I’m pretty sure Dan Potthast is a big name in ska, but I don’t really know anything about ska, other than I wondered if those kids who dressed up like rude boys (and girls) in high school did that all the time. I want to call this kind of folky, but again, I don’t really know much about ska. It mostly just feels lighter than say, The Toasters. Maybe I’d call it post-ska (instead of post-hardcore). Though, I can say that it’s good spring/summertime barbecue music.
