Slightly Stoopid's dual front men Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald were signed to Skunk Records by Sublime's Bradley Nowell,
while they were still in high school in 1995. Since their self-titled debut this band has improved and changed its sound with
every album they have released. Closer to the Sun, their fifth effort is Slightly Stoopid at its pinnacle of sound, reached by
fusing acoustic rock and blues with reggae, hip-hop, and punk.
