23min of Ska : Vesper Lynd

23skaLYND

Alright Bond fans, I bet you’re all looking at that image for this episode and saying “Why are you calling this episode “Vesper Lynd?” That’s clearly a photo of Honey Rider!” And I’ll say “You’re not wrong… but in reality is a photo of Ursula Andress, who yes, played Honey in “Dr. No” but this is from when played Vesper in the original “Casino Royale,” so there!” Then we can debate if that should be counted as a true Bond movie or not. At any rate, here’s a bunch of fantastic ska music, so listen to that instead of debating me about spy movies, okay? You know these bands all rule, right? So get ta listenin’! Looks like I won this imaginary argument with the power of music. Rad.

23min of Ska : Phalanx Covenant

23skaPHALANXI almost didn’t do this episode. When I was originally going to do this series of episodes I was only going to loosely base the song selection on the title, not the contents of the story. Outside of the comic, this phrase means nothing. But since I’ve tried to hit key story points, or my favorite story moments with the songs, I knew I had to go for it. It turned out pretty damn good! Then again, with bands as great as these, it’s not hard to assemble a great mix of music!
