I agree with Ras Alto - that the *early* Jamaican ska is where its at, though I'm not an active listener.

This is just my personal opinion, but I see this nowaday ska/punk as slackness. American white boys, (I and I am 'white' so be not offended,) taking the reggae formula...speeding it up...and removing the groove and conscious message, when the groove and conscious message is why I and I love roots reggae music to begin with!

Pretty much the only straight up ska/punk band (by today's standards that is) I actually like is Operation Ivy.  I don't care much for the 3rd wave ska revival, but the 2nd wave ska revival (which I consider ska/punk) with bands like the Specials, the Selecter, the Beat, etc... some of the best music out there.  Unlike most of today's ska/punk bands they had a social/political twist to their lyrics, and they made much better music.  The problem with today's American ska bands is they just don't seem to look back on the original wave of Jamaican ska artists as much as they should...

I like all walks of music because it is a natural thing. I like punk bands like the clash, bad brains, NOFX, propagandhi, pennywise, bad religion. that is punk. Bands like Blink 182, good charlette, and my chemical romance may be confused with punk but it is really called pop. Like Brittney Spears, backstreet boys, they just in it for the money. REAL punk is about freedom, respect, and equality.

i personally reallylike and enjoy punk music and some ska

i may be making a very daring comment by saying punk and reggae pass messages which are in some ways similar as in the equality and the downfall of western society

not that i could imagine crass praising jah lol

dont take that the wrong way

I too am learning to dig the early Ska sound.  I hadn't heard much of it before starting the course I'm doing, but now i have I'm toatlly re-building my CD collection.

Have you guys ever heard of The Redskins?  They were a Marxist Ska/Punk band from way back when (like the 80s) whop were trying to do a lefty alternative to Oi! music for young dissafected youth back when thatcher was still in charge over here.  They did some good tunes and had a great Brass section going on a lot of their tracks.

Not really into ska, but some of my favorite punk bands are: Bad Brains, Dead Kennedy's, Bad Religion, and the Misfits.
