‘Round the World

SkankinSka may suck… Ska revival may not be cool, says this stupid schmuck* (smuck**), but this comp, 1988’s Skankin’ ‘Round the World – The International Ska Compilation – Vol. 1, unveils itself under a dusty cloud of pleasure-toned, reggae-influenced, Caribbean-minded melodic good-time, happy-go-skankin’ Monday evening mood-music, that’s perfect parts nostalgia, groove, and global badassery. It’s a pleasurable head-bobbing, foot-tapping comp. Check it out.

* Propagandhi’s 1993 track, Ska Sucks off their debut album, How to Clean Everything.

** Ishtar, you know, the 1987 comedic masterpiece?! One of my personal favorites.
