    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...

    Skanked The Night Away The Other Night . . .

    I went and saw THE ENGLISH BEAT the other night at "The Waiting Room" a local music venue here in my hometown, Omaha, NE. Awe, it was fun, reliving the nostalgia, and hearing again, the tunes that I was listening to over twenty yers ago. My brother is 10 years younger than...

    Back In the Day...

    The coolest records when I was 16 were The English Beat "Just Can't Stop It" and the first Specials album.

    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.

    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.

    Some of my best experiences were at Ska

    concerts. Most people don't know what ska is but I would love to meet cool people who do, other than from the concerts of course. My most intense one was Streetlight Manifesto where they dropped me one of the times I was crowd surfing! And later on that night three people fell...

    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...

    Streetlight Manifesto

    Streetlight Manifesto is back in town tonight! I haven't missed a Streetlight show in a few years, and every show is always awesome. Last time they covered Linoleum for their encore, and I think every kid in the mosh pit simultaneously shat themselves in joy.  My mom...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
