Sublime played its first gig on the Fourth of July, 1988 in a small club in Long Beach, California, reportedly starting the "Peninsula Riot" in Harbor Peninsula which led to seven arrests.
Sublime consists of Bradley, Eric, and Bud. Field Marshall sat in on drums when needed, and dropped samples on songs. Miguel was the sonic manipulator. Opie did the art.
Sublime utilized a genre-blending mash-up style which incorporated elements of dub, reggae, ska, punk rock, improvised dancehall, hip hop, psychedelic rock and acoustic rock, which they developed through their live shows.
Bradley passed away and we all miss him. What else need be said!
