What do you get when you combine funk, punk and ska? You get the sounds of the Los Angeles-based Fishbone, hailed as one of the most eclectic alternative rock bands of the late 1980s.
Still led by vocalist/saxophonist Angelo Moore, Fishbone formed all the way back in 1979 and has had some 19 members come and go. In addition to Moore, the current incarnation also includes John Norwood Fisher, Walter Kibby II, John Steward, Rocky George and Jay Armant. Nearly all of them were involved in the making of the documentary film "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone," which debuted at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 19, 2010. It was later screened at more than 100 film festivals in 20 countries, winning 12 awards for Best Documentary.
Fishbone is known for its 'goofy sense of humor' (according to Billboard), which extends straight to its past album titles. They include 1993's "Gave a Monkey a Brain and He'll Swear He's the Center of the Universe," and 1996's "Chim Chim's Badass Revenge." They were followed by the turn-of-the-century disc "Fishbone and the Family Nextperience Present: The Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx" and 2006's "Still Stuck In Your Throat."
In February 2013, Fishbone posted an announcement on their website that keyboardist Dre Gipson ended his full-time involvement with the band to focus on a new project called Hunter Green. Fishbone was in the middle of a US tour at the time, and Freddie Flint filled in the rest of the way. A few months later, Fisher was named the new keyboardist and it was finally announced the band was working on a new album.
