Product Description

EVERYDAY SUNSHINE is a documentary about the band Fishbone, musical pioneers who have been rocking on the margins of pop culture for the past 25 years. From the streets of South Central-Los Angeles and the competitive Hollywood music scene of the 1980's, the band rose to prominence, only to fall apart when on the verge of "making it."

Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, an entertaining cinematic journey into the personal lives of this unique Black rock band, an untold story of fiercely individual artists in their quest to reclaim their musical legacy while debunking the myths of young Black men from urban America. Highlighting the parallel journeys of a band and their city, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE explores the personal and cultural forces that gave rise to California's legendary Black punk sons that continue to defy categories and expectations.

At the heart of Fishbone'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

Review

"The Los Angeles-born-and-bred band Fishbone, which delivered a bracing combination of rock, funk, punk, and ska, was one of the brightest lights of late-eighties alternative rock. This perceptive, plainspoken, frequently gripping documentary by Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler both measures the wattage of the band s early years and traces, with a mix of wisdom and sadness, the long fade. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, and featuring interviews with other eighties-rock veterans (including Les Claypool, of Primus; Vernon Reid, of Living Colour; and Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers), the film paints a portrait of a band that never became as big as it should have, and suggests that its failure was due both to internal dissension and to the stubborn conservatism of the record industry in matters of race, genre, and vision. The core of the film is the long professional marriage between the bassist and singer Norwood Fisher and the saxophonist and singer Angelo Moore. Like many African-American teen-agers, they were bused into predominantly white and affluent neighborhoods, and they made music as perceptive outsiders trying to understand their surroundings and to preserve their identity. Many bands have a might-have-been story, but few have a story that reflects such rich and paradoxical ideas" --Ben Greeman, New Yorker
