Slightly Stoopid Sticks to the Road

“We butt heads a little bit but at the end of the day, we’re all friends. We’re like brothers,” says Ryan ‘RyMo’ Moran, drummer for the rock reggae group Slightly Stoopid. A fraternal bond seems not only convenient but also necessary for a band that two decades later, continues to produce new music and still spends most of its time on the road. “We’ve stayed relevant because we’ve stayed busy,” says Moran.

Dumpstaphunk Plays Dirty

[Updated] The title track on Dumpstaphunk's new Dirty Word tells you all you need to know about the band. It's little more than a riff, but that riff's a monster, one that the band plays as an instrumental for more than half the song's running time. It doesn't wear out because the music around it is in constant motion - a bass pick-up here, a few bars of a guitar lick there, a keyboard counterpoint farther along.
