Mondo showed me a ska cover of Marilyn Manson’s The New Shit and I was so disappointed in myself for liking it. Now I was sent over this cover of Black Flag’s My War by The Skints. More English and less tie-with-a-t-shirt, the Skints’ ska is much more my jam lately and I find myself REALLY liking this song. I shouldn’t, but I do.
You can snag their album FM on 3/10/15 or just go see the Skints jam it live (maybe, I don’t dictate their set list) on their tour w/ Easy Star All-Stars:
April 30 – Huntington, NY – Paramount – also with English Beat
May 2 – Brooklyn Bowl with Fishbone
May 3 – Boston, MA – The Royale – also with Fishbone
May 4 – Philadelphia, PA – World Café Live
May 6 – Charlottesville, VA – Jefferson Theatre
May 7 – Leesburg, VA – Tally Ho Theater
May 8 – Baltimore, MD – 8 x 10
May 9 – Washington DC – Gypsy Sally’s
And for the fuck of it, let’s show you the Manson cover from Bob Kooparos, which I am sure is some kind of Russian ska villain.
