Angelo Moore aka Dr. Madd Vibe Performance Artist – Vocalist – Musician – Composer – Poet – Satirist
Dr. Madd Vibe’s work represents a link between poetry, performance art and music. Angelo Moore (aka Dr. Madd Vibe) began his career in the early 1980s as lead singer, saxophonist, and creative force behind the band Fishbone. Fishbone’s ability to blend social commentary and humor with a blazing fusion of rock, punk, funk, ska, reggae, gospel and R&B led to their recognition as one of the most original and notable acts in American music. After over 25 years in the biz, Moore continues his role as frontman of Fishbone, who have entered into a 3rd generation line-up. The band has released 8 full-length albums including “Fishbone” (1985), “Truth and Soul” (1988), “The Reality of My Surroundings” (1991), “Give a Monkey a Brain and He’ll Think He’s the Center of the Universe” (1993), “Chim Chim’s Badass Revenge” (1996), “The Psychotic Friends Nuttwerx” (2000), “Friendliest Psychosis of All” (2002), and “Still Stuck in Your Throat” (2007). Mr. Moore has additionally collaborated with the likes of Little Richard, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, Rick James, Living Colour, Branford Marsalis, Burnt Sugar, the Wayans brothers, Laurence Fishburne, and Spike Lee. A versatile artist, Dr. Madd Vibe’s visceral solo performances range from spoken word and movement to playing the Theremin and various saxophones as well as reciting poetry accompanied by the Dr. Madd Vibe Aukestra. Stemming from his experiences growing up as a “fly in the buttermilk” in the predominantly white suburbs of Los Angeles, Angelo Moore addresses the human condition in a world gone mad in works such as “Real Racism,” “Social Corrosion,” “Family Affairs,” and “Personal Satisfactions and Suffocations.” Through the power of delivery and content, Dr. Madd Vibe brings a mystical and cathartic dimension to his performances in the tradition of innovators such as George Clinton, Sun Ra and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Mr. Moore has taken his spoken word and sound power to the stage throughout the world. Between 1997 and 2005 he released “Comprehensive Linkology,” a book of poetry and CD; a video recording called “The Yin Yang Thang;” the “Jah Jah on the Telephone” and “Nate Poe Crasto” comic books (soundtrack included) as well as the album “Medicine Cabinet.” Angelo has appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Roseanne Show, The Magic Johnson Show and was featured in the films “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka” (1988), “Phoenix Point” (2003), “Electric Purgatory” (2003), “The Still Life” (2005) and “Idlewild” (2006). As a poet, Mr. Moore has performed at venues including Lincoln Center, Yale University, and Brooklyn Academy of Music. He was also a featured speaker in the Spitfire Tour and hosted “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Most recently, Mr. Moore has published “Dr. Madd Vibe’s Ivy League Invasion,” a book of poetry created in conjunction with his artistic residency at Yale University (2007), and released a third solo album, “MaddVibe en Dub” (2010).
