Can someone give me a recommendation for what album/s to get into Ska-P?

Planeta Eskoria, and Que Quorra la Voz! are my two favorites, I think they have a better mix of hard rear end rocking songs and bouncy fun songs.

I know it was a couple pages back; but my girlfriend, who is quite good at this sort of thing, thinks that the last Streetlight Manifesto teaser song is a Herb Alpert song.

Any ideas on song 5? SA needs to own Chris Thatcher

Is anyone else slightly disappointed that Streetlight's new album is strictly covers? I mean, I love anything that's new Streetlight, but I love Kalnoky's original songs so much more.

I think everyone would prefer an original album but we will take what we can get. At least it should be more interesting then the Keasbey Nights cover album, which while fun was the same songs slightly faster with shittier mastering. The real question is when will we get a full BOTAR album. Sadly the answer is probably never.

Just found this thread and I have been listening to SKA since the early 90s.

Question: is this song a cover (all SKA songs are covers ), because I love it and need to listen to a non jesus version.

Yep, and yep. My local liquor store is pretty good about ordering things, but the highest abv of their regular brews was 6% and that's just not going to support my alcoholism.


On a more Ska related note - is Catch 22 no longer a band? Their last website or myspace update is at least 2 years old. While, I didn't like their last album Dinosaur sounds was alright, and they were totally kickass live even on the songs that were mediocre.

I thought Permanent Revolution had two good songs, and two ok songs, but overall as an album it was plain old bad. Dinosaur Sounds I like for the most part, the music is solid to great (great being the instrumental) and while the bad songs are just god awful its pretty good and I can just skip the 2 songs i don't like. I think touring for that album was the last time I saw them, or maybe one more time after that with Big D and the Kids Table, and sweet jesus what the gently caress happened to them. I couldn't even make it though the last Big D album.

Are we still talking about bands we miss? (this thread got unmarked WTF with that?) Does anyone remeber STALKING ROXY? they were good, and my cd got scratched to gently caress in the back of my car. God I miss it.

I still have one song on my STILL STANDING comp. Anyone else with that comp is a friend of mine. (4 cds of ska)

Why do all the good ska bands not make it, or turn really lovely, or drop their horns, and the lovely ones do ok?

The first star loving hipsters album was pretty good, I liked it at least.

Im waiting for Big D and the Kids Table to fire their singer or for him to die or something. His halfass talksing terriblness has made the last 2 album unlistenable. Also the lyrics are poo poo.

Weren't most of their earlier songs written by a horn player who left the band?

The long haired sax player? That would make sence. I just keep being surprised by how much i used to love them and how much I completely hate them now. The music isnt that bad either, if they were just instramentles they would improve the new songs 200%

Big D's cover of Iron Maiden's "Iron Maiden."

Honestly, probably just a third of the Metalliska comp.

I just listened to this for the first time. I loathe Big D with a passion, but goddamn this is fun

Have you listened to Good Luck, or The Gypsy Hill ep? Because those were good albums. How it Goes is not very good, and also was mixed/mastered worse than their previous albums, like worse than the albums my friends made using the closet as a studio - I'm still shocked that that is how they chose to release that album. Everything after that is utter poo poo.

Every time I put on Good Luck though I think "Man you know what this isn't? Hello Rockview. I think I'll listen to that instead." and then that is exactly what I do

I think Im one of the only people that doesn't like Hello Rockveiw. I actually prefer Borders and Boundaries to it, although Losing Streak is still my favorite.

Edit: Well the like 8 songs of Borders and Bound that I dont skip

Big D is poo poo now regardless, and there is no way hello rockview is better than Good Luck, or Turn the Radio Off for a third wave ska album.

You should also look into a little band, no longer with us, called No Cash

Back when I ordered my BOTAR sweatshirt it took at least 3 months and I had forgotten I ordered it until they sent an email saying sorry we were on tour and nothing got done. That was back before the Keasby Knights cover album. It seems like things should be running smoother by now.
