Who’s up for some California ska punk reggay rock… Sublime style?

I had to put this post under the hard/punk/ska category, although Sublime has several reggay-type songs that are quite accessible to a wide audience (although the lyrics might not be… yeah might not be my parents’ cup of tea). Sadly, charismatic singer Brad Nowell died at 28 of a heroin overdose in 1996, just before Sublime now-famous eponym album was released. What a great album. Rest in peace Brad!

Here’s a live performance of Johnny Butt and Don’t push. Also, for your enjoyment, two music videos: “What I got” and “Same in the end”. Now, who want to go surfing? Or skateboarding? Or even longboarding? (remember the longboard? No? Check the videos!!)


Planet Smashers: ska, anyone?

Kinda felt like listening to this. The Montréal band Planet Smashers has not released an album in a few years, but these guys are still touring a lot. Doing mostly local shows I think. I’ve seen them a few times, always enjoyable.

Take it from the top!
