The Aquabats adjusted their kickstarter goal to be much less insane, and have been funded for a new album + mini episodes + a live concert album. There's 3 hours left and they're 50k away from getting a second new album, if y'all wanna contribute to hopefully get it up there.

But on the other hand, lol kickstarter.

They're one of those bands where every record has one or two songs that I really love, but I still can't get too excited about the idea of a new Aquabats album (especially after that last one...)

Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra has "Glorious" out on most platforms now. Came out a while back in Japan I guess? But now it's up on Google Play/iTunes.

I didn't really update about it, but I'm digging it a lot. Also, We Are The Union has their new one coming out soon I think.

Yeah Interrupters' Fight The Good Fight is my pick for best ska record of the year. I love the Bosstones but the new album just isn't sustaining my interest. The Mad Caddies album has some great stuff on it, IMO, but not a start-to-finish winner, and does a cover album even count? They did make a Propagandhi song listenable, which is impressive.

FWIW the Bosstones have always been a hit or miss band when it comes to album releases, and this was definitely the "miss" album after the hit that was The Magic of Youth.

Was it because the only song I heard was the She cover and I thought it was kinda hilarious and not very good vv

If you're implying either or both Pin Points Gin Joints was a flop / was worse than Magic of Youth we will have words

Wow lotta bad opinions in the last few posts.

The Constant is the best song the Bosstones have had post hiatus. It took seeing it live to realize this though. Post hiatus albums go in this order: While We're At It, Pin Points, Magic of Youth. If you disagree, you're probably as silly as that guy things Propagandhi songs aren't listenable.

Mad Caddies Against Me! cover was also cool

Itís almost like taste in music is subjective. Whoída thunk it?

Anyway, youíre all wrong. Bosstones are shot, the Caddies and the Interrupters are the best albums of last year and Tokyo Skapara are awesome.

Today is the 20th Anniversary of Hello Rockview. To mark the occasion, may I suggest we spend the next two pages arguing if it or Losing Streak are better, only to have everyone be wrong when it's revelaed that the answer is actually Borders and Boundaries

For me it's Hello Rockview. I get that the scene tends to like less polished recordings, and there is some really great stuff on Losing Streak and I love it too, but Hello Rockview is great almost from start to finish. I could do without Motto and Richard Allen George... but I like every other track on that album. About half of Losing Streak is great, but I'm not into the other half.

I've had Borders and Boundaries for years, but I don't actually know it that well. I could only identify about 3 songs on it if pushed.

losing streak kicks rear end, but i haven't listened to less than jake in so long if i heard any track from hello rockview right now i'd probably get the same level of nostalgia rush either way

ska seems like it's been in a rough spot the last couple years, huh? would love to hear some new, young bands working with the sound.

All I know about Hello Rockview is it has that Scott Farcus song on it which is also on a split 7" with J Church that I own.

I also for some reason have that LtJ pizza box and have never played the record in it and don't really want the thing.

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.
