Alas, it’s with a heavy heart that Froglix bids adieu to California’s Long Beach Shortbus. We were first introduced to this phenomenal band shortly after we launched by the founder of Long Beach Records, Mudd Lowther. Mudd was kind enough to send a box full of great music from the Shortbus and other great LBR artists to include Falling Idols, Glue Factory, 3rd Alley and others, many of which are still active in the rotation. Before playing their last show in 2007, the Shortbus (comprised of members from Sublime and the Long Beach Dub All-Stars) released (2) discs including a self-titled release in ’02 and Flying Ship of Fantasy in ’04. The latter of which contributed several excellent tracks for our global broadcast. While the now defunct Shortbus won’t be heard via our global broadcast moving forward, be sure to look for them in our Archive Broadcast and mp3 archives page…both are coming soon. We wish the members of Shortbus all the best and (fingers crossed) should they ever choose re-form, we would be honoured to once again include them as part of Froglix Radio.
