Agreed. Bass is great, too.
Five Iron Frenzy was one of my favorite ska bands, back when it was big. Their later albums got pretty bad IMO. Less ska sounding.
I think the Pilfers is my all time favorite ska band though. Looking for videos, I never realized they only had a single trombone for a horn section.
Not the best performance, but I liked it because I think the horn is not playing what's on the album version, so it's kind of unique.
And Suicide Machines probably my next favorite band from that time.
You consider ska "Bubblegum". Weird. I would have never thought of that. Third Wave Ska is really just a blend of ska and punk. there's some stuff out there that is most certainly not marketed at the "bubblegu" crowd.

Hey all, I've been lurking on the forum for months and after reading this I thought I needed to reply. See, I've been thinking about posting this very same topic for a while and after seeing someone else bring this up, I thought I needed to finally chime in.
Lots of good ideas out there!
I'd love to see a ska pack that features a song from each period of ska's popularity. There are three of them, so that would round out a pack. Idunno how hard it is to get the rights from such old songs, but it would be neat to get some old, and I mean OLD, Jimmy Cliff or Prince Buster for the first wave. Then maybe some Specials, Madness, the Selecter or the Beat from the 2 tone period/second wave. For the third wave? Fishbone, Mighty Mighty Bosstones or even the band that really popularized the sound in the 90s: No Doubt.
And speaking of genres, I wouldn't mind a reggae and rocksteady pack.
Really you folks need to put your DLC requests into the DLC request sticky thread.
I'd like some old Bosstones before they got popular. Used to go to their shows in small clubs. Really fun band, but I don't think i could deal with the pit anymore.
