Hi, this is Eric and Moose from The UpTones. We got depressed when we could not find a ska section in our local record store in Berkeley.
We then went to Amazon and iTunes and everywhere else online, and couldn’t find ska as a genre. It’s either under “alternative” which is bollocks, or listed as a sub genre to reggae or punk. Nuf’ respect to reggae and punk, but ska came from neither, and it is a top level genre to anyone who knows what dancing feet are for.
So what’s going on here? All the bands on our links list play ska, of one kind or another. We want to have the most complete links page of ska bands, mp3s, sites and podcasts in the universe. Please post a comment and send us your ska url, so we can post it in our list of ska peeps who feel ska isn’t getting its rightful place in the world.
