For the past 31 years or so, Dick Lucas has had some pretty revolutionary ideas. Yet of all the incendiary concepts that have tumbled through the mangled British maw of the frontman for Citizen Fish and Subhumans, the most shocking is the belief that there will always be a place for ska music. Long before and long after soulless bands from Southern California squatted, gentrified, and ultimately ruined the once respectable genre, Lucas & Co. kept at it—seemingly indifferent to outsiders treading on their sacred sound. Granted, Citizen Fish's vision of ska is less crisp-suited Rude Boys picking it up (and picking it up, and picking it up) and more a gritty, blue-collar malaise that documents the plight of the dumpster-diving underclass. Long may Citizen Fish reign, with upstroked guitars and horns a-blazin'. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
