Hello to everyone and a happy NEW YEAR!
I just wanted to give y'all a quick update on a project I'm starting. Back in August, I asked a question to my brothers-in-law: what came first - ska or reggae? Their response: Reggae. The correct answer is: ska! Well, I'm on a quest to write a paper about ska to show how it became an eventual influence on reggae. I'm not talking about bands such as Mustard Plug, Five Iron Frenzy, Dance Hall Crashers, Bim Skala Bim... we're going back farther! Do the "Skatellites" ring a bell?
If you have any help for this (besides wikipedia... this is an outside wikipedia assignment), give me a hollah!
