Fishbone - When Problems Arise

Directed by Gary Weis & Toni Basil

I just watched the Fishbone documentary Everyday Sunshine (which I recommend) so this band is fresh in my mind.  This was always my favorite video of theirs.

A few points of interest:

1) First of all, how innovative was this band?!  They should have been bigger.

2) Know what else should have been bigger?  Fish’s kick drum.

3) I love the weird little dances that clash with the sexy hula girls.

4) Speaking of dancing, this vid was codirected by Toni Basil!  The other director, Gary Weis, did Paul Simon’s “Call Me Al” video. 

5) I love this video and I love this band.
