I was wondering if you guys could recommend me some ska bands, I don't know much about ska but I wanted to get my brother a record or two for christmas. I think he likes third wave the most but likes other styles as well. Some of the bands he listens to are:

-Buck-o-nine
-The Toasters
-The Slackers
-Pie Tasters
-Goldfinger

If you could recomend me some similar bands that would be great! Thanks.

The Selecter.... Two-tone ska with a lady singer and rad as hell. Particularly Too Much Pressure.

It appears to be virtually impossible to get the Selecter's Too Much Pressure as a download or even as a CD. I have no use for vinyl. What's the next best place to start?

It's available on iTunes if you dare, mang.

If a guy likes more "relaxed" ska, what would you guys recommend? Like, as an exmaple I love the songs "Royal Oil" by the Bosstones and "Brooklyn, Dancing Won't Solve Anything".

Satori, Monkey, Deals Gone Bad, Westbound Train, Go Jimmy Go for more modern bands. For older bands check out The Specials, Madness and the English Beat.

I'm definitely familiar with the latter, but the newer ones, less so. Thanks muchly.

I've only heard a few scattered songs by them but I've liked all of them so far, but I guess never enough to buy their records.

I did recently pick up the By the Rivers album and had it on repeat for about 3 straight days.

That By the Rivers record is so catchy.

I know that most of you don't need any convincing, but let me tell you a story about how great a dude Jeff Rosenstock is.

For background, one of my close friends considers Jeff to be one of her heroes. His music really influenced her over the years. So anyway, she was going to have a birthday party and was unaware that her boyfriend was planning to propose to her. He wanted it to be a grand surprise so he reached out to Jeff and asked Jeff to record a video of himself playing a song. The plan was at the end of the song Jeff would be like "Turn around!!" and the boyfriend would be there with the ring to do the whole proposal thing.

Jeff, being the raddest guy alive, agreed to do it. So I was asked what my friend's favorite song would be. I wasn't 100% sure but I I figured Sanawon would be a pretty good bet. I was just afraid that Jeff wouldn't want to play a Bomb song. He did it anyway since, again, he's loving awesome.

Fast forward to last night. The video gets played and she's loving stoked because there's a personalized video from Jeff Rosenstock playing her favorite Bomb song (Turns out it is Sanawon. Nailed it). The video comes to a close with a sign that says to turn around and everyone in the video yelling for her to turn around.

So yeah, she's engaged now and Jeff helped make it happen.

This is loving amazing.

They popped out of my playlists. When I tried to play one I had queued up I got "This track is not available in the United States" so I dunno if it's just America or what.

But yeah, no matter what your thoughts on Tom are, no band deserves to get hosed by a label

Especially not Victory, who tend to gently caress people pretty thoroughly. Although I suspect there are stories from the major 90's alt-rock/punk boom that would put their tactics to shame. I'm sure Steve Albini knows a few.

Jeff's doing a cool thing where if you bought a ticket to a show on the upcoming tour, you take a picture of the ticket to show you bought it for (with you in the picture), email an address with an attachment of the pic to the address he has on his tumblr/facebook, and request a song. Then, you can go to a google spreadsheet and see what songs were requested for that tour date. I requested "That's When I Reach For My Revolver" for the Toronto show.

Here's the the link to his tumblr if you're gonna partake http://greatmovieideas.tumblr.com/

My idea was probably Hell of a Hat, 7 Ways to Sunday, or A Little Bit Ugly. I figure that those seem the most JEFF to me

Those would be cool too. I'm the only person who voted for the gig I'm attending so far, it'd be weird if I got what I wanted by default, but the show's not until 12/3.

Looks like he'll playing "Radio" by Alkaline Trio tonight unless an 11th hour vote comes in for "Angeles" by Elliot Smith or "Misery Business" by Paramore...

Ska lover checking in. I casually listened to some of the basic, entry-level bands back in high school and found it energetic and fun. Never really dove deeper until I started playing in a ska band in college. Since then I've gravitated towards much harder stuff with some ska-like elements (Choking Victim, Ninjaspy, Propagandhi, etc.), but you can totally win me over with a nice Skatalites record.

Also, Streetlight Manifesto. I know some people don't consider them ska because of the general lack of upbeats and fedoras but god drat what a band.

Have you given the Mad Caddies a try?

^^ Very few artists would sing a song about dancing on a prime minister's grave a couple of months after they died, but he did?


Did he have any reason for doing it?

Jeff's got a thing going where you send an email with a photo of you with your ticket, where you can request a song to cover. Most votes wins, tie broken by whoever it is in the band's turn it is his bassist's twitter is any indication

I think Jeff's decency as a man motivates those who like his music to like him even more. I know that's how it works with my fandom. I can see how that grates on those who aren't interested. Conversely, if you're not into his stuff, the fact he's a nice guy probably doesn't much matter.
