This Christmas will mark the publish date for the first ever Skunk Roundup zine (issue 1). This week we gave a little bit to our fans, readers and artists and released a compilation. This comp showcases 10 artists from around the world. Featuring new songs by some local favorites, you can find 10 songs that really tell a story about what is going on in the ska, punk, and other genres nowadays.
We hope you enjoy the record! If you feel so inclined you can also throw some $$ our way. All proceeds are split evenly between all 10 artists involved.

This week James Merendino, Director of famed cult punk classic, SLC Punk revealed the first teaser to the sequel to this famed flick. Some would say SLC PUNK doesn’t warrant a sequel by any means but here we are talking about it. I will save all the spoilers (cause i’m not a jerk), but it’s obvious that Merendino’s charm for quick witted lines and character development still ring true for this sequel.
SLC Punk 2: Punk’s Dead is slated at a Nov. 21st release date. For most up to date information, you can visit the official Facebook page.
Some would say ska never died. That it merely has been marinating in local scenes across the country for years while waiting for a perfect time to come out of the woodwork. And now is a good time as any to say…..Local Ska Bands UNITE! Across the country ska punk, ska, and ska revival bands are teaming up to show the country what they’re about. Details are a little limited now but we have some information for you below. Thanks to Costello Films, the whole Ska Revival Tour is being documented. So even if you can’t make it out, the whole action will be recorded. It’s like Sister Wives but with less Polygamy and more fist pumping.
