well theres a lot of different styles of ska, so no need to feel stupid about it. i know a lot of people who like less than jake but don't like, say, the skatalites, and vice-versa.

Well, now I know that I've always liked it haha.
I've always thought that was indie or something.

i'm not really a big fan of less than jake, i haven't heard to much, but most of what i have didn't really have horns or anything at all. the song korn cakes posted was definitely legit though, no way around it

Silly Pinkeh. They stopped using horns for a while, but came back with them in GNV FLA.

So this is going to sound really narrow-minded, but is the use of horns kind of what defines it as ska?

Edit: Damn, that's a good song.

since theyve started producing theyre own music things have just gotten better and better.the song you like is off their newest album GNVFLA released on the bands own label ''sleep it off records'' search all their stuff.in with the out crowd is the only stink but even that has some good songs.

Korn Cakes
03-01-2009, 07:52 PM
So, somebody answer my seemingly narrow-minded question.

Are the horns kind of what defines ska?

pinkeh
03-01-2009, 08:01 PM
most ska bands have a brass section, but not all bands with a brass section are ska bands. basically walking basslines and playing on the offbeats are what defines ska, where horns usually take the lead.

Korn Cakes
03-01-2009, 08:03 PM
I have been enlightened.
Thanks Pinkeh and popwar.

Emerica

Alot of ska is kinda hard to play on set, including streetlight manifesto. Their drummer was like, center snare for the fucking Cavaliers.

Yay ska. :]

Streetlight Manifesto is the shit. Almost got to see them in January but the damn show sold out. :\

drizzle

another chance to be a douchebag-

i dont see Streetlight as ska much. i see them as their own super amazing genre. they sound like NOTHING else in the ska universe....

SkaSkate
03-11-2009, 01:29 PM
^ Yea and I don't like either them or Less Than Jake.



...wanna trade combat boots?

nigga i wasnt hating on SM. i said DEY WAS AMAZING.

im just sayin they dont really fit much into the ska genre.... they just got upstroke guitar and a horn section.... and reinvent ska into their own mutated monster of awesomeness

SkaSkate
03-11-2009, 01:45 PM
Yea and I said otherwise.

How can you not like LTJ? Theyre freaking sick. GNV FLA is such a great album.

And yes, SM is a godly band.

I suddenly gained some respect for you again. Why do so few people know of this band? I can't think of a better ska band.

pinkeh

btmi gets on my nerves a lot of the time. their songs usually have great lyrical content, but i can't understand a word of it when i listen to it because their vocalist has that raspy "FUCK-I'VE-NEEDED-TO-TAKE-A-SHIT-FOR-5-HOURS-ALREADY" style. regardless though, i can't remember the last time i heard of btmi playing around here and i didn't go. blah
