Visa Application for Ska Nation: I Can’t Believe It’s Not Porkers!

With only one more sleep until the first instalment of Ska Nation for 2011, we are crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s before the event.  To round out our coverage of Ska Nation we bring you the final visa application with Pete Porker from the very special I Can’t Believe It’s Not Porkers.  Having already approved Los Capitanes for entry, Pete might just have luck on his side when it comes to his application.  Check it out here.

Visa Application for Ska Nation: The Funaddicts

Queensland based 11-piece Ska junkies, The Funaddicts are probably one of the longest-staying bands on the Ska Nation bill.  They’ve seen a hell of a lot more than we have, know a hell of a lot more than we do and have been doing “it” better than us for a long time.  So needless to say, we had high expectations of their application.  The good news is that they aren’t travelling to the bottom of Australia to be sent packing when they arrive.  Look over their application here.

Visa Application for Ska Nation: The Kujo Kings

There are few things that go without saying and one of those things is that The Kujo Kings can make or break a party.  So when it was their turn to apply for entry into Ska Nation we pretty much had already chalked them up.  In true Kujo style, they threw us a few curveballs and now we aren’t sure what to think.  Check out their application here.

Visa Application for Ska Nation: Menage-a-Ska

In 7 days from now the brass will be polished, the fridges will be stocked and there will be only a matter of hours till Ska Nation will open it’s doors for one of the greatest nights that Victoria will see this year.  In the meantime, we’re hard at work vetting the bands to ensure their entry into our party nation.

Today we have Menage-a-Ska in the interrogation booth and we discover there ain’t another band in the world like the Menage.  Their approval for entry may be completely dependent on their love and beer and curries.  Check out their application here.

Visa Application for Ska Nation: Loonee Tunes

With Ska Nation fast approaching we’re furiously vetting the bands to see if they are worthy to enter Ska Nation.  We’ve spoken to Jobstopper, The Bennies, Los Capitanes and Area-7 who have all been approved for entry and with 9 days till Ska Nation kicks off we’re furious pushing paper to validate entry for the remaining bands.

Today we’ve turned up the heat on Melbourne outfit Loonee Tunes and well, after hearing their answers to our hard-hitting questions, we’re not sure if we are allowed to enter! Check it out here.

Visa Application for Ska Nation: Area-7

Ska Nation takes their line-up very seriously; so serious in fact that Dying Scene has been asked to vet each and every band with a round of intense questioning that will determine whether or not they deserve a slot on the bill for the greatest night of ska Victorians will ever see (until next year).

We’re cranking up the heat, rolling up our sleeves and serving up each band the most hard hitting questions they’ve ever been forced to answer. If they answer well they will merit a final stamp of approval. If they answer poorly it’s immediate deportation to the rejected ranks of don’t-quit-your-day-job land.

Today we bring you the application for Australian music legends, Area-7.  They’ve been around a long time but Dying Scene is pretty sure they’ll rock harder than any other band on the line-up…maybe.  See if we let them into Ska Nation here.
