Everyday Sunshine2011

The Story of Fishbone

  • 4.0
From the shifting faultlines of Hollywood fantasies and the economic and racial tensions of Ronald Reagan's America, Fishbone rose to become one of the most original bands of the last twenty-five years. With a blistering combination of punk and funk they demolished the walls of genre and challenged the racial stereotypes and political order of the music industry and the nation. Telling it like it is, the iconic Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, a story about music, history, fear, courage and funking on the one. At the heart of the film'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. Featuring interviews with Flea, Gwen Stefani, Ice-T, Perry Farrell, Branford Marsalis, George Clinton, Tim Robbins, Gogol Bordello, Questlove and others, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE traces the band's history, influence and struggle as individualistic, genre-blending artists up against an unforgiving music industry that threatens to pass them by.

Blips of animation, flippant stories, candid recollections. It's a mosaic of humor, sadness, existentialism and microphone jarring rock. And, like the mark of any good documentary, 'Everyday Sunshine' manages to wrap you up in a subject that you may have not known about. The information is abundant, the delivery is kinetic, and the directors manage to cull some real electric quotes out of the band.

Solid package.
