Default Help me with Ska PLEASE

Okay I just recently discovered Ska...I used to like the mighty mighty bosstones when I was younger but i never really knew what they were. Just today I started thinking about them and downloaded a bunch of songs, etc. I've only discovered Barenaked Ladies, Reel Big Fish, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes and Mighty Mighty Bosstones...oh yeah, and Sublime...I don't know if any of these are truely ska or whatever, but I love them and I'd really like to discover more Ska bands. So help me..and please, only recommend good bands. I don't feel like going on a hunt to see which ones are good and which ones are bad. Thanks nerds. I love you all

You would probobly like catch 22, mustard plug, and big d and the kids table.

But my personal sugestions are the stubborn all stars, new york ska jazz ensamble, hepcat, slackers, skatalites, ska-dows, eastern standard time, Alton ellis, jacki opel, etc, etc, etc,

Ive downloaded some Catch 22, Mad Caddies, Toasters and Skatalites. I tried finding Slackers and Hepcat but I couldn't find any...I'll have to go spend the money I don't have...Well thank you then.

Umm the band labels don't really matter as long as you like the Music. But to answer your question , some really really good Ska bands are

South Central Skankers, Upground, A Toda Madre, Matamoscas, Chencha Berrinche
