Fishbone's story has everything ­ humour, conflict, break-ups and breakdowns. This band's revolutionary blend of punk, funk and soul defied racial categorisation and united the divided communities of America. While critically acclaimed by their peers from Ice T to Gwen Stefani and George Clinton, their hyper-energetic on-stage antics and boundless creativity sadly did not lead to commercial success. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, this film tells the fascinating stories of brainwashing and kidnapping allegations that rocked the band's 25-year career, and also how their optimism has kept them going despite the setbacks. What Variety is calling 'an inspirational happy film about failure'. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Music and Film Festival.
