    I listen to alot of music, and this includes ska. I really love the old stuff, listening to Toot's and the Maytals just now, so beautiful. I like madness and the specials too, and most of the 70's/80's ska...but i downlo...found some modern ska albums...they were so scary!!!

    they were very punky, not really singing about much. They were loud and fast, losing that reggae rythem and gentleness i know and love.

    Was just wondering what you all felt of new and old ska, and what band's you suggest people look out for :)

    ska is a branch of reggae, or that's how it started. It was really the specials who brought it into the spot light, in some ways it was non-jamaican reggae...it started to develop differences, it's faster and though many bands have jamaican singers, not all do. ub40/specials/madness are all ska, and i love them all :) Alot of the early stuff sung about real issues, but some of the stuff i listened to was pretty dire

    actually reggae is a branch of ska. Jamaican people were getting radio waves from florida, so they took the American music and added their own style to it. The story goes that one summer it was too hot to play ska, so they slowed it down and created reggae. If you listen to Bob Marley's older stuff, you hear alot more ska than reggae (like the song Judge Not).
