The Ongoing History of New Music encore presentation: A not-so-brief history of ska, part 2
As I said in the preamble to part one, ska seems to be one of those immortal musical genres. And like metal, goth, punk and a few others, ska has a rich, rich history that extends back decades. And while the music’s popularity is cyclical, it’s never gone away. In fact, ska occasionally roars back in a way that sometimes dominates our attention.
Part two of this not-so-brief history of ska will start with a quick recap of the Second Wave before moving into the Third Wave, a tsunami that’s still being felt today.

The Specials, Concrete Jungle
