I personally would recommend Hello Rockview and Losing Streak. Anthem if you want a slightly poppier sound.

I'd also recommend Borders & Boundaries, and the newest one, GNV FLA. Anthem & In with the Out Crowd are super poppy, but GNVFLA is a lot more upstroke and horn based.

I dunno. Good songs and all, but I just can't get into the slow, acoustic vibe of them. Which is, I think, why I started listening to ska in the first place.

Haha no poo poo? Where do you live? I used to see the Superspecs all the time, and I used to see the lead singer (Brad?) when he was working at Sam Ash, I still see the drummer from when they were the Superspecs every so often, working at the UPS store in Ramsey.

The Declaration of Independence is pretty much perfection in EP form. It was really a shame to see them break up.


Project HANDSOFF was even better, definitely one of my favorite albums throughout high school.

Not sure if this belongs here, but Bouncing Souls and The Loved Ones put on a fantastic show tonight in New Haven, CT.

Well worth the hour and a half drive down from Providence.

Agreeing with this. Saw them last night in Boston, going to see them again tomorrow night at the same venue.

Void Union is pretty good. Chick singer, slower songs. I think the singer is dating one of the horn players from Big D, too (at least I see them together all the time).

It's on their purevolume. In other news WATU signed with Paper or Plastick records (drummer from Less Than Jakes label) and they're doing a bunch of touring so check em out if you get a chance. Even if one of their tours is interfering with me getting dates booked for one of ours. Jerks.

What's your band?

Whoa jeez you guys weren't kidding. While it's not terrible music, it's definitely not what I expected to hear from Big D. Doped Up Dollies sounds like an MIA song for pete's sake.

So I think Tomas thinks I'm an rear end in a top hat. He went by on his bike as we were leaving the Warped Tour, and I yelled his name, but I pronounced it like Thomas, and then realized I wasn't sure, so I yelled an apology too. Is it Thomas or Toe-mas?

The trumpet player for the Spitvalves now plays in the Supervillians, who are a lot different but still totally awesome (most of the time).

You know, I saw them open for RBF and the English Beat and I was really blown away. They kick a lot of rear end, especially live.

You know, I was doing the math:

Round trip from Boston to NYC - $30
Tickets for both NYC dates and the Boston date - ~$60

90 bucks to see them 3 nights in a row? That is extremely doable.

Streetlight posted some news

Basically, "Just a little bit longer and then the break, we won't be touring as much after the break but we'll still tour a lot, and oh yeah we're doing something cool at the Jersey show"

Nothing new

I'm missing this cool thing at the Jersey show, and the playthroughs of the albums in NY...I hope the Boston show isn't like their recovery period from that stuff or something.

I could use it. The only email I've gotten is from the Bosstones with a code to download the free song. Unless that code is the same as the ticket code. Was it "presale"?

The HoB presale never happened. However they released a bunch of presales on their site, no password!

Hello there everyone. Let's jump straight into it, shall we?

1) 99 SOR. We're being buried with emails regarding the release date but we can't announce one because we don't know when it is. What we can say is this: some record labels (not naming names here, so it can't be "libel") are just plain horrendous. That's pretty much all we can say for now. Seriously though, it's a sad fact that the bullshit bands have to put up with from some labels isn't worth the benefits (ha!) of being on said labels.

That being said, it looks like 99SOR: Volume One will be released on vinyl via the Pentimento Music Company long before it comes out on CD or digitally. Stay tuned for a release date for the vinyl. We'll also be posting clips from the record in the next few days, along with artwork, since it is in fact finished and just sitting around (you have no idea how frustrating it is).

2) People are also asking when we'll be hitting the road again. We have no tours planned as of this very minute but we are planning our 2010 now. More importantly, though, we will be heading into the studio soon (as is a particular electricity deficient collective..) and we don't plan on touring until we have a few records to release.

3) The Risc Store just got a bunch of new items, Streetlight and otherwise. 'Tis the season yada yada blah blah blah..

4) During our downtime, our resident tenor sax genius will be giving lessons. Straight from the Conti's mouth:

Jim Conti will be offering saxophone lessons along with music theory tutoring/instruction in the Montgomery County, Maryland/NW D.C. area. Individual instruction for all levels on alto, tenor, or baritone. Lessons can include classical and/or jazz and improvisational instruction. Anyone interested can contact him (serious inquiries please) at jim_conti@live.com for more information.

Obviously we are very fond of our Jimmy, so no stalkers or creeps please.

That is all, see you at the next update, with soundclips!

Preview clips

If the record is finished, one of them should rip it onto a laptop, pop over to a Starbucks or somewhere else with public wifi, and throw it up on a public torrent tracker or something. It's really frustrating that they have a whole album of material that nobody can hear because Victory are a bunch of jerks.

That song (title) isn't about me. This weekend we played Ska Is Dead which was pretty sweet besides the fact of everything going wrong before/during/after our set. At the end of the show the drummer from the Toasters and the trombonists for the Voodoo Glow Skulls had a race to see who could chug a gallon of milk the fastest. If I get around to it I'll upload what lovely video I have.

What band are you in again? I always see people talking about how great your band is and I want to get in on the goon ska!

I was really worried I wouldn't get them, since the charge the ticket company made on my card sat there untouched for so long the bank actually gave me the money back in my account, and it didn't get charged again until like last week.
