23min of Ska : the Mossburg Music Special!

23skaMOSSBURGI first became aware of Mossburg Music when I was working w/ the Georgetown Orbits. They really seemed to be a quality label. Later on, I got to know Billy Geoghegan, the founder of Mossburg. He was a great guy, to talk with in general, about running a label, about ska and about this great country. Mossburg isn’t confined to a specific area, because Billy isn’t. Wherever he goes he brings that Mossburg magic and manages to crank out a few releases. The label has been around in fits and spurts for some time, and I for one really hope that it continues on!

23min of Ska : In Mid October…

Time for things to get a little darker… a little more… interesting… time for… ska! To be fair, it is always time for ska, and this week is no different. Another great selection of ska from around the world! While most of these bands are American based, we have 65 Mines Street checking in from France and Bombskare banging it out in Scotland. We also have a quick check in from the 90s, with the over looked Bim Skala Bim and a Save Ferris track from their over looked second full length. Also a song from Big D & the Kids Table that was recorded for “For the Damned, the Dumb & the Delirious” but is just being released now, a song from the ever awesome Bashments and rounding it out is the Independents, the best ska band to listen to as we enter the Halloween season!

65 Mines Street – Nite Shot (65 Mines Street ’10)
Big D & the Kids Table – Born on the Edge (Built Up from Nothing ’12)
Bim Skala Bim – Set Me Up (Eyes and Ears ’95)
the Bashments – Black Widow (the Bashments ‘ 11)
Bombskare – Force Ten from Navarone (Fistful of Dynamite ’09)
Save Ferris – Your Friend (Modified ’99)

23min of Ska : And Also Featuring

What do we all need. Ok, except for food, drinks and good music, what do we all need? Friends, that’s right, friends. So why do anything alone when we can do it with some good friends. And if we have enough, why not call over a few more? That’s exactly what was happening here, some great groups producing some great music with that little something extra. That is, an extra special guest on the song.
