Look Daggers
Artist Bio
Look Daggers
Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta) & 2Mex (Visionaries/SonGodSuns) are the Lookdaggers.

Timing has everything to do with the collaboration between 2Mex (Visionaries, Of Mexican Descent) and keyboardist Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents). The initial idea came from “The Brand New Heavies” album “Heavy Rhyme Experience Vol. 1.” The concept was simple: a Hip-Hop album performed by human beings.

As the first sessions began, Ikey and 2Mex enlisted Matt Wingnal and his studio ”Tackyland” in suburban Long Beach, CA, to record the initial tracks (i.e. “Before You Say No,” “Falcon Gentle,” “Beautiful Freak”). Called in for these sessions were old friends: Marshall Goodman (Sublime/Long Beach Dub All-Stars), Sean Otero (Soul Hustlers), Pat Bailey (Breakestra/The Rebirth).

Finishing up the second half of the album, Ikey and 2Mex wanted to go for more rock inspired tracks and hooked up with now present and permanent band members Chris Clawson, Travis Laws, Mendee Ichikawa (Free Moral Agents), and later, Jesse Wilder (Teen Heroes, Forcefeild On) was added to their live band.
Also featured on the album SUFFER IN STYLE:

Pablo Hinojos-Gonzalez (The Mars Volta), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Ray Barbee, Ryland Steen (Reel Big Fish),Stephan Hodges, Jonathon Hischke, Daedelus, Bob Forest (Thelonious Monster), Existereo (Shapeshifters)
