Only the singer. The rest of the band joined up with the Long Beach Dub Allstars, I believe that's their name =/, maybe not... Anyway, they formed a band called Long beach Short Bus. Check 'em out.

Catch 22 - Keasby Nights. After that cd, they suck
The Aquabats!
Operation Ivy
Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution
Early Less Than Jake
Reel Big Fish
The Specials


Honestly though, Big D and The Kids Table is the best Ska band out there. You're not going to find much better than that.
The Catch 22 Keasby Nights cd, Streetlight Manifesto, and Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution are all the same people, Just from different time periods with a different band name.

Yeah I didnt post Catch cause Streetlight is the same, and the rest of their bands. But Big D is da best. But the Flaming Tsunamis ARE THE BEST!!!!And I checked out Long Beach Short Bus..one word.....horrible...I just dont like them, its not the same, and its like all slow and shit. But I never knew the bassist and drumer made a band after Sublime

it's called 'give it up' but because everycalls it that it's been officailly renamed as: 'give it up ( the dirty hot sex song)'

If you like that then I'm sure your love the rest of their album : Kona town

I personally don't like 3rd wave very much. I would like to re-recomend Operation Ivy and the Specials, maybe the best ska bands ever.

They are the orgasmic mixture of Ska, and your average Hardcore Punk Rock.

Mmmmm... Seriously, if you haven't heard them, go check them out.

I recently listened to a couple songs by Big D and the Kids Table, and I like what I hear. Right now, I'm downloading one of their albums.

Edit: Actually, I'm not, because torrentspy is ghey.

The only ska I'm really a fan of is the overly-commercialised camp ska-punk from the likes of RBF and LTJ. Nothing better than some of that in summer.

Mike, I'd rather have a full album rather than a collection of random (but probably really good) songs. I'm just wierd like that.

I happen to be wearing My Big D and The Kids Table Shirt right now. The How It Goes Album is definately my favorite.

There's plenty of music videos on their website, if you want to check them out free, and legally. A couple of the live ones are misleading though. They sound... off. And A couple of them the recording is whacked.

Well, How it Goes just finished downloading, and I'm listening to it right now. I'm only on track 3 or so, though. LAX is fuckin' hilarious.
