23min of Ska : Always Double Down on Eleven

23ska-aceThere are certain facts in life. The sun always rises from the East, never drink OJ after brushing your teeth, and most of all, you always double down on eleven (not to mention, always split on eights). Most other advice in life isn’t worth the time it takes to comprehend the words others have spoken, but those 3 (4) hold fast. Don’t doubt them, and use these facts to go forth and conqueror the world. I also wanted to point out that there’s two songs in this episode that are making their world premier, the Pinstripes and the Dropsteppers have a new split 7″ coming out in the next few days, click on the album title for details where to get yr own copy!

23min of Ska : Keep All Your Secrets Undercover

23skaSOAPWhen building yourself up, don’t forget to keep part of yourself to yourself. Your ego is only scaffolding that eventually needs to be removed so you can shine, but you can’t give everything away. We all need our secrets. We need that little part of us to keep inside our heads that makes us, well, ourselves. Remember that, remember your core, what defines you, it isn’t anything that external, and it is hard to explain, but don’t lose it. That being said… here’s a bunch of cover songs for you! Yay! And yeah, two Operation Ivy covers, so what, they’re both good, deal with it.

23min of Ska : Hats Off to Haters

23ska-blueplaidApparently I’ve been going about this all wrong. Ska/Punk music is the devil! I shall cast that evil off of this episode! Get back to the roots! Be a proper ska podcaster! But lo, still I fail. Why? Because I dare to support the modern ska bands that are still out there playing. Is this a problem? To some it seems to be. It won’t stop me and the hate won’t stop them. Join us, as we turn our backs on those who don’t agree. Hell, we have more fun than they do anyway. Rock on my brothers and sisters in ska, rock the eff on.

23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : the ’00s : Side A (part two)

00mixTapeA2And here we are again, still stuck in ’00s, hearing the bright sparks of ska bands that refused to throw in the towel, just because mainstream taste-makers did. I won’t lie to you, during much of the early ’00s, I didn’t abandon ska music, but I got much more insular and into the bands in the Midwest at the time before moving out to LA half way through that decade and trying to catch up w/ the ska that was going on in the world at the time. I feel as if I am still playing catch up, but I loved my local ska bands so much I wanted to give them all the support I could, sorry world ska scene, I’m learning and making up for it now! And this concludes side A of the 90min ’00s mix tape.

the Hijacks – Victim! Ain’t No Alternative (Free Your Mind ’07)
