Slightly Stoopid's Miles Doughty on Beach Life, Tour Life, and Taking Control of Their Destiny

Few bands remain as succinctly Californian and categorically challenging as San Diego's Slightly Stoopid. Signed to the late Bradley Nowell's Skunk Records in 1995, they're an act that's been a signed Golden State institution for almost 20 years, carving out their niche by pulling together a variety of genres into a melding that's all their own. Having been road dogs for the entirety of their career, even after two decades, they still wouldn't have it any other way, tribulations and personalities aside.
