I was just checking out the Phoenix New Times (local alt weekly) and noticed a brief promo spot for the "Ska Is Dead IV" tour. The writer compared ska to cockroaches. Now, usually I dont like cockroaches, but in this case, I applaud them! Its completely true that ska will not die for a long time. We've gone through almost fifty years of ever changing music, there will always be some die-hard band out there playing ska, promoting ska, and listening to ska.
In short, I'm proud to be considered a ska kid and rudeboy, and I want the world to know it!
