Wockenfuss: beats, rhymes
Talik: bass, guitar, keys, other stuff
Foots: vocals

Sticks Downey was born of the results of my tinkering with Garageband and my roommate's Roland SP-303 sampler. CAC was at a standstill, and at some point I became reinvigorated with the prospect of stacking some tracks together and rapping over the results.

When Biff made his move to AZ, it sealed the deal. I bought myself an SP-404, rigged up a ramshackle recording setup, and I was off.

I spent the next year and a half cutting and pasting, writing and recording, working and reworking. I made the tracks, Talik played bass, and Foots had the unenviable job of singing along with me.

We finished recording our full-length in the summer of '08, and after some unexpectedly lengthy post-production sessions, it was finally released. It was called When the Belt Changes Hands, and it marked the first official Sly Records release in many a moon.

Sticks Downey split in 2013, but I keep doing similar stuff under my own name.
