Now this is what I'm talking about #skaruminations
@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
