The Rebel Black Dot Song o' the Day: SKApril!

Mu330, "Spilled My Drink" from Press (The Last Angry Rude Boy)

Skammentary: Never let it be said that I claimed self-sabotage was not partly to blame for the failure of romance in ska-punk songs.
"She wanted me to stay,
But I had to run away,
She wanted me to stay,
But I had to run away…"
"Spilled My Drink" is from the earliest phase of Mu330 & is pleasantly & distinctly less frenetic than Mu330's later "psycho ska" sound. I love Mu330's usual sound—they're SKApril All-Stars, for Rudy's sake, & I've traveled as far as St. Louis, their "mighty city by the mighty Mississippi" itself to see them play live—but I also appreciate variety as the spice of life.
