Go to the Punk Recomendation thread, and look under 1st, and 2nd wave bands.

EDIT:
Stuff like The Specials, The Toasters, The Selecter, and The Beat all have punk undertones in them, so they're not exactly "straight up" ska... just for the record.
Stuff like The Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, and Jimmy Cliff are more true to the orignial ska sound. (That the 'skins in Britian loved, and mutated into 2-Tone)
Circle that A, motherfucker!

The Toasters, they have a little punk feel to them, but they're still good.
