Luckily for everyone Fishbone is still around and still playing. Although the personnel have changed a lot over the years, the concept of hardcore funk/punk/ska/ is still intact. A sort of Ska version of Parliament/Funkadelic would more or less begin to describe them. They were completely unique when they first landed on the scene in 1977. By the time they secured their first label deal (Sony) and their first single (Party At Ground Zero) they had a huge following and Party At Ground Zero has been a favorite song (even being touted as one of the 500 greatest rock tracks of all time) with a lot of people.
So I may be preaching to the choir tonight - but it's Friday (rapidly becoming Saturday) and it's the weekend and it's time to increase the voltage.
