23min of Ska : Ube

23skaUBELife is short. Don’t spend it making yourself miserable. Or by making other miserable. Do what you want, but harm none. You know. We only get one shot, are you going to give yours away? Or impede on others? What’s the point? Fulfilling your own greed only makes you think your happy for so long. Try kindness. Try making things for the world. When your time is up in this life, it will be remembered, and you will essentially live beyond your short time alive.

23min of Ska : Coconut

Alright, let’s get down to it. It’s been a long week. We all need to celebrate the fact that we’ve just about wrapped up another one. Things can suck, oh they surely can! But we can’t let that stop us. All the craziness and horror going on around us, we have to push through it. We have to fight it. If dancing and ska music help you, then you’ve come to the right place.

23min of Ska : I’ll be Waiting

23skaGUNGIRLWe all like ska, right?
I thought as much.
Here’s a bunch of ska mixed with other genres.
Sometimes the ska beat and trappings get a little lost in the mix.
This is fine, it was there for a bit.
We all get lost sometimes, and whether we find our way back or not doesn’t matter, we just need to keep on going.

23min of Ska : the Level of Your Consciousness

23ska8BALLThere is so much going on day to day to be conscious of everything that is going on. There is so much more awareness that each of us need just to get by, or at least get by being fully informed that is. This is something we can all strive for, and achieve, but we always must be aware of the pitfalls of thinking we’ve got how the world works all figured out. We don’t, we never will, we need to find our place in it and remember why we are where we are at, and if that needs to change, we change it. We can do this, make the planet better, but we always need to be meta-conscious of ourselves.

Oh, and hey, this first track is by the very excellent the Duppies and they’re trying to raise some cash for their new album. This is the title track, if you dig it, there’s more of it to come! Toss down for some great music: http://kck.st/1NfUHaM

23min of Ska : Trust is Under Valued

Trust can take a long time to build up and can be destroyed very quickly. That’s kind of the theme that’s going on here. Hopefully I have your trust each week to take you on a fun little ska journey each week and introduce you to great bands from today and the past. I hope that you trust me enough to always be picking great bands from around the world that play the ska. And I trust that all of you are entertained.

23min of Ska : Power, the Energy and the Upbeat

23ska roofHere’s a fat bunch of ska, rocksteady and ska/punk to fill your ears with! A bunch of great songs! Kicked off with a lost-ish/obscure-ish tune from Goldfinger followed by a song that I’ve never been able to shake out of my head from the Forthrights that I was shocked to find I hadn’t previously played on the podcast. Then there’s an older song from the Amphetatmeanies while I wait for their latest album to finally come out! Speaking of new albums, I’ve included a song from the Georgetown Orbits’ new album that should be coming soon! Then we have the Screw-Ups, who are a great band, so check out their EP, every song on it is great! The Boss Beats were a local act out of L.A. that I got to see and I loved them, but they are no longer together, still the music lives on in my heart and on this podcast. We wrap up w/ a song that I’ve had for a while, but misplaced, so thanks to the A-OKS for being so patient, a great group of guys and providing a killer song to boot! I haven’t done a song breakdown like this in a while. I usually refrain from it, as I find it a little dry in some respects, but I understand that not everyone wants to read my take on the philosophies of life like I usually put up.

00:00 – Goldfinger – Seems Like Yesterday (Meet the Deedles soundtrack ’98)
02:55 – the Forthrights – Lord I Pray (the Forthrights ’12)
06:09 – the Amphetameanies – Life without You (Right Line in Nylons ’00)

16:44 – the Boss Beats – Foolish (III ’12)
20:17 – the A-OKs – Anarchy in the Pre-K (Funemployment Benefits ’14)
