Even though I look back on a lot of my ska collection and scoff, Telegraph and Animal Chin are still two of my favorite bands of all time. They both started out at straight up ska bands but morphed into hybrids that were much more interesting.

I guess that's the rub for ska with me. Having played in a ska band or two, and having liked the music for several years, I can say that the most likely reason ska has gone back underground is that it's a very limiting genre - both for the bands and the listener. You can only tweak the sound it so much without it changing from a ska song into something else. I think that's why so many bands abandoned the traditional offbeat sound after coming out with a CD or two...they just got bored.

Don't get me wrong, I'll fire up my Slapstick CD in my car with the windows down when it's a nice day, but when I want a quiet Sunday night listen, I'm reaching for something else with more depth.
