Fishbone Documentary - Party at Ground Zero!

Here’s a quick note from CORKZILLA about a recently viewed documentary about Fishbone, a seminal ska/punk/funk ensemble from Los Angeles that influenced numerous contemporary bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers even as they did not experience the same runaway success. It’s a band close to the ‘Zilla’s heart so we wanted to let our readers know about this stellar look at the band’s rise and fall.

The film, “Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone,” shows just how the band’s democratic approach, strong personalities and myriad of musical influences torpedoed any chances of the massive success many expected for them. It’s interesting from a musical perspective, but also serves as an allegory for how we can all handle our relationships and friendships with those who are close to us. Check it out! And if you’re in the Bay Area, you can check the still-touring Fishbone at the Independent tomorrow night.

As far as what wine to pair with a Fishbone song, that’s a tough call and a post for a different day. A trailer for the film can be viewed below:
