This week is Skalopnik Week here on the jello picnic website. Every morning, every Traffic Jam, we’re bringing you back to the glory days of checkered Vans and skanking.
But what if those glory days didn’t end? What if ska is still alive and well, in the hands of a generation that loves the genre and wants to push it forward? What if it’s been passed down to people like Jer from Skatune Network?
Tom Petty’s “Runnin’ Down A Dream” is already a fun track, but ska makes everything better. Listen to those horns! You tell me this isn’t a great time, and I’ll tell you you’re a bald-faced liar. And I’ll be right.
