This week on In Defense of Ska, Fishbone bassist Norwood Fisher discuss the band’s wild career. Listen above, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Fisher gets into the nitty-gritty of Fishbone’s surreal career with moments like opening for Gallagher, hanging out with Karate Kid star William Zabka, and meeting Dave Grohl in the ’80s when he was in Scream. He also discusses the band’s connection to hip-hop (including name-drops of Run-DMC, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and more) and how it relates to their recent fall tour with GZA.

Elsewhere, Fisher admits that he initially thought Fishbone had invented a new genre: fast reggae. He speaks on being inspired by Funkadelic’s rhythm section, saying that “we were playing reggae rhythms, but speeding it up with punk-rock energy.” Hey, wait, that’s ska!
