Fishbone still at top of alternative heap (Fri. 12/21 at GAMH with Diego’s Umbrella & The Crooked Stuff)

Throughout Fishbone’s 30-year career, the ska-punk band from South Central Los Angeles has tirelessly produced genre-busting albums and headlined frantic college festivals, only to watch its support acts — such as No Doubt, Sublime and Jane’s Addiction — speed by to stardom.

 Lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher — who this year reunited with original Fishbone members drummer Philip “Fish” Fisher, guitarist John Bigham and trombone player Chris Dowd — continue to press on unabated and rocking ferociously.

“I feel like I’m in a time machine and time is standing still,” Moore says. “We see people standing in the front row of our shows, they go off, get married, come back with their kids — all this stuff. I think, wow, that’s how long we’ve been around?”

 The band performs Friday, Dec. 21 at the Great American Music Hall. - SF Chronicle
