Yeah, considering there's a 26 year span between the skatalites 1st album & The Bosstones 1st, although the Skatalites are still playing and MMB aren't.

2nd wave: Madness, The Specials, English Beat, Selecter, Bad Manners

It's all about the 2nd wave for me. I'm not really into early Ska and some 3rd wave bands are truly terrible. Reel Big Fish and Big D and the Kid's Table come to mind.

I've always considered MMB first wave, no idea why. Just doesn't seem like third to me.
And yeah, I've never actually stumbled onto any 2nd wave ska-bands.

Really? Nothing beats Skatalites for me. Classic stuff. I have MoonSka Years, The Best Of, among other albums.
And I don't really have anything against Big D, definitely much better than Reel Big Fish.

There is something about the Bosstones which sets them apart from most 3rd wave, but I see no similarities between their music and 1st wave. They were in diapers when the Skatalites were playing some of their best music.

Jackhammer I'll confess I'm not a huge fan of 2nd wave. Much of it seems to have too much of a new wave element for me to like, but I certainly ike and respect it a lot more than 3rd wave.

Malta actually has a really big (well, big for Malta) ska scene...maybe check out the Riffs and Peklectrick. Peklectrick is more reggae but you still might like it.
