local band that recently broke up. They're the closet thing to ska and hardcore (or hardcore punk) I've heard. My band has played many shows with them in the past, being the only other "ska" band in windsor.

Anyways RIP to them.

Any other "ska/hardcore" bands out there?
Folly, kinda sorta. Either way, they ruled.
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.

Third Wave Sub Genre - Ska Punk/Ska-Core:
Ska punk combines punk and ska, ska-core combines ska with hardcore. Ska punk is characterised by faster tempos, guitar distortion, onbeat punk-style interludes (usually the chorus), and nasal, gruff, or shouted vocals. The more ska-influenced style of ska punk features a more developed instrumentation and a cleaner vocal and musical sound. The common instrumentation includes guitar, bass guitar, drums, saxophones, trombones, trumpets and/or other brass instruments, and sometimes an organ.

^^That's from the Ska noob thread in the Punk / Ska forum.
Yeah, I've heard most of those bands, I just never saw as much as a hardcore influence in some of them.
