To add, General Public had some good songs, a lesser known band called the Skatalites, an even lesser known band from Tucson called Dave's Big Deluxe that was great in the 90s.

I was really heavy into Ska in the mid-90s before it died out. Ska was sort of underground but really cool. The whole swing craze kind of drowned out the Ska scene at that time when swing got mainstream and whatnot with Squirrel Nut Zippers and Zuit Suit Riot and all that crap. A lot of Ska bands were doing crossover or combined shows with swing bands because the group of fans were sort of similar, kids in funky old clothes and zuit suits. Suddenly all these nerdy swing kids were showing up to the ska shows and ska bands were even doing some swing or swing-like numbers trying to cash in on the mainstream money.

I miss those days before everything went downhill, cruising in my VW Bus with a 350W system and 7 speakers blaring the Specials and old live sets of The Police from the late 70s. :D 8)

I didn't get into the 90's resurgence, but I've been to quite a few shows. A band I played in shared the stage with the amazing Bim Skala Bim from Boston, and we played several shows with Against All Authority.

Buster Bloodvessel is the king.
