Slightly Stoopid, the Ocean Beach, California based group led by co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty finally make it back to the UK and hit Boomtown for the very first time.
Playing "a fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk." As a band, they have released twelve albums (four live), with their eighth studio album entitled Meanwhile...Back at the Lab on June 29, 2015. The band was originally signed by Bradley Nowell from the band Sublime to his label Skunk Records while still in high school and then started their own label Stoopid Records around 1999.
“At that time, we were in transition as far as what we were doing with our records, and we thought it would be good to have our own independent label—like Sublime showed us back in the day with Skunk Records.
"For us, it was a big turning point as far as having complete creative control over everything we do. That's something big for this band—we want to make the music for ourselves and for our fans. We don't really make music for someone in an office that tells us something needs to be there. We've always had a very organic, do-it-yourself attitude. I think it's paid off in dividends." Nearly two decades into their artistry, Slightly Stoopid continues to progress into new musical territory, defining their signature sound while creating a contagious feel-good vibe that has its own lifestyle and subculture… and it’s been done entirely on their own terms.
