23min of Ska : the Homecoming Issue!

23skaHOMECOMINGOh man, it’s that time of year again in the States (or elsewhere as well, I’m a ska fan, not a historian of the world and its celebrations) where people head back to their small towns and take in a football game or whatever and the high school kids are all fretting about the big dance… yup, it’s homecoming season! So yeah, find that old jacket that’s been packed away for decades, blow the dust of the ludicrously expensive class ring, and maybe talk to some of the few cool people you went to school with… you know the ones, the ones in your “Screw the actual “cool” people” club! Yeah, all your friends! I swear, call both of them! It’s Homecoming mother bitches!
