Storyline

From the shifting faultlines of Hollywood fantasies and the economic and racial tensions of Reagan's America, Fishbone rose and became one of the most original bands of the last 25 years. With a blistering combination of punk and funk they demolished the walls of genre and challenged the racial stereotypes and the political order of the music industry and of the nation. EVERYDAY SUNSHINE is about music, history, fear, courage and funking on the one. Written by Pale Griot Film

Great movie even if you don't know the band
25 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone said this is a must see film for the fans of the band. I respectfully disagree. It is a must see film, period. I saw it during SXSW and I didn't know anything about the band (shame on me!) and I LOVED the movie. The characters are engaging, the story develops as if it was a narrative film, and of course the music is great. Racial issues are presented in a very refreshing tone. It has a great sense of humor that reflects the band's sense of humor and critique. Summing it up: it is a fun, moving and informative film. And then yes, I became a fan of the band. If you have a chance, don't miss it. You will be glad you didn't.
