Sublime/Couple of questions

Question
What was the last song that sublime recorded together?
Are there any tracks that were never finished? I have this question because of the long instrumental garden grove has at the end.
Thanks

Answer
Unfortunately, I don't know the order of tracks that were recorded in studio, but I can say that the last song recorded was at the 5/24/1996 show at Petaluma in northern California. That show is called "Play Nice in the Pit" based on what was on a sign hanging above the moshpit at the stage. It was recorded the night before he OD'd. The last track was "Hope" by the Descendents (from Milo Goes to College CD).

There are tons of tracks that Sublime never finished since they were so prolific. If you haven't checked out Everything Under the Sun, please do. There are many songs that were partially cut that the crew tried to finish up in the studio many years after Brad's passing. "Officer Move", "Angelo", "Sweet Little Rosie", "89 Vision", etc. It goes without saying that there are dozens of bootlegs out there with studio tracks that never were released because they were still rough (or didn't make the cut). Check out Pure Anus, Sinsimilla 86-96, etc. Second Hand Smoke was all based on unfinished songs, after all.

Sorry for the delay. I have been slammed at work, going to school at night, and the new little lady in my life takes a bit of my time. She's 7 months and is getting introduced to Sublime and Jelly of the Month Club.

Expertise

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.

Experience

I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

Education/Credentials
I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
