and I guess for 'other' I'd reccomend Assorted Jelly Beans, Operation Ivy if you haven't picked 'em up already, Five Iron Frenzy, Fishbone, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Skankin Pickle, The Toasters
and even though Steel Pulse is reggae, you should check that out too.

edit: I know you've probably heard of Less Than Jake, but just in case, check out the albums Pezcore or Losing Streak. good shit.

Two-Tone Ska

Description:
Code:
The Two Tone Ska era was named as so because of the
similarly titled record company, 2 Tone Records, formed by Jerry Dammers,
keyboardist of The Specials. Two Tone Ska started in the UK, and was a
major relief of racial tension between black and white people. Traditional Ska's
unique rhythms came together with Punk-Rock's lyrics and guitar chords to
form Two Tone Ska. Two Tone is generally characterized by faster tempos,
and the integration of horns. As Two Tone promoted racial unity, the
checkerboard pattern was adopted as a symbol of Two Tone Ska. It was
common for Two Tone artists to cover Traditional Ska songs, released in the
50s and 60s. In this way, artists like Prince Buster were receiving more money
in royalties than they had ever received from releasing records. (by SkaBandit)
