The Fish which had hits like Take On Me and Sell Out back when Bill Clinton was in office are now hoping to make a big splash with their newest album, Were Not Happy Until Youre Happy, which hits stores on April 5.
One person excited about the CD is the bands newest member, trumpet player John Christianson, who says he was surprised the group has jazz chops to go along with their ska sound.
In addition, he says the bands fans arent stuck in the past.
In his words, I look at the audience and its always young kids, unlike some bands whose fan base gets older as the group matures.
But while the Fish are reeling in young fans, theyre not ignoring their own maturity. The new CD features shout-outs to their favorite records of the past, including the first single, a cover of the Tracy Chapman song, Talkin About A Revolution, and a remake of Morrisseys We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful.
