The best band on the planet has a new album out...

Fishbone has a new studio record out it's called "Still Stuck in your Throat" it's not actually available here in the states yet, so if you're a huge fan of the band like me ya' gotta order it from here and pay a lil extra dough to get it to your doorstep (it's approx $18.98 us currency, that's with shipping and handling ya da ya da)

I'm listening to the album for the 1st time right now. I'm on the 5th track "We Just Lose our Minds", it clocks in at 9:42. The chorus, bridge and horns are amazing, sounds like vintage Fishbone in there prime...

"Behind Closed Doors" is another standout track, infectious horn line, killer hook and Dre does some toast'n at the end of the tune, f**k'n awesome! If radio had a clue they would start playing this tune (they don't and won't)

The 3rd generation lineup of Fishbone is bringing it!!

Let me digest this album some more, then I'll do a proper review on it...

I'm hoping when they get back to the states in Dec they start booking some NY shows.

I watched a brilliant movie last night I know I'm not alone. I highly endorse this movie...also picked up the new ISIS album yesterday, I've got most of there earlier work, and I dig it. I would love to shoot the band at some point.

On deck I'm shooting The Gym Class Heroes on Monday and then on the 7th "I can't fucking wait to see Celtic Frost"

I've been a huge fan for ages. The last time I saw the band was 1985 with Voi Vod. I remember vividly picking up Morbid Tales, getting it home unwrapping the vinyl and from the moment the needle hit the record being completely blown away.

The artwork was amazing, photos were cool, lyrics cryptic. I pounded that album in my skull, played it non-stop everywhere. I made copies on cassette for all my buds, most of them didn't get it. Fuck em, I left them to there Led Zeppelin and proceeded to master my Tom Warrior *death grunt*

The band fell off a little in the late 80's early 90's, started dressing like Cinderella and using cans of Aquanet (there forgiven for that) the newest album is a return to form...

Nov 8th is my B-Day, I'll probably be sleeping most of the day away recovering from the Celtic Frost gig...
