Sublime? Rancid? Streetlight Manifesto? where are they on the list man?

Sublime is nothing but honky-reggae. Only had a few real ska songs, most were more in the rocksteady and reggae direction.

Mustard Plug, Reel Big Fish, Westbound Train, Catch 22, and Mighty Mighty Bosstones

that should give you a somewhat good idea on the different forms of third wave ska there are, there are alot more but i would say listen to those figure out what you like and then come back.

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

Mmm, i recently got into Planet Smashers. They are my latest obsession, haha. Does anyone know any bands similar to them?

The ska i already listen to is The Specials, Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish, The Toasters, The Slackers, if that is any help.

#135

#142
is sublime considered ska? I mean theyre a mix of reggae styles as well as punk. Im just wonderin why they arent here

edit- i just saw a post sayin they were "ska-core", but i would consider them very ska. And im also a big fan of Bosstones, RBF, Pepper, The Toasters, and The Untoucheables

I mean i guess for more of a ska purist sublime may not be perfect, but i still love them
#145
Sublime used to have all my hometowns anthems, being from out here. Every party you couldn't go out without Sublime coming on and everyone singing the choruses off key and butchering the verses by mixing up the lyrics.

Good times though good times.

most sublime songs are just verses without a chorus...

Anyone else here into MU330 and Potshot?

Also, for any interested, there's a great video on Youtube of Potshot covering The Suicide Machines' Islands in the Sky. It even has Dan from the Suicide Machines lol.
#149
If I'm totally honest with you, I've only heard a couple of songs by MU330. I enjoyed the ones I have heard but not enough to make me want to listen to more of their stuff. I know I shouldn't judge a band on just a couple of songs though!


Is anyone into the Aggrolites? I'm not a huge fan of steady reggae/ska, but I've got the opportunity to see them for free this month and was wondering whether it was worth checking them out?
#150
aggrolites you say?

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=23374386

if not for that song alone i would go see them haha!

I think i had a chance to see them earlier this year but then i forgot about it before it was too late...

haha, that song/video was brilliant...that may just have been the deciding factor!

Thanks

We will probably end up going to see them as their are a load of other ska, soul and reggae bands playing but they're looking quite dull in comparison.

Go see them. I'm not really much of a fan, but I saw them open for Flogging Molly and I actually enjoyed their show.

For free you might as well give them a chance.

Yeah, I did go see them, I think it was last month now!
They were really good; both musically and in how they were on stage. I'd definitely go and see them again.
I met their organ player & drummer aswell, and they were really nice guys.

I was a bit gutted because Pauline Black and Neville Staple were doing a set after them but I had to get back to the campsite!

#155
What about Sublime!!!

Gotta say I think its a bit odd not including sublime in the main list. I mean reggae came from ska and I reckon its just splitting hairs not to include them. by the same logic you could ague that Madness play rock-steady and the Specials play dub.

anyway gotta recomend Sublime, Fishbone and The Cat Empire. the cats have never claimed any association with punk that i know of, but they seem to have refreshingly raw vocals and a fairly DIY approach.

Chris Murray, hes their producer on a few albums and does alot with a few bands, acoustic ska genius. His setlists are composed near entirely of requests.

Will I get abuse for asking about all the modern ska going on both sides of the atlantic? does this count as 4th wave? Flaming Tsunamis, King Blues being the biggest two probably, but anything on Rebel Alliance and the JB Conspiracy are amazing.
