Ska '98 - Ska '98 (1998)

If you go on eBay right now and search "ska" at least 14 million copies of this album will appear in your search. On CD and vinyl and cassette and 8-track tape. Those who don't know better would think this was the most popular album in the 1990s ska scene. 

Most of the sellers list this as a compilation album, but it's not. 

This is a Christian ska album. It is not a compilation - the "band" is called Ska '98. They weren't an actual band. It was a collaboration of Christian musicians who wanted to take advantage of the popularity of ska at the time to preach the Gospel. 

And preach they did. If you are Christian you will appreciate the lyrics. If you are not Christian you can still appreciate that they were talented ska musicians but the lyrics will wear thin real fast.

Mighty Snortin' Powder Rangers - Snortid (1998)


 Great female-fronted ska-punk with an unfortunate name. They had a couple of songs that were on compilations but those songs are on this demo tape. I don't know if they ever had an official release but I'm hoping there is one out there. 

1 Too Much 'assle!

2 Tha Difference

3 Wot Comes Round

4 Pompey is Pants & We All Want to Move to L.A. Where the Beer is Cheaper

Savannah - Keep on Lovin' Me 7" (1980)


 Even though the poppy A-side is a catchy tune, I'm posting this one for the new wave/reggae B-side. This record was released a few times in Spain and by Sound of Scandinavia in Sweden. I don't actually know where the band was from. 

 

A - Keep On Lovin' Me

B - We Are Allright
