STIFF Licks Closing Party with Sleep and A Gun That Shoots Knives
A Gun that Shoots Knives - Shortly after forming 'a gun that shoots knives' we were visited by ourselves from the future. they said that they were sick of the groupies and private jets and shit and that we should trade places for a while. of course we jumped on the opportunity, and spent five years reigning as the most popular band on earth. people said they were happy that we had 'gone back to our roots' when in actuality, we hadn't even written any songs yet. after the future, we spent some time touring around other dimensions, then back to the future, and then we decided that we wanted to see what it would be like to be unpopular and play little clubs instead of packed stadiums, so we came back to the year 2005 and traded places with ourselves. so far it has been really fun. you should come see our band now, before it costs $500 to do so. love, A Gun That Shoots Knives..

A master tactician. That is SLEEP in a nutshell. Admittedly addicted to writing lyrics by the time he'd reached just the 2ndgrade, this founding member of The Northwest's oldominion crew began forging the unique style that has become his calling card in hip hop at a very young age. As mechanically sound as any other emcee, now or ever, he has proven himself able to syncopate even the most minimal melody with his rhyme schemes and cadences which are complex enough to ensnare even the most uninitiated listener and perhaps even impress the most academic of poets and literary scholars.

Citing such influences as Black Sheep, Cypress Hill, Hieroglyphics and early on, Run DMC, Sleep points out that it's the music of his own family that has driven him most. His father, (a former bass player for blues legend Gatemouth Brown) grew up playing everything from Mariachi to Blues to Rock with his 7 other musical brothers while his Grandfather had already made a name for himself as a multi-instrumentalist, playing Trombone, Sax and Upright Bass. The first emcee in this 3 generations deep family of musicians, it is obvious that music is in his blood.
