Access All Areas: Fishbone

From Access All Areas, 11:45 pm on 26 February 2011

Fishbone formed in 1979 in East Los Angeles, playing a fusion of funk, rock and ska delivered with hardcore punk attitude. Fishbone was a disparate, all-black oddball crew who gained a sizable cult following but never quite crossed over to a mainstream audience. They were the 'live' act no-one wanted to follow on stage. For Access All Areas Trevor Reekie talks to founding member Norwood Fisher about the tumultuous legacy of Fishbone.
