An Underground Classic

"After forming in 1978, this was Fishbone's first release. Forget about the short ska phase the music scene went through back in 98-99 - Fishbone was doing it WAY before with this album. And it's not just ska; it's fun, raw, energetic, and humorous rock. "Party At Ground Zero" has historically prooved the success of this album. You've probably heard it on the radio or in the background of some television show or movie. The same can be said of Fishbone - they've lingered just under the nose of mainstream rock and roll (which is probably better for the longevity of the band). People new to Fishbone will probably like this album or "Truth and Soul" best. But this is one party album that belongs in everyone's upbeat collection."

"Truly Bone in the USA, I go back to 1986 with this CD to my days as a DJ for my college radio station. I took it to the next level seeing Fishbone live three times from Raleigh, NC (Hot 'lanta) to St. Louis, MO (Mississippi Nights). I was taken by the fact that they were something I had longed for all my life, a black band that was not afraid to rock.....Blending rock, reagge/ska and funk with irreverent socio-political undertones this band can best be described as an American equivalent of Madness. Going one step further and giving them their full credit every band which has followed (Living Color, Mighty Bosstones, No Doubt and Red Hot Chili Peppers) all trace their roots back to this EP."
Contains two of the spunkiest, hippest tunes of the 1980s.

"Fishbone has gone through many changes over the past few years, and their sound has become more hard-core as the band has aged. This EP is their first major release, and it catches the band at an energetic and creative high. While not as polished or well-rounded an effort as the later "Truth and Soul," this album offers fun, soulful, high flying dance music. It's a satisfying blend of ska, funk, rap, and good ol' creativity.The album is a must have for "Lyin' Ass Bitch" and "Party at Ground Zero" -- two of the spukiest, hippest tunes of the 1980s"
