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 : 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)
09:11 – the Georgetown Orbits – Holding the Key (Third Rock Steady ’14)
13:45 – the Screw-Ups – Don’t Care Much (EP ’13)
16:44 – the Boss Beats – Foolish (III ’12)
20:17 – the A-OKs – Anarchy in the Pre-K (Funemployment Benefits ’14)
