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

One of the best rock docs ever!
21 November 2011 | by dougdenadaSee all my reviews

I'll keep it short. This band hanged my life when I thought I was the only black kid who "thought different". Have been a hardcore fan since 86'. Have gotten to know them and the film nails the vibe between Angelo and Norwood. I think the absence or even mention of John Bigham of Miles Davis fame, was a disappointment as he was the 7th member and not a founding member who thickened their sound on Reality of My Surroundings. The narration was Excellent by Lawrence Fishburne and the animations were a cool throwback to Fat Albert days. The ups and downs and the adventured of recovering a wayward guitarist (I won't spoil it), would make a great screenplay actually. I've turned a few friends on to this movie who had know idea of their influence and range that are now new fans twenty something years later. It is an excellent labor of love by the directors who took a lot of time with the band and the people who they have influenced, Flea, Gwen Steffani, George Clinton, Questlove, Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello to name a few, Great film making
