Album Review

Although Fishbone has not troubled the charts in over a decade, the Los Angeles-based ska/punk band never broke up or stopped touring; on the contrary. With only singer/saxophonist Angelo Moore and bassist John Norwood Fisher remaining from the original lineup, the group has passed the 20-year mark as a performing unit, which is long enough for it to have become established in the '80s nostalgia circuit. Not surprisingly, its last two albums have been live collections, Live at the Temple Bar and More (2002) and Live in Amsterdam (2005). The guest-star-filled The Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx (2000) was the band's last studio album until Still Stuck in Your Throat, the title of which is both a play on Fishbone's name and a reminder that the group hasn't ever gone away. Like many bands making a new album after many years, especially those that have undergone extensive personnel changes, the group seems to have been concerned with delivering tracks that sound like classic Fishbone. Those frantic ska rhythms and that belligerent punk attitude are therefore in place, along with Fishbone's characteristic quirkiness in titles like "Jack Ass Brigade," "Let Dem Ho's Fight," and the slightly dated "Party with Saddam." Moore, Fisher, and co. also evoke such funk predecessors as Parliament-Funkadelic, notably in the lengthy "We Just Lose Our Minds." But if Still Stuck in Your Throat sounds convincingly like a Fishbone record, that's not to say it sounds like a great one. David Kahne, who produced some of their great albums, returns to mix this one, but he would have been more useful in his old job, helping to sort out arrangements and performances that sometimes become raucous to the point of near-chaos. It isn't until the end with their cover of Sublime's "Date Rape" (repeated from the tribute album Look at All the Love We Found) that the current members of Fishbone actually sound like they're enjoying themselves on an album they probably would prefer not to call a comeback attempt.

Customer Reviews

fishbone still red hot!

great to see these dudes back with a solid album... forever moore and party with saddam are awesome!!

Always a suprise!

Fishbone will always twist the barriers to the solid foundation of musical genres creating their own space. There are great songs on here and a few that " you have to be in the mood for " which would be the thrashier tunes for me. You can never go wrong with a Fishbone CD! support this band! They create music as an art form in a world of prefabricated hits.

Covincingly Fishbone!!!

I have to say it was with apprehension that I approached a "fishbone with a new line up" especially after losing interest years ago when they totally lost me with chim chim's b.a.r. (Sorry guys). I must admit I did't even listen to all of chim chim so don't mistake me for an authority on that album PLEASE!
I'm going to go on record as saying this album is the shhh I was wishing for all along! The new band is convincing as well. The energy is 100% genuine & yes 100% FISHBONE. Listen for yourself. This is indeed good Fishbone in my opinion. Still some songs I might not be "in the mood for" at all times, but even those have their place, (i.e. speeding on the interstate). While songs like "party with saddam", "forever moore"(a song for angelo's daughter rumor has it), and "behind closed doors" are meant for frequent rotation! Tracks 1 & 10 are hot too. Track 11 is just for you snowboarders out there!!!
And nothing about this album sounds forced to me...
-Support this band with pride-

Combining equal parts of deep funk, high-energy punk, and frantic ska, the Los Angeles-based Fishbone was one of the most distinctive and eclectic alternative rock bands of the late '80s. With their hyperactive, self-conscious diversity, goofy sense of humor, and sharp social commentary, the group gained a sizable cult following during the late '80s, yet they were never able to earn a mainstream audience. Led by vocalist/saxophonist Angelo Moore, the band formed in 1979 while the members were still...
