Bryan’s Year In Review 2011


2011 was a great year for me personally. Got married, went to Paris for our Honeymoon, and moved to Jersey city. 2011 was also great in music and movies as well but think 2012 will be even better with movies. The Hobbit, Dark Knight Rises and the Avengers! Wowza! In 2012, ReadJunk.com/Ska Punk Other Junk will be 15 years old! The site is still going (not strongly haha, but still going). I’ll also be starting a new web venture that I’m looking forward to starting but I’ll talk more about in the upcoming months. For now, see what I liked/disliked of 2011! Happy New Year Folks!

Video: Xmas Time in NYC featuring music from Carbon Leaf and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones


Happy Holidays everyone! It’s that fun time of year again and I wanted to make some videos of Xmas lights & stuff around Jersey City and New York City. My wife Kristen and I went to Rockefeller Center, 34th Street, Central Park, 5th Ave, and loads of other places. We put up with the crowds of NYC so you don’t have to! Watch my videos below…

Mighty Mighty Bosstones – “The Magic of Youth”


Record Label: Big Rig Records
Genre: Ska
Band Link: www.bosstonesmusic.com
Buy on Amazon.com

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ ninth album proves that the band still has what it takes to make an excellent ska album! “The Magic of Youth” is more in lined with their previous album “Pin Points and Gin Joints” than their very early stuff. Honestly, I’m fine with that since I really liked “Pin Points and Gin Joints.” With their last two albums, the band has gone back to their ska roots and have made some catchy, solid skankable tunes!

Listen to the new Mighty Mighty Bosstones track “Like A Shotgun” on TheNewRecord.com


Judging by this song, can’t wait to hear the new Bosstones album “The Magic of Youth”! The new Mighty Mighty BossTones album is set for release on December 6th and the first single “Like a Shotgun” is streaming and available for download now on TheNewRecord.com. The Boston-bred skacore octet have been in business for nearly 25 years and are proud to be still churning out great music. The Magic of Youth is an eleven song album that has everything a BossTones fan could ever want. Ripping sing along choruses, classic ska core beats, vibrant horn lines and of course the raspy heartfelt voice and lyrics of Dicky Barrett.

ReadJunk Playlist - Christmas and Hanukkah Songs

ReadJunk Playlist: December 2010 (The Holiday Playlist)


We’re in the middle of the holiday season and what better way to celebrate with an overload and abundance of Jingle Bells and Santa songs! Yippee! Most of these tracks are ones I like, some aren’t but felt the need to list them anyway. I tried to find some Hanukkah songs but only managed to find a couple. I did brief blurbs for the first 30 tracks, then just listed the rest because what can you say about the same songs over and over again? If I missed a song, post it in the comments!

ReadJunk Playlist: November 2010 (Skanksgiving Edition Playlist)

ReadJunk Playlist: November 2010 (Skanksgiving Edition Playlist)


Bad ska puns aside, I’ve been meaning to do a ska playlist for some time now but felt like now was a good time. Pretty much, I couldn’t think of a November playlist theme. Voting songs? eh, maybe. Thanksgiving songs? Do they even exist? This November “Skanksgiving“ playlist is simply a list of my favorite ska bands and songs. Songs I’ve listened to over the years, ones that got me into ska music, etc. Just an excellent mix of Jamaica ska, 2 tone, Third wave, ska punk, ska core and every other sub-genre you can think of. Check it out rude boys and rude girls!

Opening Bands: Teenage Bottlerocket, The Flatliners
Band Links: www.bosstonesmusic.com, www.teenagebottlerocket.com, www.theflatliners.com

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones finally played New York City, after all these years of avoiding it. Yes Yes we know the Yankees suck but that doesn’t mean you have to ignore New York guys haha! They have played New Jersey the last 2 years but haven’t played NYC in years. Last night they played a sold out (and quite packed) show at Irving Plaza. The boys from Boston (and all over now) played great and so did the openers (The Flatliners and Teenage Bottlerocket)!

Mighty Mighty Bosstones – “Pin Points and Gin Joints”


Record Label: Big Rig
Genre: Ska
Band Link: www.bosstonesmusic.com
Buy on Amazon.com

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are back with their first full-length studio album in over 7 years. “Medium Rare” had some new songs on it, but it was a mostly a B-sides rarities album. Either way, it’s been a long ass time since ska fans have gotten new material from the boys in plaid. “Pin Points and Gin Joints” makes the wait worth while!
