Review of Sublime: Sublime

Alain DuPuis picked Sublime’s self-titled third album, for June 2021. This album blew up the band with hits like What I got, Santeria, and Pawn Shop, but a truly sad reality was that just two months before this album was released, lead singer and guitarist Bradley Nowell had passed away from a heroin drug overdose. Sublime roared on to the LA / Orange County punk scene by developing a unique punk sound infused with reggae , ska and a heavy influence of the rap scene of the time. They worked they way up the hard way, by playing small yard parties for small groups and not giving a fuck what the critics and labels said. As this ended up being their largest and last album with this lineup we went back to see if this album stands the test of time and can stand up today.

A few things you will find out in this episode are:

• How Sublime got kicked off the original Vans Warped Tour.

• The belief that all punk bands cannot play instruments or sing is false.

• Dogs are awesome and we all miss Lou Dog.

Enjoy and comment!
