The Aggrolites – “Lunar Eclipse” mp3

I can only go so many ska doggie days without some Aggy’s. Formed originally as a one-off backing band for the legendary Derrick Morgan, The Aggrolites have since become internationally known as one of the tightest ska/reggae bands on the live music scene. Always a great show, go see ’em when u get the chance. Here’s an early instrumental with their patented “Dirty Reggae” sound. Ah, that sweet Hammond Organ. Great guitar work on this too, and their riddim section can’t be beat. I haz happy.

The Uptones – “Bad Men Of Bodie” mp3

A fine gold-country ska nugget from The Uptones. Jeanne Geiger’s trombone solo always brings down the house when they perform this song live. From the Skankin’ Foolz Unite! CD, on Fun Fun Fun Recordings. They even put my ska doggie mug on the front cover!
