Kelly's Heroes - Not Strong Enough (1997)

Straightforward 3rd wave ska-punk from New Orleans. More ska than punk.  The album title comes from a rejection letter the band received from MCA Records after the band sent them their demo. MCA responded with "Unfortunately, I did not find the material strong enough to pursue at this time."

Mr. Smarty Pants - Skank You Very Much (1998)

Late 90s 3rd wave ska-punk from Turlock, California. I've heard it said that this was a Christian band but there's nothing overtly religious in the lyrics. Aside from two other tracks that were on compilations this is probably the only thing the band ever recorded.

1 Ego Trip
2 One Eyed Sailor Man

Tchicky Monky

Here's everything I have by this band. They released two tapes that I don't have yet. I've been looking for them for many years but have not had any luck. In my search for those tapes however, I did find a tape called "Démo 6 Titres" which did not have a track listing. There are 7 songs on the tape and I don't recognize any of them. Hopefully some of you folks can help me out here.

Then there's the live recording "Live in Bologne" which I though has 14 tracks but their old MySpace page shows it as having 20 tracks so I'm missing 6 songs. Any of you have them?

Re-Ups / Re-Posts - Stupid Lazy Pig edition

I do try to get to all of the re-post requests but it's hard to do. It's very time-consuming and I don't have a lot of free time. Here's what I was able to do today which is only a handful of the requests that I got in the last few months. I will try to get to the others in the next few weeks. Thank you all for being patient.

To that small percentage of you who have been sending me those emails and messages with such shitty attitudes, I'm still going to re-post your requests but you are at the end of the list. Calling me a "stupid lazy pig" and telling me to burn in hell isn't really the best way to get what you want from me or anybody else. Getting mad at me because I didn't respond to your precious email quickly enough isn't going to motivate me in any way. I don't know what you think this blog is, but I'm just some stupid nobody who likes sharing music with people. I don't owe you anything. Sometimes I go over a month without even reading my email. This blog isn't my whole life. It's just a hobby.
Get over yourself. Drink some beer, smoke some weed, and listen to some ska. I'll get to you when I get to you. You can't make me get to you any quicker but you can make me get to you later, or not at all.
