23min of Ska : Seven Inches

Here’s bunch of songs that I ripped from my seven inch record collection. The one thing I’ve always enjoyed is going to a concert and picking up a seven inch record from a band I just saw. I don’t know if it is because of the delayed time in between buying it and driving home before you can listen to it or if there really IS something special about how vinyl sounds. If you hear any pops or crackle… well, that’s kind of the point.

the Forthrights – Other People (Anywhere I Roam/Other People 7″ ’09)
the Smooths – Fish in My Bed (Kiss the Carnage 7″ ’95)
the Amphetameanies – Good One Go (Nothing’s OK/Good One Go 7″ ’09)
the Articles – Black Eyes (Song of the Volga Boat Men) (Romanov’s Bones 7″ ’96)
David Hillyard & the Rocksteady 7 – Change of Plans (Change of Plans/Esta Tarde 7″ ’09)
the MIBs – MIB (the MIBs 7″ ’96)
Spies on Sabbatical – Inside Out (On Safari with Beat Happy Music 7″ ’95)
the Hotknives – Seaside Skank (Echo Beach/Seaside Skank 7″ ’02)
