The Official Harmonix Podcast Episode 35 – Ska!

If there is one podcast that most illustrates me abusing my powers as the podcast guy, it is this one. We talk about one of my favorite genres of music, the much misunderstood and oft-maligned style called Ska. Joined by genuine Ska veteran, Emeen Zarookian, and John Drake who did horn arrangements for his 7th grade swing band, we run down the history of the genre, its connections to Reggae, and its ongoing legacy in the world of music today.

We also talk at length about the newly announced DLC this week from my favorite band, The Clash! Hope you enjoy it, and if you want to discuss, join me in the History of Rock forum to talk about your favorite Ska bands.

Hope you enjoy it, and if you want share your favorite Ska records or bands, join the discussion HERE!

I would love some more Bosstones and to see The Specials debut on Rock Band. I'm a huge ska fan and would love more of this body-movin music.
