About the Artist
Graffiti Death Threat buzzes with excitement. Part indie rock, part indie rap, this 3 piece outfit (guitar, turntables, and emcee) is irreverent art punk for a generation of fans that listens to more than one genre of music. In an age where rock / rap hybrids conjure up images of teenage hero worship spilling out derivative power chords over sampled break beats, Graffiti Death Threat is here to reshape your conceptions. Steeped in the likes of Link Wray and Public Enemy; Tom Waits and Outkast; The Roots and the Queens of the Stone Age, Graffiti Death Threat is a virtual gumbo of musical styles and components, dynamic and engaging, hell-bent on destroying industry standards and subverting pop sensibilities.
In compositions where T-Rocks drum patterns transform into melodic leads and Little Warrens vibrant rifts shift from mariachi to surf rock, Graffiti Death Threat utilizes the full potential of their instruments to create noisy bliss, simultaneously inventive and familiar. When you add Skoolz to the mix, spitting tongue-in-cheek rhymes with razor tongued delivery, Graffiti Death Threat leads listeners through a maze of myths and mantras, humor and plot twists.
Graffiti Death Threats self titled debut CD/LP rests somewhere between an uncompromising work of art and some adolescents playful meanderings. Punk rock ethics with spit polish. Hip Hop without borders. If your local record store is having trouble placing Graffiti Death Threat in the appropriate "category by genre", might we suggest the section titled "Staff Picks"?
