C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Fishbone

"Party at Ground Zero" is probably the single best party song ever written.

I met these guys when they came on tour through Missoula, Montana, back in 1986. That was fairly early in their careers and they were young and incredibly agile onstage; it was, in fact, one of the most wildly entertaining shows I could remember seeing. Of course, we didn't exactly get top-tier acts in Missoula, but I've seen a lot of shows since then, and it was great. They were also very approachable, unlike a lot of musicians. They were huge Frank Zappa fans, it seems -- and it shows up in their musicianship.
