Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore’s New Album finds the right balance between social consciousness and Introspection.

As the frontman for one of the most influential bands of the 80’s and 90’s, Fishbone singer and massive saxophone enthusiast Angelo Moore could easily rest on his laurels as a punk and funk pioneer. Like so many punk luminaries before him, an endless stream of increasingly self-derivative releases that exist as little more than an excuse to tour and play the classics would be forgivable. So it’s to his credit that the venerable singer is trying something new with his latest project Sacrifice by Angelo Moore & the Brand New Step.

Everyday Sunshine, The Story of Fishbone Documentary Voted best Ever!!

From the shifting faultlines of Hollywood fantasies and the economic and racial tensions of Reagan’s America, Fishbone rose to become one of the most original bands of the last 25 years. With a blistering combination of punk and funk they demolished the walls of genre and challenged the racial stereotypes and political order of the music industry and the nation. Telling it like it is, the iconic Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, a story about music, history, fear, courage and funking on the one.

At the heart of the film’s story is lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher who show how they keep the band rolling out of pride, desperation and love for their art. To overcome money woes, family strife, and the strain of being aging Punk rockers on the road, Norwood and Angelo are challenged to re-invent themselves in the face of dysfunction and ghosts from a painful past.

Featuring interviews with Flea, Gwen Stefani, Ice-T, Perry Farrell, Branford Marsalis, George Clinton, Tim Robbins, Gogol Bordello, ?uestlove, and others, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE traces the band’s history, influence, and struggle as individualistic, genre-blending artists up against an unforgiving music industry that threatens to pass them by.
