Resolutions for 2020: fuck youtube, fuck spotify. Buy music from artists directly or from local record stores. Listen to the radio, CDs/LPs from the library

This is cool, I don't think I have ever heard my friend's band on the radio before

OK I don't know if this (intern) job will be "fun" or "cool" but maybe someone here would be stoked to do it.

So sleepy. Supposed to meet a friend tonight but it's going to be a struggle

Anyway who wants to go see Antibalas with me in Feb? They're playing in Oakland at The New Parish

It is fucking 2020 and motherfuckers are still trying to break my back button, wtf

Tired: storing chips in fridge

Wired: storing chips in your reflow oven

@swirlz Again speaking of contrasts I count Let's Go Bowling as one of the best shows I have ever seen, there were like eleven people on stage and most of them had horns of some kind. Hepcat was similarly awe inspiring, and in fact may have been the opener that night, I don't remember

Fishbone of course being a singular band of contrasts. There are a few songs of theirs that land squarely in the ska vein and I believe are among the best examples of that genre. The rest of their work I am kind of lukewarm on quite honestly, and the one time I saw them live they were terrible.

Brought to you by exhumed feelings about ska, so in a way you have @swirlz to thank

This toot brought to you by overhearing a 30th anniversary party for The Ska Parade, which was originally a radio show which was right before my Sunday afternoon slot at KUCI in the 90s

That guy was a really good DJ and he was super active in the scene but boy did he go overboard on the cologne, the mics were saturated every week and difficult to get near

Just for the record, when I hear "ska" I think mostly of Roland Alfonso, Desmond Dekker, Baba Brooks and so forth. There is a guy who does a 50s/60s ska segment on KFJC once per week and it rules.

I like 2-tone stuff a lot too, and even some third wavey (or whatever wave we're on now) bands but all that stuff is pretty different than the originals. I have lots of thoughts about this
