Slightly Stoopid

Slightly Stoopid

Even nearly 15 years after his death, the legacy of Sublime singer Bradley Nowell permeates the musical ecosystem in a number of surprising ways. While many styles and genres have come and gone over the years, Sublime's pot-fueled white-boy reggae-rock has never really gone out of fashion, with either subtle hints or blatant lifts seen in Jack Johnson, The Dirty Heads, and various other frat-house staples over the past decade and a half. Y'know, there will always be a new high school sophomore looking for some tunes to accompany his inaugural viewing of Up in Smoke. San Diego's Slightly Stoopid aren't just of that same mold; they actually were discovered by Nowell out of high school, and their self-titled debut was released on the late singer's Skunk Records. When one band was ending, another was just beginning, with Slightly Stoopid picking up some of Sublime's slack, albeit on a much more underground basis. Despite never being on a major label, they've steadily built a fan base and played pretty much every major festival. It helps to have friends with common goals. Slightly Stoopid will be joined on their "Cauzin' Vapors: Legalize It 2010" tour later this summer by Cypress "Hits from the Bong" Hill.
