I guess that the occasional metallic guitars classify Harijan as “ska-core.” There is no reason for any of their songs to be over four minutes long, but all three are. Why? Then John Player Specials came on, and I ain’t the smartest man, but I think they’re subbing in ukulele for guitar. Interesting. Their songs are smooth going and, if I hadn’t stopped giving a shit about ska sometime towards the middle of Clinton’s first term, I might even venture to listen to JPS again.
