I like everything in music so yes, I like them now. Now I gotta see if the stupid stores around here have any of their albums.

I like Ska, anyone know that music? The girls I know from NY, GA and CO are really into it. They were surprised when I listened to it and were like, "You just like it cause it breaks the ice with girls!" I was like, "No, I actually like it a lot."

It's not that big in NY. Most are into like Hip Hop/Rap. But the girls tend to like it cause it's catchy, they can sing to it, dance to it and it's just good like "party" music.

Technically, they are a 3rd/4th wave ska band. I've been listening to ska since I was little and don't really know how I got into it. Over the years I've seen the Skatalites, the Specials, Hepcat, and a ****load of other ska legends.

Go out and get Dr. Ring Ding and the Senior All Stars. . Dandemite Ska. You boomba ras clot. :whore: Oh, and no collection's complete without Desmond Dekker.

I also like roots reggae, dub, and 80s dancehall/ragga. The best reggae album ever is Black Uhuru, "Red," IMO. Well, maybe aside from the Wailers' "Burnin'," and "Catch a Fire."

JK, Madness was great. They might have the greatest Ska song ever, "One Step Beyond." :smash:

I've seen a lot of those bands, and Mustard Plug a couple times.

Check out Fishbone, maybe Fishbone 101 (compelation CD), Skavoovie and the Epitones, the Scofflaws, Bad Manners, and the Toasters.

I've seen Rancid, but was too young to ever see them. Operation Ivy was incredible. :whore:

Ska was huge in New York, but it's kind of died out ever since the Bosstones, etc, sold out and it got big again in the mid to late 90s. Moon Ska, the largest ska label in New York owned by the lead singer of the Toasters, was based in NYC.

When it was more underground it was very punk, not mainstream. (the original skinheads in England dressed to emulate the rude boys in 60's Jamaica. Skinny black ties, black suits, suspenders, bald heads. Aryan skinheads adopted the look and turned it into something it's not. The black and white checkers you see in a lot of ska logos represent unity between blacks and whites)

Peter Tosh on the left is the epitome of a "rude boy." Bob Marley's in the middle, and Bunny Wailer's on the right.


Laurel Aitken


the Scofflaws (90s NYC ska)

No doubt about it! "My hair looks like pasta, I think I'm a rasta.. I'm fakin' Jamaican." :lol: What happened to Bruce Lee? He did a solo album with Less Than Jake and then fell off the face of the earth.

They had an album where they did a bunch of covers of bands like Bad Brains, etc. I'm gonna have to dig that up.

Trumpet in a ska band would be badazz, that's awesome man.

I see there are others here that appreciate real music that you can actually listen, understand and could possibly dance to without rubbing up and down on someone.

But listening to Ska also got me listening to Jazz now, kinda funny I think.
