Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone

Angelo Moore fronting Fishbone at the Palace in Hollywood, CA - May 17, 1985
So who actually was able to see Everyday Sunshine on PBS tonight? I'm curious as to the markets it played, as the Northwest markets just aren't hip to the AfroPoP series (film kicked off season four of the documentary series -- this year hosted by Comedians / Daily Show contributor Wyatt Cenac).

We already previewed the doc earlier in the week, but I'm curious what you thought about the doc, the relationship between Norwood Fisher and Angelo Moore and Fishbone's place in music history? I've always wondered what the band could have achieved if Kendall Jones and Chris Dowd hadn't left the group after their almost breakthrough release (The Reality of My Surroundings), as the band just seemed to get further and further out there -- mainly Angelo Moore. I still appreciate the releases that came later, but they were miles from what they could have done.
