FROM THE BOX: Fishbone article circa 1985

Fishbone became an instant favorite when I saw the video for “? (Modern Industry)” in 1985, but at a time when finding an obscure band on a major label (Columbia Records) meant having to travel 200 miles because your podunk town couldn’t even special order it (anyone remember “special ordering” an album?).

Anyway, Fishbone were once a brand new band with major label access, so to find a magazine article on them was an event. I liked this article (magazine unknown) not only because they talk about songs that weren’t on their debut EP, but because of the photo that was taken in the same room as that on the cover of the EP.
