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!
BAM! When you least expect it, here’s a full on music episode! Time to get down and dance! A lot of newer stuff going down here too! We open up w/ the Shifters, who if you haven’t heard of by now, now you know, and now that you’ve heard them, you love them. It’s cool, it happens to everyone! Love of the Shifters is inevitable. This episode also as Survay Says bringing some awesome ska-punk from their new single and the Suburban Legends hitting us up w/ some pop-ska from their latest album. The Upsessions and the Rotterdam Ska-Jazz Foundation bringing us all some great music from Netherlands and a brand new song from the Loose Ties and their upcoming album. This episode closes out w/ a song from the One Droppers who sadly broke up late last week. You were a great band, the One Droppers, you’ll be missed! Thanks for all the music!
Oh yeah, back with the first new full music episode of 2012! We have a lot here! A bunch of newer songs and a bit of older stuff thrown in. I mean we go way back w/ some Desmond Dekker before speeding up to some late 90’s jams from Johnny Socko and the Agents. Then it is a quick stop from Monkey on the way up to the present with the Upsessions and Do It With Malice, two of my favorite more resent bands. And we also get smacked with A Guy Named Guy’s killer new song, that should be an anthem for the new year! Ska music’s not going to die, it just lost it’s direction, now that we have a plan of action, I just want to hear the music’s personality, give me action and some dancing! This is what it all about, new ska, old ska, traditional ska, punk ska, pop ska, super mind-bending hybrid ska! It gets me up in the morning and sets the day right! Hope it does the same for you. It is good to be back!
