TRUE LEGENDS. Icons of the alternative ska/punk/funk scene since the early 80's, FISHBONE continue to be at the forefront in the music world by their relentless touring for over 30 years. Singer/ sax player Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher have carried the torch through all the fads and trends in the music industry and have never sold out their integrity. Fishbone has influenced so many bands through the years such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bad Brains, Primus, Sublime, No Doubt, Gogol Bordello, the punk scene of the 80's, the alternative scene of the late 80's/ early 90's and 3rd wave ska scene of the late 90's; each and every musician will admittedly pay homage to a band that broke down the barriers between rock, punk, funk, ska and reggae. They created music that branched out into a plethora of genres of music. Their music has been controversial and inspiring covering important topics such as poverty, racism, fascism, nuclear war, and oppression. Albums like "Truth and Soul", "The Reality of My Surroundings" and "Give a Monkey a Brain and He'll Swear He's the Center of the Universe", is timeless and groundbreaking and continues to influence a new generation, no matter what is happening in the music world.
