Photo by Mark Lacy. 30 ■ People What is this world coming to? If you ask Walter Kibby II, he might reply "the bus is goin' mighty slow," in reference to the weakening social consciousness of post civil rights America. For Kibby's band, Fishbone, life is grim. Tales of racism, hatred and greed in the streets of America today is the subject matter of many of their songs. Kibby expects that things could get better, if it weren't for the general acceptance of the status quo in our country. On their latest album, Truth and Soul. Fishbone tells of the "Slow Bus Movin'." It takes place in a time where Martin Luther King established just enough social reform to make Americans, blacks and whites alike, content with their civil liberties, but it wasn't enough. Americans, now with more than they had before, fell victim to apathy, and the wheels of progress slowed down. There was no one to continue the struggle of Martin Luther King, until now. Kibby has been working overtime, touring the country with Fishbone to spread the word of truth and committment of soul. From energetic anthems like "Party at Ground Zero" to the emotionally charged remake of "Freddie's Dead," Fishbone combines funk, reggae and ska with a touch of metal to make fans of even the most skeptical of music listeners. Like Fishbone, many other Los Angeles club bands are busy experimenting with the combining of music styles from around the world. The Bonedaddys are leading the way for "world beat" music in Houston with their rousing performances at Fitzgerald's nightclub. They combine African rhythms with Carribean influenced British ska to produce such party favorites as "She's the Lion" and "Zouk Attack." While the "brotherhood of the bone" is serious by its cultural nature, the Bonedaddys' performances are pure fun. Even some Houston bands are moving forward into a new world of music. Most notably, Sprawl's performances at UH, including the World Party and the Spring Arts and Music Festival have placed them among the favorites of UH students. Sprawl's funk, reggae and psychedelia makes for a wild party where ever they play. ► Mark Lacy Enter ANew World of Music Worldbeat ■ 31
