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?

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.

Free mp3: Gangsters, “The Family”

They’re back, The Gangsters, who originally formed in ’91, broke up a few years later, only to be convinced by the likes of Beatville Records to reunite in ’97. Straight out of Dublin, the Gangsters were Influenced by the era of 2-tone ska by bands like: The Specials, Bad Manners, Madness, and The English Beat, they were the only ska band in Dublin for years. “Family” is a classic 2-tone ska track.
