Fishbone's Norwood Fisher on Brainwashing, Breakups, Ska-Punk, and Loving Life

It's a dark night in California and Fishbone bass player Norwood Fisher's forearms strain as he applies a vicious chokehold to the throat of childhood friend and bandmate Kendall Jones, whose eyes bulge from their sockets. He's nearly unconscious from the lack of oxygen to his brain.



Still, Kendall throws elbows, fists, and the full weight of his body against the force of the attack; and his two younger brothers, who've traveled there with Fisher to stop a religious brainwashing by their domineering father, have seen enough. "Let him go or we gon' fuck you up! If he really wants to be here, let him stay." And the would-be kidnappers hop back in their van and roll out.



For Norwood, it's just another wild night in the life of Fishbone.
