The Violent Sleepers...

This band has all the elements to get really big. Fast. It's a bit hard to describe their style of music, as it is all original. It's as unusual and diverse as the three band members who've created the songs "Tightrope", "World Inside", "Crosscontinuity", and many others. Starting out industrial, then veering toward alternative, the band has influences that span an immense number of genre's. Robby X, the lead singer that started the Violent Sleepers says "I wanted to make music. I wanted something dark and erotic that you can dance, trance and trip to." I would say that about sums it up, however, from the haunting lyrics, to the hard-hitting bass-lines, this stuff is NEW. Here is something different.
Robby X, Jon Fret, and Wraith are the foundation of the Violent Sleepers. Joined by an occasional floating guitarist, these are the guys that make it all happen. What's in a name? Who are these guys? Let's start with the violent sleeper himself, Robby X. The band name, Violent Sleepers, came from the odd accidental of him beating the crap out of things, including himself, while sleeping soundly. Hmmmm... he is the eccentric, eclectic, and least talkative band member. Oh, did I mention he's the lead singer? Robby X materializes just in time to spin his bleak writings into something we can all pretty much relate to, and then quickly crawls back into a dark and silent shell.
Jon Fret is a shockingly talented drummer/keyboardist/guitarist/anything-he-feels-like-ist. He is funny, and has amazing stage presence. During "Tightrope" and an eerie, sexually charged remake of "Lullaby", watch Jon play the keys with his left hand, while his right keeps the beats on the drum set. It's impressive to say the least. He also sings back-up vocals, and does a bit of stand-up, when it suits him. When is that you ask? Only Jon knows for sure. Did I mention his favorite bands? He loves Tool, and of coarse, the Bee Gees?
Wraith being last, but most certainly not least, plays bass guitar. The Violent Sleepers wouldn't be who they are or sound like they do without his creative genius. He writes as much of the music as he plays. Wraith creates the driving, mesmerizing bass lines to most all the songs. He can play anything you put in front of him, but it did take him almost a whole week to learn 3 full Primus albums. Les Claypool... wow. He's a bit quiet, but not shy. Give him a reason for conversation, and he's an engaging, charming individual with a quick wit and great sense of humor. Did I mention that he's only 16 yrs. Old?
On May 12th, the Violent Sleepers will be playing a show at Club Enigma in downtown Port Huron. Also playing will be One Day At A Time, The Acrobat, 3DW, and Idopa. I know you've heard all the "don't miss..." the "must see..." and the "be there..." in every ad, all your lives. From Salad Shooters, to Monster Trucks, it's all been pitched. Well, here is a rather jaded, unbiased person telling you all something. I've heard these guys. Every now and then a person is lucky enough to catch a real talent up close and personal. Later, a year or so down the road, you get to say "I saw that band in a bar in (fill in your city)". That's when everyone says "Wow". You can say "Look they signed my T-shirt." Next time you'll be fighting in line at Ticketmaster!
