*dances like a rudeboy
ska is from jamaica from the 1950's.
CT had a great ska scene for a long time. Used to go to a lot of shows. I still see guys from Spring Heeled Jack, Sgt. Scagnetti around town. Going to high school near Boston, used to see Mighty Mighty Bosstones a lot, Bim Skala Bim, etc.
I hope it comes back. Fun times! :D
- Vin from Bim Ska La Bim is in the Pilfers. They play like once a year, it's the only way to get kids to a ska show.tasty
- I was just thinking about the Tune Inn today as I am heading to New Heaven soon.DeviceUnseen
- The Anthrax??? Dude did we pass each other in a former life?TheBlueOne
- I used to dig the Tune In. Played there a number of times myself!harlequino
I hope it is coming back because if it does mod vs. rocker brawling won't be far behind.
Bums me out that jamican ska gets lumped in with this shit.
- I never thought it got lumped in. Respected as its own thing. I believe the term for this genre is Third Wave.harlequino
- half the kids don't even know the old shit.mrdobolina
- Yeah, but that goes for anything. Ask an emu douche if he likes the Smiths, and he'll say "my neighbors?"harlequino
- a lot of music is labelled incorrectly.Jaline
- especially after the 80s, I would say.Jaline
- it is sadly lumped in. When you say "ska" and most people think LTJ, Hepcat, etc... not Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster....OnesandZeros
- exactly my point.mrdobolina
Every ten years the ska revival arrives...just on time...this would be the third ska revival I have lived through...that means a Doors/Jim Morrison revival should be about 8 months away...
less than jake?
I often long for revivals of stuff I love, but I then I quickly remember how that immediately dessimates the things I love. And destroys any "counter culture" charm still left. The brief swing music/dance thing around '97 did that. Thank god it was quick.
Skatellites still sound good. No revival needed.
Mmm... Ska.. I do love trad. Jamaican stuff - Alton Ellis, Skatalites and the like. Then there is the rocksteady which I also love. I can even listen to some of the 2-Tone stuff. But "3rd wave" ska has got to be one of the worst things that I have ever heard. Hands down.
It's the Jamaican stuff that has real longevity.
I know they have a reggae vibe too but Hepcat used to really float my boat. Especially when they played among a pre Fat Wreckesque lineup with No Use For A Name, Bouncing Souls, Avail etc. When Hepcat came on it was like the eye of the storm.
amazing that it started in church. Righteous music.
Am I right?
