We Are The Union- Self Care

Coming out back in 2018 was the beginning of the reinvention of We Are The Union as we know them today. This was their first album with Jer and the influence is very clear in the ska of this album. WATU is still the basement emo ska band we love bit with more ska which is an upgrade. This whole album tackles a subject that needs more conversation in the scene. Self Care and mental health. I’ve been listening to this on heavy rotation while I’m currently dealing with a failure of effectiveness in my meds. And it’s such a … Continue reading We Are The Union- Self Care

Dissidente- War On 2 Fronts

My first favorite album of the year dropped this past Friday. From Pittsburgh PA it’s Dissidente’s war on 2 fronts. What’s it sound like? Western PA basement hardcore meets east coast ska core. It’s ska core as fuck. And listening to this baked is a fucking experience! There’s also some doom ska going on. The genre I didn’t know I needed. This is their debut LP from the label defending ska, Bad Time Records. This is also the first Bad Time release of 2022. Black Bloc is my stand out track. It’s solid fuckin ska core to dance around the … Continue reading Dissidente- War On 2 Fronts

The Skallector

I’ve shared this playlist before. Originally named Misfits Of Ska after the Asian Man Records comp. As I get questions and comments about it being the entirety of ska. Well, that was the idea. Other than wanting a portable library of the genre to listen to, it’s about algorithms and search results. To have all and any ska appear in the similar artists. We need all that builds upon what started in Jamaica in the 1950’s to get to know one another. If it wasn’t for the politics of ska, punk would’ve burned out with the Sex Pistols. Ska is … Continue reading The Skallector

RIP Davey Bales

I just found out Davey Bales (an originator of Dark Punk) passed away. This is a total kick in the guts. I came across The Wraith in an article about Dark Punk which is a cross between goth and anarcho punk. This led me down an extreme rabbit hole. I listened to The Wraith’s album album and reviewed it here. Davey was stoked and so gracious that people loved his music. May he dance in darkness with the other lost greats. – C Fish https://punxinsolidarity.wordpress.com/2020/04/18/the-wraith-gloom-ballet/ Continue reading RIP Davey Bales


So the saga of MGK has been fuckin weird. He’s gone from the flagship of this new and interesting evolution of pop punk to living the full pop punk stereotype, right down to the pedophilia and abusive relationships. I honestly defended the Corey Taylor thing because kill your gods and be free. But now MGK has become shit and trash wrapped in rotting meat. The real question is what the rest of this new scene is gonna do. Yungblud, Travis Barker and the rest of that scene can either distance itself from MGK or risk the entire idea of punk … Continue reading MGK WTF

Punk Politics #73

So spotify and Neil Young had a falling out because spotify wants to keep Joe Rogan. Now, I don’t understand Joe Rogan, but that’s irrelevant. The point is, we in the underground shouldn’t join this fight. This is wealthy people fighting over deplatforming a wealthy person. Punk and ska don’t have the legacy and machine of Neil and other 60’s protest rock. We need our exposure to share with one another and let everyone know they’re not alone. The fight isn’t taking away the trash voices. The answer is in numbers. We listen to spotify, but we obsessively play our … Continue reading Punk Politics #73
