That's My Ska

Howdy All,

Thought I'd post as I'd been a member for a while but been busy. I'm East Coast and right now I'm sort of going through an old school, original Ska and Rocksteady phase. Just got four of the Trojan records disk sets and am totally immersed (Reggae Sisters was the last one I picked up).

I got into ska with the Specials, The Selector, Madness...back in the day when MTV was still cool. Rural PA, at the time, was no bastion for decent music and the first time I heard A Messag to You Rudie, I was hooked for life. Didn't hurt that I played trumpet.

Chat with y'all later.

Just noticed nobody has posted to this community in a while. Just thought I'd spout out some random thoughts on things to get this ball rolling again.

First off: Big D and the Kids Table, Strictly Rude. Wow. One of theee greatest albums ever. It had a big old yellow sticker on the front that claimed it as "Alternative Press's pick as most important ska album of the new millenium!" While I may slightly agree with what was said, I disagree with who said it. AP? Really? What do they care about ska? Once I see them ditch Panic! At The Disco in favor of Big D for the cover photo, then I will be more convinced. Until then, keep your scenester nose out of it.

Secondly: Streetlight Manifesto's Somewhere In The Between.....enough fucking said. Wow. This album blew my fat ass away. In my opinion, it tops the accomplishment of even Strictly Rude. Streetlight has developed a sound that is incomparable to any other band of this generation. Their sound is so unique, so different, so perfectly...Streetlight, they deserve a hell of a lot more credit then they are getting.

Just some thoughts for you guys. Please let me know what you think. I dont get to talk about enough ska!!!!

I'm a big fan of Culver City Dub Collective. They have a contest going on now- show your “bad reaction” and you could win a signed Yamaha snare drum, CDs and other cool stuff. They’re pretty funny, check out the reaction of the girl who gets hit w/ a fish lol http://www.brickfish.com/music/culvercity?tab=1&m_CulverCityBadReaction
