Hey guys! First post! Whoo!
I've been a ska fan as long as I can remember, and recently got given a disk full of ska tracks by a friend of mine. Sadly neither of us know who played some of them! So I was hoping you could give me a hand.
A cover of the James Bond Theme. I think it's a cover of the Specials version, as it sounds a lot cleaner and breaks down into the Goldfinger theme towards the end (at 2:21) after a very good 2 part improvised section (from 1:20). Sadly it cuts out after 2:52.
A cover of the Pink Panther theme. It's by an American band, and has the main theme played on the bass. No brass at all. It's more skacore/ ska punk than pure ska, and it's only about a minute long. It's possible that it's NoFX, but I'm not sure.
A cover of the Ghost busters theme, most likely again by an American band, with the main theme played on brass. Only 2:41 long. Also more ska punk than pure ska.
A cover of the Tetris theme, probably by the same band who did the James Bond theme, it has the same 2 part brass, and the same skankable guitar sound, and again breaks down into a really cool improvised horn section at about 1:28. It again cuts out, this time at 2:56.
If you guys can help that would be absolutely ace.
Thanks very much,
