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)
the Independents – Bloodline (Do it Again ’08)
