Streetlight Manifesto is probably my favorite band of all time. One may label them as ska but they are just so much more than that. As cheesy as it sounds, they've transcended ska into a genre of their own. They have a wide range of influences, everything from reggae to jazz to a little bit of polka to eastern European to much much more. Just sit down and listen to Everything Goes Numb, it's truly an epic masterpiece. Ok, I'm done now.
Your funky not a junkie but you know where to get it?
Also, I agree on streetlight. They are to ska what dragonforce is to power metal. Completely over the top. The guitar playing is so insane, as are the brass arrangements. And the lyrics are amazing. I don't know about you though, I only really liked Everything went numb and the Keasby Remix. I havent actually listened to the whole new CD (too much of the same)
