THROWBACK: Sublime – “April 29th 1992″

Bud_Gaugh,_Eric_Wilson,_and_Brad_Nowell_of_Sublime_(1996)

Sublime was an American ska punk and alternative rock band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band’s line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell’s dalmatian was the mascot of the band. Michael ‘Miguel’ Happoldt and Marshall Goodman “Ras MG” contributed to and co-wrote several Sublime songs. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. In 1997, posthumous songs such as “Santeria”, “Wrong Way”, “Doin’ Time”, and “April 29, 1992 (Miami)” were released to U.S. radio. (via Wikipedia)

There is so much I could write about Sublime, but I like to keep these throwbacks short and sweet. Sublime was part of my teenage soundtrack. Having stumbled upon them from the white girls I went to highschool with – my scholarship proved to be way more influential through the music and art I was exposed to from my peers.

Sublime’s sound is such a perfect mix of ska, reggae and alternative rock. They’re even influencing people like Bruno Mars, who low-key borrowed their “Santeria” harmony for his hook in Travis McCoy’s song “Billionaire”. Check it below and let me know I’m not tripping.

Also, I think M.I.A. was inspired from a little line in their song “April 29th, 1992″ for her song “XR2″ where she says “where were you in 92″.

The stunning Hutton, who was born Mary Laurence Hutton, started her career New York City after graduating from Tulane University. Her trademarked gap-toothed smile made her standout from other models. In 1973, she signed a deal with Revlon which turned into a 10 year partnership. The former Playboy Bunny went on to work with Ford Modeling Agency, Calvin Klein, and many more.

Though Lauren was passionate about her modeling and acting, she found motorcycling to be one of her greatest joys.
