Angelo Moore is one of the few musicians that truly defines the city of Los Angeles. Having come up with Fishbone in the uber-creative early 80’s alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, and other rule-breakers of the era, Angelo has come to be known as one of the godfathers of the unbridled blend of punk, funk, ska, and poetry that so many Los Angeles bands and musicians explored.
However, coming from the land of glamour and seeing the tougher sides of the ruthless entertainment business bears a price to pay - and someone born and raised in Los Angeles who enters into its #1 industry ends up in a complicated relationship with the city itself.
In this meditative, powerful song, Angelo explores what it means to him personally to be from Los Angeles — he’s a key part of its culture, and in some ways he has triumphed over it and in other ways he is just a cog in its giant, never-ending machinery. Angelo Moore & the city of Los Angeles, are one and the same in many ways. It’s a long overdue ode to how the city has shaped him, and in turn, he has shaped the minds and thoughts of so many across the world.
Angelo wrote the song with his project the Brand New Step, while on the road, and recorded it with producers and collaborators Jim Greer & Kris Jensen in Berkeley, CA. It features Claude Coleman Jr( Ween) on drums, Hashish Vyas ( thievery corporation) on bass, and guest singer Yunoka Berry. Angelo & crew spent a day filming all around the city, visiting key points and places from his past.
