23min of Ska : Mandarin’s Jade

23skaaxeI debated if I should write out any kind of description at all for this episode. I almost didn’t finish it. I’ve been battling a headache all day, and of course headphones and music doesn’t suit that. It was also tough because due to the headache I kept wanting to go more laid back, but in my heart I wanted to go more aggressive, so I think a balance was struck. The world needs music, I intend to keep trying to bring some to you all.

23min of Ska : Regenesis

23skaREGENESISYa can’t keep a good podcast down! 23min of Ska hitting back at you after another long week. Get prepped for that weekend, it’s gonna be fun and relaxing one. At least I hope so for your sake. We all need a respite after these last few weeks, right? Now, I’m never one to warn people away from the show, but if you’re not a ska/punk fan, eeeeee, this might not be the episode for you. Certainly there’s some straight up ska in here, but there’s some ska/punk that’s rather heavy on the punk, and just heavy in general. That’s a fair warning: this podcast plays both kinds of music, ska & ska/punk. Deal with it.
