There is a lot of local-ish New England ska on here... obviously, The Flamingos is not the 50s Flamingos you might be thinking of.... and The Freshman and Brain Damage are covers... This was a birthday present for a good friend who's finally started going to shows, so I tried to keep most of it as a local sampler. There's a second CD to this, but I'm lazy. It's got Tip the Van (some of my good friends who also happen to be wickedly tight... you must see/hear them if you ever get the chance!) on it, and a couple other local guys and gals. In any case, this is a pretty skankin' mix... there's only a few songs that aren't easy to dance to on here. Enjoy!

Wow, a friend and I were just discussing the fate of Moon Records the other day. Which of these bands still tour? Ska revival was THE thing when I was in high school. I must've seen the Scofflaws 2 dozen times. Flashback

I'm east-of-the-river CT. But, uh, lessee. Personally, I've seen The Know How, The Pietasters, Mustard Plug, The Flamingos, Fortunado, Tip the Van, Big D and the Kids Table, Catch 22, the Flaming Tsunamis, The Debonaires, the Delegates, Stealing from Peter, Sick Boy, I Voted for Kodos, Three Years Accident Free, High School Football Heroes, Too Short Notice, Streelight Manifesto, Skaliosis, and.. probably a few others I can't think of at the moment. All of those guys are currently on tour or have been on tour within the past two years. The Toasters were just recently around here, in February or something, but I couldn't make it. And as for most of the other guys on here... as far as I know, they're pretty evenly split between "long gone" and "still hangin' in there".

Ska might be dead... but its zombie corpse is still kicking.
