Subject: 3.1: Introduction In response to all of those ``Isn't ska some dance form of reggae?'' questions, I present the following historical background to the music we call ska, gleaned from liner notes I have lying about the place, various postings to (news:alt.music.ska), and sundry emailings with helpful ska fans. *** [August 96] The Hypertext Ska FAQ has moved to its final home! The new URL is <a href="http://twillis.com/ska/">http://twillis.com/ska/</a>, at the International House of Ska. This webified FAQ contains text, links and graphics that don't fit here in alt.music.ska. Please update your bookmarks! This is part 3, $Revision: 1.1 $, posted to (news:alt.music.ska), (news:rec.music.info), (news:alt.skinheads), (news:alt.answers), (news:rec.answers), and (news:news.answers). This FAQ is posted twice a month, whether it needs to be or not. This FAQ file is also available for anonymous ftp on the archive site rtfm.mit.edu as the file `pub/usenet/news.answers/music/ska-faq/part3'. This FAQ file is on the Web as URL:http://www.twillis.com/ska/faq/ Acks: Michael Cancilla (mailto:mcancill@polyslo.calpoly.edu) posted a long list of ska bands that I have incorporated into this FAQ. That list has grown to list over 500 bands! Mike Fragassi (mailto:mfragass@ucs.indiana.edu) emailed me about 10k in response to my request for more info and is still at it. Thanks Mikes! Thanks also to everyone else in a.m.s and other reaches of netspace who sent me info. Dance harder!

Bandlist ======== Subject: 3.3: *What are the names of some ska bands?* These names are culled from various sources, especially Michael Cancilla (mcancill@polyslo.calpoly.edu), Brian Rosenthal (brianr@skamusic.com) and others on alt.music.ska. Giusy Grasselli sent in more Italian bands. Hector Rivas (rivash@ing.ula.ve) sent info about Venezuelan bands. Thanks to everyone who sends me information. We now list over *760* bands! Yes, we finally go `A' to `Z'. The format: Bandname (Location) {Style} [time period] e.g. Fubars, The (Verona) {Funky ska} [1989-1992] So, please help! Send me any info you have for this little project, which I think will make this band list much more informative. Also, for bands with non-English names, I will alphabetize by the name, *including the article* (`Los,' `Die,' `La,' etc.). That is, `Les Enfants de St. Gall' are listed under `L,' even though, in a more multilingual world I would list them under `E.'
