from Catbite? Woah! Can you go wrong? No sir or ma’am, you cannot. To be honest, this is a crazy one… mostly because the ska in some of these songs is either a little hidden or only comes in for short bits. So yeah, these aren’t all ska songs, but they all have ska bits somewhere in them. Some of these songs are some of my favorite songs! I understand if you get a bit put off by this episode, ska/punk isn’t everyone’s bag. But this episode, I like this episode and I hope that you do, too.

23min of Ska : Caramel

23skaCARAMELWhat I loved about ska shows back in the mid-’90s was that you really didn’t know what you were going to get. A more traditional ska band, a ska/punk band that was more punk than ska, a 2 Tone revival sounding band, a ska/punk band that was more ska than punk, a band with 4 members, a band with 10 members, a band full of high schoolers or a band full of actual adults! It really was all over the map like that, and the thing that brought those bands to our towns and the crowds to the venues was the ska that was at the center, in some way, of it all. This episode represents that love of all things ska that I had as a young man encountering shows not knowing exactly what I was going to see, but at the same time knowing that I was going to dig it!

Also, check this out! This episode kicks off with a brand brand new song from the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble from their forthcoming album “Break Thru” (click the link for the pre-order), followed by a song of the latest release from Joker’s Republic before moving on to a new song from the Pomps that will be the lead track of their new EP “Drums and Liars” due out next month.

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)
09:14 – Simple Minded Symphony – Widow’s Watch (Arrival ’18)
12:31 – Skaos – After Midnight (Beware! Skaos… is Approaching! ’88)
15:53 – Flying Racoon Suit – Nothing’s Changed (Static Home ’19)
18:57 – the Skluttz – Rapunzel (Sweet and Sour ’19)
