    Anyone help me out with some good ska tracks? I’ve been really getting into the genre recently, but this is only from the odd song that I have heard. Any suggestions would be great. Cheers ;)

    ^^^^^ this. love to go on concerts and stuff, but never know any names.

    still, i know 2 :D - first theres a combo from new york, making anything between ska and hardcore stuff, called the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble, and theyre the fucking sickest live band ever.

    and you got ska-p as the most obvious ska band. really good songs, spanish tho.

    Look into Rocksteady/Lovers Rock too, if you like Ska...

    Probably my favourite style of Reggae, stuff is fucking awesome & slightly up-tempo from your average Roots tune.

    some good albums are freedom fighters (ep), this is liberator (lp), carefully blended (ep) and worlwide delivery (lp). will keep you skanking for some time!
    also to check out are the tokyo ska paradise orchestra and the new york ska-jazz ensemble, both made quality stuff.
