OT: ska-music, which records/bands should I check out?

Postby cabron » Fri Sep 01, 2006 3:09 pm

found this awesome Japan happening:

very nice! Could you point me into the right direction of finding these kind of ska-music bands as the youtube's band (lots of trumpets, saxofones etc.)?

Appreciated, thanks!

Catch22 :thumb:

But what the hell is this doing on a kiteforum? Maybe try a musicforum?! Use Soulseek and chat with people in the Ska room...

Ahh Ska!

I thought who better to try to answer your question then a fellow "rudie". From listening to that video I've heard that song before before. I want to say it's a cover from Let's Go Bowling but can't be quite sure. So here's a list of some of my favorites.

The Scofflaws
The Slackers
The Toasters
The Skatalites
Toots and the Maytals
Let's Go Bowling
RX Bandits
Less Than Jake
Mustard Plug
Voodoo Glow Skulls - really fast ska-core
Aquabats -ska surfers

Man, theres a ton but that should get you started. Many different styles of ska in that list from Toots who very traditional (and has an awesome live show) to the Voodoo Glow Skulls that are ska on speed. Have fun!

You should check out The English Beat since they practically invented the whole genre.

The original Brit stuff from `79: The Specials, The Selecter, Madness, The Beat and so on. Still magic.
