Ok, well, this week’s episode wasn’t supposed to be this week’s episode. I don’t know when I was going to make an episode like this next, but it wasn’t in my plans. Then the Pomps had to go and release a new and fantastic EP last week and inspire this! Next week I’ll get back with the plan, but this week… this week had to come NOW!

Everyone knows that ska was created in Jamaica, but ska’s second home was Britain. Again, a fact that most ska fans know. The fun part about Great Britain is that island still is producing some of the best ska around. Here’s a small sample of these great bands! Be they English, Scottish or Welsh, they are putting out some great, great sounds!
“Luck is for Losers” is a phrase my wife has been saying a lot lately. It’s totally true. We make our own luck. If you don’t put yourself in the right place at the right time you’ll never even have that chance to “be lucky!” Luck had nothing to do with it, you made the choices in life that lead to such good fortune. About half the bands in this episode took it upon themselves to send me a message about their band and maybe a few songs, the other half I was lucky enough to stumble upon. The former made their own luck, the latter I consider myself lucky to have found. It’s a big, crazy world out there, don’t waste your time, get out in front of it and make your “luck” happen.
Life is some kind of crazy adventure, if you’re not out there living it, what is the point of living? If you’re going to do anything, do it to the hilt! Live large. Why not? Why not start living that way today? Just keep your ego in check and you be as big a deal as you want to be!
