Slightly Stoopid

Slightly Stoopid is a band based in Ocean Beach, California, 10 miles from downtown San Diego, who describe their music as "a fusion of acoustic rock and blues with reggae, hip-hop, and punk". As a band, they have released seven albums (2 live) with their fifth studio album, entitled "Chronchitis", released on August 7, 2007. The band was originally signed by the late Bradley Nowell from the band Sublime to his label Skunk Records. Back In 1995, while still in high school, Miles and Kyle caught the ear of Sublime vocalist Bradley Nowell, who then signed them to his own Skunk Records label. Staying true to the D.I.Y ethic of punk rock, the band released its first two albums independently on Skunk. With minimal distribution (primarily in Southern California), the Skunk label released the punk-tinged debut Slightly Stoopid (1996), and the heavier-produced reggae leanings of the band's surf inspired Longest Barrel Ride (1998).
