Good drills that man! Ska ruled before it became mainstream and was re-named "Reggae".

It's such a shame that Ska ( progressing to 2 Tone) was hijacked by the Nazis at an early stage in the UK. It then became Rock Steady and morphed into mainstream Reggae, which was only saved by The Lord Bob Marley and others, such as Burning Spear.
This thread might herald a revival of real Ska, who knows?
