Fishbone:
Legendary in the history of American Ska, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock, Fishbone started their twenty two-year long professional career in Los Angeles’s burgeoning, illustrious Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated. Angelo Moore’s ability to combine thought-provoking, humorous, social commentary with Fishbone brethren’s frenzied, up-tempo music and a frantic, euphorically entertaining stage show has cultivated their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history. Approaching the 25th anniversary of their self-titled EP, Fishbone is still touring worldwide and will be eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010!

Bio:
Spawned by an unruly posse in an L.A. junior high over 25 years ago, Fishbone, according to the group’s hyper-kinetic, elastic-voiced singer Angelo Moore, “started out in the music room playin’ Bootsy, Rick James, and Led Zeppelin covers and we just stuck together. We’d go over to Wood’s (rubber-fingered bassist, Norwood Fisher) mom’s house and play in the bedroom, bangin’ on pots and pans and whatever.”

“At first, we’d get together on weekends,” recalls trumpeter/singer Walter “Dirty Walt” Kibby II, “then it turned into every day. It’s the only band I’ve really been in. We had other names before Fishbone. Another name we had – Megatron – would get us gigs with heavy metal bands. So they’d book us with metal bands, and we’d get up there and play ska and funk and stuff, and these longhairs would be saying, “What the hell are these guys doing here?”

Fishbone’s eagerness to confront, provoke and cross-pollinate enabled them (along with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Untouchables et al) to help the early-80’s LA/Orange County music scene shake free of the unsavory grip of uninspired rock and “New Wave” hair bands. Since breaking through in 1985 with the frenetic, cross-media smash “Party at Ground Zero” (from their self-titled debut EP), the ‘Boners have continued to delight fans and confound radio programmers with eight more pungent servings (5 full-length, 3 EPs) of their joyful, eclectic noise. Through it all, the band has embraced, lampooned and shifted hairstyles and clothes like a stripped-gear chameleon – the constants are ENERGY and MOTION.

Ya see, even if some monolithic radio stations haven’t always sussed Fishbone’s straight-talk, quicksilver material and shoot-from-the-hip attack, live audiences around the world have been surrendering to the band’s stage flash and magical riddums with uninterrupted regularity. Such passionate devotion is not lost on Fishbone, who refer to their friends on the road as “The Familyhood.”

Come join “The Familyhood”
