Fishbone: Fishbone

Album Notes

Fishbone: Angelo Moore, Fish, John Norwood Fisher, Kendall Rey Jones, Christopher Dowd, Walter Kibby II.

Fishbone's debut is a way-ahead-of-its-time mix of pop-punk-metal-ska-funk, somewhat reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Living Color but with a sense of humor (see "Voyage to the Land of the Freeze Dried Godzilla Fart"). A Police influence can also glimpsed occasionally, as in the shimmering guitar and reggae accents of "Modern Industry," but the music here is mostly sui generis; in fact, this is one of the rare mid-'80s major label albums whose vintage can't be instantly guessed from its drum sound.
