What at first seemed like an April Fool’s Day prank has instead turned into a 4/20 miracle. Jeff Rosenstock, the prolific DIY-punker, released Ska Dream—a full ska reimagining of his 2020 album No Dream.
It shouldn’t surprise any rudeboy that Rosenstock had some more ska in him. He was the lead singer for the ska band The Arrogant Sons Of Bitches.
Rosenstock wrote this of the album on Bandcamp:
As with most things ska in my life, what started out as a fun goof with friends eventually morphed into ‘Hey, what if we tried to make it good though?’ All of us have a pretty deep history playing and touring the country in punk/ska bands. We all understand the stigma that comes along with ska, we’ve all dealt with the pitfalls of it, and we’ve all kept on truckin’ regardless. If you are one of those people who loves music as long as it isn’t ska, that’s cool, we see you. This record isn’t for you and you don’t have to listen to it. Byeeee. Okay, everyone else, we see you too, we love you and check it out, SKA DREAM is real.
