added some 'pop' ska punk bands in order for people who might be barely familiar with the genre can understand it more with more popular bands.

Liked what I read. I think you should've talked about the Clash and Less Than Jake. For who wants to listen to something good portuguese ska bands, check out Ena Pa 2000, Tara Perdida, Peste e Sida and Despe e Siga.

the slackers aren't 'skacore' or 'skapunk'. they play a mix of ska, reggae, rocksteady and dub. otherwise, good history.

im not moaning just adding bits of my ska history....

phase 1 - tommy mccook / ken boothe (freedom st etc) / maytals

duke reid had some proper tunes...so did don drummond (man in the street / alipang!!!!!!!!!!) & rico etc

im definitely still all about phase 1 and 2 (with the exception of the odd phase 3 tune... less than jake / mad caddies / the odd reel big fish tune etc....

ska was definitely the biggest in the early 60s for me

Jumped over here at my very first post because I'm a huge Ska-head... Got to say, I'm kind of saddened by the lack of mention of Streetlight Manifesto. They're really re-inventing third wave sound with their extensive horn use.

Agreed. I like some 3rd wave but for me ska was best in the 60s.
Coxsone, Trojan, etc...

All I've been exposed to has been 3rd wave ska or slightly ska influenced pop/punk. I was obsessed about 2 years ago but got bored since it all started to sound the same (Too much Less Than Jake is like listening to the same song 40 times)

Looking at these older first and second wave ska groups gives me more incentive to listen to ska again, and they've all been so powerful and addictive. It's my own personal ska revival...with older ska music...ironic :-p
