Album Notes
Knecbone consists of 5 men. Jon Martinez- bass/vocals, Bill Gantner-drums/percussions, Joe Fish- guitar, Mike Ramirez-vocals/programing, Tim Martinez-vocals. All of us are born and raised in the south bay of southern California. Before Knecbone, Jon,Bill, and Joe where in a band called State of Lu. Mike was in a hip hop group called Cookos Nest. It was the merging of the two acts and bringing in another vocalist that brought on the birth of Knecbone.
Headlining all over Hollywood, O.C., L.A., etc., Knecbone began packing venues and opening the eyes of other musicians. DJ Shakey Bonez of the KottonMouth Kings makes an appearance on the record and Marshall, formerly of Sublime, would sit in with the boys and Dj sets. The album will open some eyes and move some heads.

This Will Help You Get Through the Rat Race.
Sounds like Cypress Hill focusing on singing and incorporating more rock in their hip hop, after they cleaned out their sinuses. Love to hear more music from this band.
