As Aly predicted The Lighthouse in Deal has proven to be a first class party of live music. Last night The Indecision hurtled through some excellent ska and bluebeat before an audience as mixed as the cast of characters in the BBC's current soap, Dickensian(worth watching if for no other reason than the joy of seeing Stephen Rea performing the detective, Bucket, in the style of Bill Nighy).

I know there are no end of ska tribute bands out there but The Indecision played some good originals and winkled out some less well known stuff too.

I picked up a flyer there advertising The London Ska Festival which runs over Easter weekend 24 -27 March - more than enough ska for anyone I should think.

Glad the Lighthouse is coming up trumps Will. I liked the range of stuff they put on, and good quality too. I have a sneaking feeling a certain Renton J, of this parish, will be DJing at the London Ska Festival! Yes, plenty of ska bands around, but if they're good, it's always worth an evening in a good boozer.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon at The Lighthouse - Ma Polaine's Great Decline

I'd imagine Ma Polaine's Great Decline were perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon Will. I've considered booking them for Jamboree, but I'm not sure they've got the roof raising qualities I'm after for a Saturday night.

PS Aly's probably right about my DJing at the International Ska Festival. They usually let me know what I'm doing at the very last minute. Last year I had to cook up a five hour set of vintage ska and rhythm and blues with only a few days notice. Which was a lot of fun, if a bit 'skin of yer teeth' stressful.
