      Just started listening recently..

      The Amphetaminies, Call me Malcolm, Capdown, The English beat, Less Than Jake, Madness, The Planet Smashers, The Specials, Streetlight, and so forth, has found its way into my ipod.

      Good ska is timeless.

      I listen to a bit of Fishbone, Madness and even some old school Jimmy Cliff or Toota and the Maytals I'd consider somewhat ska.

      Ska IS timeless. There are a ton of bands still playing and I am always down for a good ska show.

      You guys should check out this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480025/
      I believe it is on Netflix and if you like that scene, it's a great flick to watch with an awesome soundtrack.

      Got into it a couple years back - hearing it for the first time live in some random bar in Chicago.

      Was into Real Big Fish - mainly because it was re-mixed songs that I already knew the words to and was easier to sing after a few beers LOL

      ah the good ol days
      never got to see buck-o-nine live and they had amazing songs to cruise/jam to. less than jake when they were still playing ska. rx bandits were at the top of my music list for a long time. still remember the cheap shows and skank pits. super fun times.
