This week’s podcast features a group that has been saving ska since '97. Ethnomusicology doctorate candidate, Kathleen Danser talks about how ska has been part of her most recent life journey how the Mad Bombers Society capture that extra rhythm of the genre.

Having toured Western Canada and playing locally at legendary venues like the Side Track Café, Mad Bomber Society has been playing ska for over 20 years. Their debut album A-tom-ic A-Go-Go was self-released in 2001. In the late-2000's they took a break and regrouped in 2011 for Whitehorse's Sunstroke Festival. The sophomore album Butchers, Stompers & Amp; Cheat was released in early-2012.

Kat Danser’s primary goal is “to use music as a space for personal exploration and as a method to strengthen communities”. She also holds a Masters in Musicology from the University of Alberta and has completed her PhD coursework toward a full doctorate in Musicology specializing in blues and roots music in the American South.

Capital City Records Song of the Week is an affiliated member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.
