Reel Big Fish donate proceeds from Denver show to Aurora shooting victims and families

Reel Big Fish played a show last Thursday at the Belly-Up in Denver, Colorado where they’ve decided to donate all their proceeds to the victims and families of the Aurora shooting.

The band stated:

Last Thursday night, Reel Big Fish played to an amazing Denver crowd. The night was buzzing with positive energy as the last notes of the horns blared and the audience poured into the dark to head home. Little did we all know; right down the street, a tragedy of unspeakable horror was unfolding, in Aurora. Because of the love that Denver always shows us, we would like to do what we can for the friends and families of the victims. Proceeds from our show at the Belly-up in Aspen, CO last Friday July 20 will go to The Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance. Our booking agency, The Agency Group will also be making a donation. If you wish to donate or learn more about the organization visit www.coloradocrimevictims.org. All our love goes out to the people of Denver in this time of sorrow. Music and dancing is good medicine. Be with friends and boogie!

Random Cover Song: Reel Big Fish – “Story Of My Life” (Social Distortion)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today, we have OC ska veterans Reel Big Fish covering Social Distortion’s hit “Story Of My Life.” The song originally appeared on the 1990 self-titled Social D album and was covered on Reel Big Fish’s 2005 album “We’re Not Happy ’til You’re Not Happy.” Check out the original and the cover here.



Album Review: Reel Big Fish – “Candy Coated Fury”

Oh man, what 15-year old me would do if he saw me giving Reel Big Fish’s new album 2/10 stars. With that in mind, it’s not lightly that I say this is a weak attempt at a comeback for the band, who haven’t released any new material since 2007’s “Monkeys For Nothin’ And Chimps For Free.”

What’s clearest about this album is the lack of growth between it and almost every previous release. The tracks here are virtually indistinguishable from anything else in the band’s discography, with only the (under-utilized) saxophone parts to let the listener know this is actually something new…blandly, mundanely new. Also, the guys seem to have a big thing for “Woah woah” and “na na” gang choruses. I guess that’s one thing to do when you run out of lyrics about your ex-girlfriend.

Maybe I’m being too harsh. I am, as I mentioned before, a long-term fan of The Fish. What turned me around this time was my false hope for some new sounds by the band. With trumpet/guitar/keyboard/vocalist Scott Klopfenstein leaving last year, and the new addition of a third horn player (Goldfinger’s Matt Appleton on tenor sax) I was curious to see if the band would expand a bid stylistically.

Any tongue-in-cheek humor the band once showcased seems to have deteriorated into something much more juvenile and much less entertaining. Overall, everything mixed together to create a boring, albeit polished record. If you are a diehard Reel Big Fish fan who has loved everything they’ve ever released, this album is probably for you and nobody else. “With all due respect” seems to be such a fake insincere term, but considering this band was and still remain icons of the genre, they do deserve that level of dignity and I will continue to keep an open mind to upcoming releases. So, with all due respect to the gentlemen of Reel Big Fish, if putting out the same album a dozen times is your thing, go ahead, but it’s just not mine. 2/10 fishes.
