23min of Ska : Bear Claw

If you can’t stand it, go change it. If you see someone hurting, do what you can to help them. Don’t sit there, exercise your compassion for your fellow man. Always be moving forward, stagnation breeds destruction.

23min of Ska : Envy

23skaENVYOk, I’ll admit, I tried my hardest to keep these episodes on theme for each of the seven deadly sins, but, man, Envy was way to hard. Maybe a few songs fit, but really not that much. I at least tried to use song titles that seem like they should be about envy, even when they’re not really in the end. There were some other good songs, but I’d already used them in previous episodes, I’m envious of those episodes for using those songs for no reason when they could’ve been saved for this podcast, if I had this idea earlier!

23min of Ska : Living on the Edge

23ska-redplaidHere we go with another awesome episode of 23min of Ska. There is some pretty fresh tracks on this one! Green Room Rockers cover of “Wagon Wheel” from their Ska is Dead II 7″, as well as “They Say” from the reunited Inspecter 7! Not to mention the final song here from Johnny Cakes & the Four Horsemen of the Apocalpso, I don’t think that album has even come out yet! The rest of these songs are from bands I’ve just recently got into, the whole album from the Pandemics is great and I don’t know how I’ve been missing the Amalgamated for the last few years. Finally for the first time I’m playing some bands with ska puns in their names… but the Good Skamaritans and Abraskadabra were just too good to pass over!

Green Room Rockers – Wagon Wheel (Career Opportunities / Wagon Wheel ’12)
