Hard to believe it’s been over 14 years since Bradley Nowell passed away, shortly before the release of Sublime's self-titled major label debut. If only he had been alive to witness the commercial success his band would later achieve, one that still earns steady radio play, while their catalog has been milked dry with three studio albums, one live album, five compilation albums, three EPs and one box set. Nowell would also been keen to know that his band would become so popular that it would spawn the popular Sublime cover band Badfish.
If you you never had the chance to check out 90’s ska-rock heroes Sublime, cover band Badfish is the next best thing. If you wanted to hear any Sublime song, Badfish played it convincingly well, as even a version of “Daterape” got the girls dancing on stage.
