23min of Ska : the Grover Records Special!

23skaGROVERCards out on the table, Grover is a boss record label! Founded in 1993 by Oswald Münnig, and distributing out of Germany they are as well known for issuing some rad albums but also licensing a lot of great ones too! They’ll help bands from outside Germany and Europe get releases over there, they’ll also issue albums on vinyl when a band’s main label only plans on a CD release. I chose to focus on releases from the main Grover label and releases that were only on Grover or Grover released first, because they co-released and rereleased a lot of great stuff! It’s an embarrassment of fantastic music! Needless to say, Grover has been hooking us all up with great music over and over!

23min of Ska : Red Licorice

23skaredlicorice23min of Ska is back! Back with a new look, back with a new theme and back with a brand new episode! Oh, hells yeah! This is a great one, for sure. I want to point out that the second song is a brand new track from the Anchorage from their new EP due out next month. After hearing this I can’t wait! Of course, that isn’t the only quality track being brought to your ears. We also have some fantastic pretty new songs from the Kingstons and King Kong 4 that have been running through my head. Not to mention that Eric Daino track, which is rad, but so is the whole album! This is all mixed in with quality songs from the Magnetics, Contenders and the Dendrites that must be heard, before ending it with a sweet cover by Half Past Two that, well, I put them up to, and they nailed it!

23min of Ska : Toboggan

23skaCOASTER2Today is going to be a long day.
Longer than the last.
But each year is always going to be impossibly short.

You and everything will be all the better for it.
