Brought to you by FUNKNSTUFF.NET and hosted by Scott “DR GX” Goldfine — musicologist and author of “Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk” ― “TRUTH IN RHYTHM” is the interview show that gets DEEP into the pocket with contemporary music’s foremost masters of the groove.

Featured in TIR Episode 167 (2 parts): Bassist-composer John Norwood Fisher, a founding member of Los Angeles’ infamous rock-soul-funk-ska-alternative band Fishbone. Since bursting onto the scene in 1985 with the festive doomsday anthem, “Party at Ground Zero,” the group has released seven studio albums along with several EPs and live recordings.

Among Fishbone’s other classic songs are “Cholly,” “Everyday Sunshine,” “Bonin’ in the Boneyard,” “Swim,” and covers of “Freddie’s Dead,” “Shakey Ground” and “Everybody Is a Star.” In addition, Fishbone has made its mark in film and television, and Norwood Fisher has also stepped out with other projects including leading the revolving-roster funk-rock collective known as Trulio Disgracias.

Here he addresses the entire history of both Fishbone and Trulio Disgracias, top memories and highlights, struggles, heroes and influences, and looks ahead to the future. The conversation even turns political during the final few minutes.
