My next series of interviews is still a ways off, so I thought I’d try to keep everyone interested by running an all-music series. Look forward to episodes featuring Skinhead Reggae, Dub Revivalism, and more.
In this episode, I play some of the best Neo-Trad Ska to come out of the past couple of years. You’ll hear bands from the States, Europe, and Asia; all of them calling back to Jamaica, but adding something modern.
I’ve added links where I can, and I encourage you to buy something from any of the bands that you like.
Pepper Pots – King of the Street Link
Westbound Train – Fatty Fatty, Boom Boom Link
The Debonaires – Interrupted Link
The Determinations feat. Ego Wrapping – A Love Song Video Link
Heavy Step – You Got It (Newish – I couldn’t find any Deal’s Gone Bad)
The Moon Invaders – Consciousness Link
The Pepper Pots – Runaway Video Link
The Upsessions – Cool Ska Time Link
The Slackers – Robots
If you are in a band or know of one, that plays Jamaican Revivalism in any form, and would like it to be featured on an episode of Cut the Chit Chat, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
