Ska Patrol is a Norwegian band playing, yes you guessed right, ska. I think it is one of best ska bands in the world. If you don't know what ska is, either check out the Wikipedia article on it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ska), or just listen to two of Ska Patrol's singles.

Now that you are in awe because of the astounding music, you might be asking where you can find more of this Arctic band? Well it so happens that I have uploaded one EP and one LP by them.

It's pretty standard stuff to be honest.

I was a big ska fan for a very very very long time and I still am, but nowadays I only like the bands that managed to set themselves apart and not just fall into the stereotypical ska mold. These guys didn't. They're good, but pretty generic when it comes to the genre.

They're definitely great if you still love all the Planet Smashers/Goldfinger/Mustard Plug stuff.

That's your opinion, but I appreciate that you checked them out. The best songs are on the album, not the two singles.

Two words: Streetlight Manifesto!

Bit late but I'm completely addicted to Everything Goes Numb now. Ska Patrol is miles away from that.

Streetlight Manifesto is different from Ska Patrol yes. Ska Patrol plays strictly ska, while Streetlight Manifesto has added other genres with ska, namely pop punk.

Streetlight is pretty much their own genre as nothing really sounds like them. I definitely would say that Ska Patrol is more pop-punk than Streetlight is, as most third-wave bands have evolved into basically being some sort of pop-punk with horns combo.

This is of course, just an argument of genre, which means of course that no one will agree and everyone will be pissed.

Well, on Saturday I was on Ska Patrol's gig here in my home town, and they are really good live, lots of energy, gangvocals and skanking.
