From Fishbone

In honor of the spirit and artistic contributions of the late Bradley Nowell, who passed away 20 years ago; LA’s legendary ska-punk-rockers, Fishbone debuts their virtual reality music video of Sublime’s “Date Rape” in “360° Experience”, live from The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA. Sublime originally released the song “Date Rape” back in 1992, off their LP 40 oz to Freedom.

“With all due respect to Bradley Nowell and the rest of the Sublime family, this is one of the many Sublime songs that cuts my heart, but its the main one I wish Fishbone would have written,” says co-founder and bass player Norwood Fisher.

Everyday Sunshine ~ The Story of Fishbone (Trailer)

From FishboneDocumentary
“EVERYDAY SUNSHINE is a documentary about the band Fishbone, musical pioneers who have been rocking on the margins of pop culture for the past 25 years. From the streets of South-Central Los Angeles and the competitive Hollywood music scene of the 1980’s, the band rose to prominence, only to fall apart when on the verge of “making it.”

Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, an entertaining cinematic journey into the personal lives of this unique Black rock band, an untold story of fiercely individual artists in their quest to reclaim their musical legacy while debunking the myths of young Black men from urban America. Highlighting the parallel journeys of a band and their city, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE explores the personal and cultural forces that gave rise to California’s legendary Black punk sons that continue to defy categories and expectations.

At the heart of the film’s story is lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher who show how they keep the band rolling, out of pride, desperation and love for their art. To overcome money woes, family strife, and the strain of being aging Punk rockers on the road, Norwood and Angelo are challenged to re-invent themselves in the face of dysfunction and ghosts from a painful past.”
