    I've loved ska before I

    even knew what it was. My favorite song is keasby nights and my favorite band is the holophonics although reel big fish make amazing videos . The offsprings branch into ska isn't bad either. And just to tie the whole playlist together I put in some cage the elephant and some old...

    The Word Ska

     The moment when the trumpet and brass mounts on the air, and climbs, and overtakes, and is, is amazing. It's powerful. I love it. I want the world to be overtaken with something like that, and everyone shivers, and everyone looks up and everything is better like ska.

    Ska Changed My Life.

    When I was 14, I was going through a really hard time in my life. Someone started a rumor at my school that I was gay (not true), and no one would shut up about it. My life felt like crap.Then, I was watching Cold Case. One episode (Revenge) had The Impression That I Get as the...

    The Ska revival of about 1980 was fabulous,

    but, more importantly, it introduced me to the world of Trojan Records and the like. I was at school with Dave Wakeling from the (English) Beat, although he would not remember me, and I love to see the Selecter and Ranking Roger still touring.

    One Step Beyond

    One step beyond (by Madness) is my all-time favourite ska song. I prefer ska that is medium paced with a really crisp brassy sound. The punk end of ska is not my favourite. I also try to mix ska with some other kinds of music like celtic dance music and worship songs at church...

    Alright!

    there's nothing better than the feeling of fast-paced trumpet and the sound of swagger in a voice shouting something you feel like you understans. ska is beautiful, quick, insane. it changes up my mood, it switches up my life. ska can make anything better.

    Ska Is Cool.

    Hence the name, I love ska. There is absolutely nothing else like it. I feel in love with it the first time I heard it. I didn't really know much about it until I saw Big D and The Kids Table a couple of years ago and from then on, the rest is history. I've been...

    First Intro To Ska

    I was dating a girl at the time who's older sister was dating the lead singer of a local Texas ska band named The Suspects. I'm fairly picky about my music tastes, but this particular band blew the doors off of any "suggested" or advised music other people had given me. After...

    There's More to Life, There's More to You, There's More That Meets the Eye

     My favorite ska album, well not just ska, my favorite album of any genre of music, is Keasbey Nights as performed by Catch 22. I like Streetlight's version, the added horn sections/solos are great, I just think it sounds too produced (I'm not putting down Streetlight, they...

    The Bastard Suns Have Amazing Ska Music

    I've always loved Ska, with some of my faves being Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish & Mad Caddies. But a few months ago I discovered Bastard Suns. They're like Irish Punk & Ska mixed together. Such a sweet sound & really fun party songs! They were supposed to come to my city...

    Ska Resurgence?

    I've loved ska since I first heard Op Ivy and MMB back in the early 90's....but are the 90's back? I've notice a pickup of ska bands popping up and (even better!) there's 3 major shows here in around a month. Toasters/Ruder than You, Pietasters/Spring Heeled Jack/Pilfers and the...

    Why I Love Ska

    I love all kinds of music. This summer I was in the middle of Northern Ontario, in a tiny-*** town, and somehow ended up witnessing one of the best ska shows of my life. I bought the CD and listened to it all the time while I was driving, or walking to work, or sitting around the...
