Home > Artists > Fishbone


Origin: United States

Genres: R&B/Soul/Funk, Rock

Los Angeles' Fishbone formed in the late 1970s around singer and sax player Angelo Moore. The band's debut album, In Your Face (1986), featured an original blend of ska, reggae, funk, and jazz. Released two years later, Truth and Soul added a dose of heavy rock to the mix. For many critics, the band reached its creative peak with The Reality of My Surrondings (1991), and while critical acclaim didn't translate into mass success, Fishbone managed to build a loyal following thanks to their fiery live sets. Despite frequent personnel changes over the last two decades, the combo kept its trademark passion and spirit alive. 2011 saw the release of Crazy Glue.
