In their latest video, “The Prophet,” reggae band Slightly Stoopid shares a clip of a home recording with the late Bradley Nowell of Sublime jamming the song with them. The clip is just one glimpse into a story that began almost twenty years ago with Stoopid singers and songwriters Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald hitting it off with Nowell, and getting signed to his label Skunk Records.
“When Miles first wrote that song, Brad loved it…” Drummer Ryan “RyMo” Moran shared, “He actually covered it for a little while and we played it live a little bit, but not as a whole band – usually Miles would play it solo at the end of the night.”
It’s a unique back-story, one that no doubt intertwines into everything, but it’s only one part of a story that’s still being written. I had the opportunity to sit down with RyMo to talk a little about what he’s learned over the last thirteen years with Slightly Stoopid, the band’s new video and album. I hope you enjoy!
