23min of Ska : God Loves, Man Kills

23skaGODLOVESWell… I tried my damnedest to stick to the topic at hand, but it got a little too depressing. Also, this one got pretty reggae-y, which is usually not my style, but everything fit so well! I guess a few more songs about unity could’ve been in order, but I’ve played so many of them before. I feel bad that I’d also already used the Smoke Like a Fish song “God Loves, Man Kills” on an episode last Summer! Also of note, the final song on here is by the Uninvited, they’re not a ska band at all, but have played a few ska tracks here and there, this track is obviously one of them.

23min of Ska : Welcome to the Now

23ska-redplaidHere we go! Music, music, music! Ska, rocksteady, ska/punk and even some reggae edging stuff… why? Because it is awesome, it is all awesome! I remember the goals I set for the show for last Summer and I eventually lost my way, but now I’m back, and I’m going to make it a priority, more small bands, more tent pole bands, more non-USA bands and a bigger variety of bands. Basically get out of my rut of just playing 90’s Midwest ska and my friends’ bands. Another new thing is that I’m going to be linking to places to get the songs that you hear on the podcast (whenever possible) in addition to the the band’s website on 23Ska.com. So go get those songs if you enjoy them! To the bands out there, keep being awesome, to the listeners out there, thanks for hanging in there! Let’s make 2013 another great year for ska music!
