23min of Ska Convoy : TV’s Fine if You Like WGN

23skaTRUCKERconvoyKEVINWash, wash
Washing my troubles away
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Maybe these words ring hollow in our troubled times. Or maybe they hit just right. Either way, I hope the potent mixture of 2 Tone, ska-punk, and Jamaican ska that follows finds your ears well. Within this mix, you’ll find five tunes from four different countries — a reminder that it’s not just COVID-19 that has gone global!

00:00 – the Crombies – Wash Wash (Dance Crazee ’16)
03:22 – Justin Hinds & the Dominoes – Over the River (Over the River / Corner Stone ’64)
05:39 – Lxs Fama – la Reina del Desastre (No Caben más Locos ’20)
08:55 – the Bionic Rats – New Day Rudie (T.B.R. ’16)
11:41 – the Cabrians – Time Map (Sun & Shadow Heroes ’16)
15:14 – the Holophonics – Escape Velocity (Phantom Arrival ’18)
17:24 – Beat the Smart Kids – Emoticons (Broke Again ’16)
19:55 – the Swashbuckling Doctors – Better Than Nothing (Better Than Nothing ’20)

RJ sez: Kevin is one half of the very excellent Windy City Sound System, which is kind of a must-listen podcast! Building on Kevin’s picks, I added the Lxs Fama, Holophonics and Swashbuckling Doctors tracks his already killer line up (and in doing so adding another country to the previous count.) I had the pleasure of meeting Keven and his WCSS co-star at the Jump Up Records 25th Anniversary show a few years back, and I couldn’t be happier then, and I couldn’t be happier now that they’re still in the game creating their show! Cheers to the Windy City Sound System!

23skaBEERSFirst off, thanks to everyone for letting me take a week off! I try not to, but the holidays got to me and I wasn’t able to get my stuff together. Such to the effect that I asked for suggestions on what to play on this episode. I got a TON of responses! But hey, we always have next week to play those! Also, feel free to toss your hat into the ring and suggest songs for the next episodes, because man oh man, I have so much going on that I could use the help. Currently mapping out the next year of 23min of Ska and the Ska After Party and I’m very excited to have you all along for the ride.
