This was a really great film and does and excellent job at telling the story of the formation of this seminal L.A. band through early years and up to the point of the split of the original lineup. The movie tells the story of the musical path they have blazed and the trials and tribulations of staying true to their vision without compromise.

The only thing I wish it would have covered is everything that they've done since then as they've soldiered on through a few lineup and record label changes, and still continue on to today.

But I see why they had to stop where they did as the movie covers the subject in such great detail that it would have made a 3+ hour flick. Great film making and highly entertaining whether you're a fan of the band or not. This film just might make you one.

According to RottenTomatoes.com, this is simply the best movie of 2011. Directors Anderson and Metzler manage the tour de force of making a documentary focussing on an obscure yet incredibly influential Los Angeles rockband, Fishbone (Crazy Glue, Fishbone's latest record) and at the same time amking it relevant for all audiences. The movie addresses the racial history of Los Angeles, brotherhood and its limits, creative processes,... while staying true to the uniqueness of the band. A must see !

This documentary is a must see for any music lover that enjoys hearing about the history of how a band gets started and how music is created. Musicians have many different influences and it's interesting to learn about how a band like Fishbone (who is so unique) was formed, and why they did what they did, and continue to do so. In an age where real, true art is lacking and pseudo musicians are thriving, it's refreshing to see people who take their craft seriously, through all the adversity and difficulties musicians face in the music business. You have musicians, and then you have designers of music. The members of Fishbone are designers. Although they do not have millions of dollars from record sales, or a billion fans, they have the respect of their peers, and that is nothing short of honorable.

If you laughed and cried during The Story of Anvil, then you will definitely appreciate Everyday Sunshine. The story shows the promising rise of one of the greatest music acts that didn't quite materialize in the mainstream like the Chili Peppers and Jane's Addiction, even though Fishbone is every bit as great as both. Everyone used to call James Brown the hardest working man in show business...well then Fishbone is the hardest working, most bada$$, funky, rockin', jamming band in all of any type of business! I have seen Fishbone on many occasions and I am always leaving the show feeling like I have just been through a workout. The story of Fishbone is an in depth look at the beginnings of what should have been the Greatest Band In Rock N' Roll, in my humble opinion they are the greatest band I have ever had the pleasure and honor to witness live. Two of the best live shows I have ever seen are Fishbone and Primus in 1991 and King's X and Fishbone in ca 2003. Through the good times, bad times, and all the adversity that comes with bands breaking up, Fishbone (Angelo and Norwood) have continued to put together a solid group of musicians that bring the FUNK every time they play! The documentary leaves the fans hoping for a possible reunion of the original members (not sure about Fish), but, until that time when the universe aligns along the axis of Fishbone; Rocky, Dre, John, and Jay (and Welcom Back Dirty Walt, we missed you) are each seminal musicians themselves who add to the eclectic entity known as Fishbone and provide one of (if not the) greatest rock shows here on the face of the earth. I only hope that anyone and everyone who has ever listened to Fishbone, rediscovers this great band through this documentary.Read more ›

I've been a big fan of Fishbone since I was back in middle school, about the same time when Reality Of My Surroundings first came out. I was quite pleased to see a documentary come out, and even more pleased at just how good it is! I mean, being a fan I was sure to enjoy it regardless, but the documentary is exceptionally well done and may even appeal to those unfamiliar with the band. But I'm sure it will mostly be fans that see this film. But that's no surprise-that's Fishbone's career!
The film follows the band from it's genesis in the ghettos of L.A., to their discovery, record label signing, their near-misses with fame, breakdown of their guitar player, and eventual breakup. Though there is quite a bit of footage of the present lineup of the band(which includes only two original members now), the storyline of the film pretty much ends with the breakup of the original band members.
As I had said before, the film is very well done and far, far beyond any kind of VH1 music documentary. I'd highly suggest it to people who aren't familiar with the band as is provides insight not only into one of the most influential, talented and misunderstood bands of the last 30 years, but it also gives you a good look at how clueless the music industry is(but that's something many Fishbone fans are quite well aware of). Record companies have no clue what to do with a black band unless they fall squarely and nicely into their "black music" package. Granted, Fishbone would have had a hard time trying to find a niche had they been white, considering how all over the board, outrageous and unclassifiable their sound is. But considering they are black, it's all the more confusing("Too white for the blacks and too black for the whites" as George Clinton states here).
