Default Third Wave Ska

From the stuff I've heard third wave ska sounds pretty awesome. I really have only listened to stuff like Mighty Mighty Bosstones, King Prawn, and The Fad.

I'm actually not sure if those would be considered third wave or just ska-punk, Still I'm curious as to what your favorite Third Wave Ska artists are.

The Toasters are just about classed as 3rd wave even though they have been around since about '81.


Japonicas
Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra
New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble
The Aggrolites
The Aggronauts
General Rudie
The Flaming Tsunamis

are some of many that I like.

These guys are known? About a year ago I saw like a billion advertisements around the city for one of their concerts. Now I'm sad that I missed it.

The 80's NY Ska scene really deserves it's own sub-genre to distance itself from the marginalizing third-wave label, then again so do all of the other fantastic bands you listed.

I'm fond of the Aquabats because of their quirky, humorous songs, like "CD Repo Man" and the more recent "Pool Party." "Pool Party" has diverged from Third Wave ska...but I prefer it. I like the group's unabashed silliness.
