23min of Ska : the Jump Up Special Issue!

23skaJUMPUPWelcome back to an all-new session of 23min of Ska! Here’s the first of several episodes this set featuring ska record labels! In doing this I knew, as a midwest native, I had to start out with Jump Up Records! I’ve been running into Jump Up head honcho Chuck for the better part of 20 years. He always has a smile and is happy to talk some ska. Here’s a pretty small sampling of what Jump Up has gotten out over the last several years, there’s so much other great stuff that I couldn’t fit in this episode, but I think it’s a pretty good representation of what I dig about Chuck and Jump Up records!

03:00 – Greenhouse – Too Late (Tomorrow the World ’98)

23min of Ska : I’ll be Waiting

23skaGUNGIRLWe all like ska, right?
I thought as much.
Here’s a bunch of ska mixed with other genres.
Sometimes the ska beat and trappings get a little lost in the mix.
This is fine, it was there for a bit.
We all get lost sometimes, and whether we find our way back or not doesn’t matter, we just need to keep on going.

23min of Ska : Pick Up on Noon Street

23skaFINGERMANWhen I started putting this episode together, I was pretty mellow, I was digging what I was assembling, but I thought it needed some bite. The next day I sat down to “improve” it and I was already angry. I was wasn’t having any of the mellowness of the day before. As I picked and tossed new songs I started finding my way back to a more laid back state. This episode isn’t going after you, but it also isn’t a going to lay down, it shall be heard and you shall dance to it!

23min of Ska : Inferno

23skaINFERNOOh man, I think I could do 2 or 3 episodes based on the “Inferno” story line, and as I type, I’m only about 2/3rds of the way through re-reading it! I am seriously enjoying getting back to the comics of my youth and using it to inform these episodes of the show. I know, it’s a bit of an odd thought experiment for me, but I hope you all are still enjoying the ripping good ska that is being presented!

23min of Ska : the Statue of Zeus at Olympia

23skaZEUSHere it is! Another great twenty three minutes of ska music! Thank the gods of music that such sounds have reached your ears! We’re a week into 2015 and things are off to a decent start for all of you I hope! Seriously, listeners, life is only what we make of it. In our darkest times, if we don’t keep the light inside of us, we will also grow dark. It is easy to be positive when everything is going well, but it is much more rewarding when you can remain positive in the most negative of situations. I think it is called “developing character” or something like that, but it seems like such a meaningless phrase. All I’m saying that is when it is hardest to remain positive that that is the time when you need to make yourself positive.
