Dub Next Door: Playlist for Sept. 24, 2010

Symarip's "Skinhead Moonstomp" is kind of a cover of Derrick Morgan's "Moon Hop." Roy Ellis a.k.a. Mr. Symarip will be performing at RiotFest in Chicago on October 10th. RiotFest is a 4-day music festival whose blog is here.

The ska blog Marco on the Bass unravels the tangled tale of Symarip. Marco plays bass for ska revivalists Bigger Thomas and tells a good story. He seems to personally know everybody from all the many generations of ska.
