I joined because the owner of this group told me to in some punk group, and i mostly do what i'm told.
i don't know why, but it didn't even occur to me to look for a ska group. i was doubtful that i would find a punk group- ok, like a real punk group. i thought i was the only ska momma nerdy enough to get on places like cafemom.
anyhow, i'm ami and i absolutly LOVE ska in all it's shapes and sizes.
i got started in the ska scene with christian ska bands, and to this day Five Iron Frenzy is one of my all time favourite bands. if you've never heard them, well, they're broken up now, but you'll love their music, whatever your beliefs. for the record, not that it matters, but i'm not religous at all nowadays.
Anyhow, i also really like bands like the specials and old oi! as well. i have this cd that a friend made for me, it has 50 years of ska on it, it's so wonderful! but most of the bands on it are from like 40 and 50 years ago, and i don't know most of them. but i'm jsut so into that sound, the old time ska sound.
but i also really like the new shit. the bosstones are definatly where it's at. old no doubt and sublime are in my cd player on a weekly basis, and i like reel big fish so so much.
i like anything with that ska, dancy feel to it. i love going to shows and skankin it out. a kickin skank pit is like the most beautiful orginazation on earth.
i'd really like to go on, but my computer is acting weird, and i'm afraid if i odn't post soon, it won't happen. plus, the ramen is done.
