It's Christmas !

"A rare unplugged studio performance of 'Slow Bus Moving', Fishbone's take on emancipation of black people in the US. It was my favorite track from their Truth and Soul album. Sometime in the summer of 1988, when they were touring the Netherlands, I invited them to play in our tv show 'Fa. Onrust'. I asked them if they could play Slow Bus, and though they hardly played it in an acoustic set up, they granted my request." (c) VPRO 1988 bram van splunterenPRO
The song begins after a snippet of skankin to the beat live Sep 04 1988 @ Pop Park Festival Rotterdam, NL

  John Bigham has announced on instagram and facebook that he will be playing guitar with fishbone on the current september tour. Rocky is not on this tour as fishbone soldiers, who have seen the Portland show (first date of the tour), told us.

Phillip Fish Fisher has also posted a message on facebook (see below).

 Phillip Fish Fisher :

Then all of a sudden, John (JB) Bigham returned to his place amongst the body of The Bone. And it was stronger.. Then a new hope arose with a sound reminiscent of greater days. And the people waited eagerly to witness five of the Savage Seven testify with great reverence again.

OG fishbone lineup plays first gig in 23+years

by Denis

The rumors are now confirmed.  Fishbone played at a private event Saturday September 17th 2016 with its original lineup.  This had not happened in 23+ years.  The last time the original members of Fishbone were documented live together was precisely 24 years ago, at the Warfield in San Francisco, on September 18th 1992 (there were a few gigs through October 1992 where they probably played together).

The significance of this reunion gig is yet unclear. Is this a one off? Will they be touring together? It's certainly too soon to tell, and it's quite hard to make something out of the secrecy surrounding this historical event.  If it were not for Fish who published the reunion pic 10 days ago, this gig might very well have stayed unnoticed.  We are left with questions, and a shady 40 seconds instagram...

We hope that those fortunate enough to have attended this historical event enjoyed the show, and -who knows ?- made a soundboard recording for all the rest of us ;-)

History in the remaking?

The six OG members reunited for the first time since 1993, on September 7th 2016. Anything is possible !
