"Eclectic" is a word that often gets thrown around by lazy music journalists trying to describe a band, but it's truly the right word for describing Fishbone, who has been throwing ska, funk, hard rock, soul, and more into the mix for over three decades. To get a sense of their diversity - and overflowing talent - listen to "Party at Ground Zero", "Sunless Saturday", and "Everyday Sunshine", and try to wrap your head around the fact that these were all recorded by the same band. And that's just scratching the surface. This interview was for a preview article for the 2/6/16 Fishbone concert at Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara, for which the band's line-up included original vocalist / sax man Angelo Moore (aka Dr. Madd Vibe), bassist Norwood Fisher, and trumpeter Dirty Walt. It was done by phone on 1/29/16.
