King Kong 4 Climbs The Empire Skate Building!

Check out this cool new record from King Kong 4. There are so many things I like about this. One is that they are called King Kong 4. I also like that their sound is “wedged uncomfortably between early Elvis Costello and the Specials first album” – as one of the Kongsters described. He’s right, by Jove. The dudes have a FB page and they’re on Bandcamp. The guitar playing is especially notable and the combo rocks. Really solid release, hot off the presses. Two paws up!

Here be they:

Dub City Rockers and Chris Murray – “Do The Ska” mp3

Fittingly, I start my set of paw-selected SKA music with an ode to SKA! UK’s marvelous Dub City Rockers lay it down, as Chris Murray – longtime champion of ska music and pioneer of acoustic solo ska – sings the praises of ska. What is for a ska doggie not to love?

UPDATE: This track is no longer available here! I’m leaving this post up so you’s can goog it! Woof!

Radio Noise – “Save All Your Sadness For Me” mp3

Radio Noise’s kick ass punky ska number, “Save All Your Sadness For Me” has more valuable relationship advice stuffed into a few hot minutes than you might spend thousands of dollars and hours on in a fancy therapy office. Quality post-modern neurosis with a catchy chorus and some really funny lines.

Two paws up.
