It's the box, a record, the guest check, the napkin, the menu/lyric sheet, and the magnet. Number 341/1000. "Extra Cheese"

The top of the box is a bit pressed in. None of the perforated tabs are removed or punched through. There is a price tag on the upper corner of $9.98/

If you or anyone is serious I can post photos.

I'd defer to Fateo since he posted first, but yeah I'm interested...I have one, but it's missing the magnet and I wouldn't mind a complete one.

SKA SUCKS

I am unreasonably excited to see Streetlight Manifesto play the entirety of Everything Goes Numb in Baltimore on Saturday. I always love seeing them live, as their horn section is so good, but playing EGN straight through is awesome since I consider it one of my top 5 albums of all time. The icing on the cake is Mephiskapheles as the opener.

Not unreasonable at all. Streetlight has never been surpassed in the genre.

Streetlight is honestly almost its own genre tbh

I saw that show (EGN in full with Mephiskapheles opening). I think Dan Potthast was there too. It was literally in a high school gym, which really contributed to the time-warp feeling of seeing that lineup play those songs.

Any idea if Mephiskapheles is with them for the entire tour?

They're going to be in town in mid-November but no mention on the SM or venue's websites.

I recently listened to an album called Searching for the Young Ska Rebels by a band called the Phoenix City All-Stars, which came out a couple of years ago but which I'm only getting around to now. It's a whole-album cover of the (great) Dexys Midnight Runners debut album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels in a ska style. I thought it was pretty listenable.

Who usually plays keyboards for RBF? I've noticed lots of their songs have these organ parts but they don't have any member who only plays keyboards; do any of them do it or do they usually get studio musicians in?

Scott played keys on all the classics. Discogs says Matt (Appleton) plays them on the rest after Scott left.

There's a couple of good Italian bands, I've always liked Los Fastidios - more of a punk/oi band, but some ska stuff too.

The Basque Country and Spain in general in the eighties and nineties was also an insane goldmine for this type of band.

Kortatu - La Familia Iskariote

La Única Salida

French band Ya Basta! also has a few classics - Kamilia or Ouvrier

On the Dutch side there's Iedereen Zo Jotje (IZJ) and De Hardheid that I remember from the early 2000's.

Today is the 20th anniversary of Why Do They Rock So Hard, which is making me realize that it's about the be the 20th anniversary of pretty much every ska album that I love and I'm old and then I realized that the 20th anniversary of most of them actually passed over the last 18 months

I really think Why Do They Rock So Hard? might be my favorite ska album overall. Almost nonstop winners, so many good tracks on that album.

It's funny, WDTRSH was pretty much my first real 3rd Wave ska album and mostly introduced me to the genre (although I listened to plenty of NOFXish Punk Rock and Madess/Specials 2ndwave beforehand) and WDTRSH introduced me to how much fun 3rd wave could be. I loved every song on that album, but now it seems so popbubblegum poo poo that I don't enjoy it anymore.

huh. so few left in the original lineup at this point--when they got back together in 08 it was p much everyone minus jerry, which was a disappointment given his contributions to the band, but it was still a proper "The Specials" reunion lineup without him. now you wouldn't be able to put together fun boy three with who's left.

I remember getting into the Specials (and the rest of 2 Tone by extension, having initially just been a fan of Madness) back in 2009 when they reformed and performed on Jools Holland and I'd never seen or heard anything like them. Hard to believe it's been nearly a decade since that happened and a shame that they've managed to shed most of the roster again. They're down to Terry, Horace and Lynval now, aren't they? I'm pretty sure they had more of the band together in the Today's Specials era.
