23min of Ska : Warning : Parental Advisory : Explicit Content

23Ska-ParentalAdvisorySwearing, it is as old and American as anything else I’ve ever encountered. Sure, the English, Scottish and Irish are more free with their swearing, and the Australians have elevated cussing to a higher art form, but there’s just something about American culture that makes American swearing so interesting to me. I only really remember my pops dropping the F-bomb twice while I was a kid, and that didn’t happen until I was well into high school. The first time was when he couldn’t find his hammers when we were installing new windows on the house. It is such a legend that my little brother does an impression so accurate that you’d think you’re right back in the middle of a hot Midwestern day and the old man has lost his patience with his goofball sons again. When ever Pops hears my brother do the impression he turns red with laughter. That’s what inspired this episode, good ole, hardworkin’, Midwest American swearing! OK, fine, not all these acts are American, and only one is from the Midwest, but you know what I don’t give a single one of, right?

the Slackers – Attitude (the Radio ’11)
Less Than Jake – Ask the Magic 8 Ball (Losing Streak ’96)

23min of Ska : To be the King

23ska-bwplaidWhat does it mean to be the King? I’ve heard that it is good. What it means to be a specific king, in this case King Django, it means that it time to release a brand new album in which he is backed by some amazing bands, so go check it out. For the rest of this episode I stuck with some of great bands that are also at the top of their craft to complement this opening track. I just heard of The scandals while putting this ep together and I have to say, I’m a fan! Demon Waffle mounted a successful Kickstarter last year to get us this album and I’m glad they pulled it off! I’ve been hearing about Soul Radics and the Heavy Beat for a while and got to check them out, I hope you are as impressed as I am. I stumbled across Class Action last year and was waiting for the perfect time to slip in a song from their most recent EP. Then to top it all off, a track from the Bosstones, I’m sure you can all agree on how great they are too!

King Django – Career Opportunities (Anywhere I Roam ’13)
The scandals – Break SKA Situation (Break SKA Situation / Smile ’10)
