Well, it turns out ska heroes Los Skarnales aren't quite dead yet. Sort of, anyway. I'd heard a while back that after a long run -- if I remember right, these guys had started not long before yours truly was going to ska shows, and that was more than a decade ago now -- the band was toast, but that's thankfully not entirely the case.
Turns out that the Skarnales have reincarnated somewhat, at least on a limited basis, as Felipe Galvan y sus Carnales; the blog on the band's MySpace site says they'll be "playin' all the classics," so keep your fingers crossed. The ex-and-maybe-now-current Skarnales haven't been sitting around, mind you, but have been branching out as Ryan Scroggins and the Trenchtown Texans (which, by the way, is a freakin' awesome band name), Proper Villain Soundsystem, and The Umbrella Man, all of whom sound pretty good. Glad to hear these guys didn't just hang it up & fade away; that would've been a damn shame.
(Oh, and Felipe Galvan y sus Carnales is looking for horn players. Drop 'em a line if you're up for it...)
