I'm fairly loose on what I define as Ska, rock or punk with trumpets will do.
Anyone into japanese ska? Some of it is pretty awesome, but the only bands I've been able to get a listen to are:
I'm not familiar with the other two, but isn't Yum! Yum! ORANGE skunk, whereas the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra is regular ska? You can't really compare them on the same level.
Anyway, my experience with Japanese ska is limited to Yum! Yum! ORANGE and the TSPO (other than the occasional anime song with ska influence). I like them both, though.
>but isn't Yum! Yum! ORANGE skunk
I have no idea!
On my quest for more J-Ska, I came accross this.
also: tokyo ska paradise orchestra
coquettish, i saw em in tokyo and they were fucking awesome.
B-DASH isn't really ska, since they don't have trumpets, but they still have that sound.
What about Orange Range?
determinations, the ska flames
Oh!I love scatology too!
what about american or other western ska bands. I mean, I love ska in all forms, and the few J-ska I've listened to i've liked, but I'm curious to know what other ska you guys listen to. For me, it has to be Suburban Legends (you need to actually SEE them play to really do them justice though), Reel Big Fish, Big D and the Kids Table (even though they're not totally ska), the Untouchables, Less than Jake before they sold out and went all emo, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and the Aquabats when they were still ska (even though I also love their new stuff. they just completely kick ass).
