Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

2009 LP
2008 EP

I've recently been contacted by Ostrich, a member of this very interesting outfit from Tampa, Florida, USA. A blend of Ska, Punk Rock & Calypso, with a horn section & steel drums.

This post includes downloads of three selected tracksfrom the album (Swimming In The Summer, Commando & The Donkey Song) , but their 2008 EP & 2009 album (in full) are available to download via their website for $5 each. (All monies go directly to the band).

Have a listen & if you like what you hear then please invest the equivalent of 5 bucks...
