Slightly Stoopid are a rock band which formed in Ocean Beach, California, United States in 1995. The band consists of Miles Doughty (vocals, guitar, bass), Kyle McDonald (vocals, bass, guitar), Ryan Moran (drums), Oguer “OG” Ocon (percussion, harp), DeLa (saxophone) and C-Money (keyboards, trumpet). Since their formation they have released seven albums: “Slightly $toopid” (1996), “The Longest Barrel Ride” (1998), “Everything You Need” (2003), “Closer to the Sun” (2005), “Chronchitis” (2007), “Slightly Not Stoned Enough To Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid” (2008) and “Top of the World” (2012).
Slightly Stoopid was formed in 1995 in Ocean Beach, California by childhood friends Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald. Soon after, Sublime frontman Bradley Nowell discovered the duo and asked them to perform a set at the Foot Hill Tavern in Long Beach, California. Nowell immediately signed them to his label, Skunk Records, while the band was still in high school. A pair of releases soon followed—1996’s punk-tinged Slightly $toopid (featuring a guest appearance by Nowell on the song “Prophet” – later covered by Sublime and released on their box set, Everything Under the Sun) and 1998’s surf-inspired The Longest Barrel Ride.
The group self-released 2001’s Acoustic Roots: Live and Direct (a 40-minute acoustic set, captured live at San Diego ‘s Rock 105.3 radio station) – the first for their own label, Stoopid Records, before issuing 2003’s Everything You Need on Surfdog (a musical departure for the band, that sold more than 130,000 copies).
