The Wounded Knees are Jimi Shields (Rollerskate Skinny, Lotus Crown, Martina Topley-Bird), Suzanne Thorpe (Mercury Rev, Forest for the Trees, thenumber46), and Phil Williams (Hopewell, Evil Twins). The pirate-punk trio were united by dissatisfaction.... As their latch-key-child government embezzled its' own conscience and crossed-their-hearts-hoped-to-die lied about everything..... confusion turned to sound.... Like lightning cracking an old oak tree, the anthems of All Rise were born. The Wounded Knees are sometimes joined live onstage by J Mascis. J plays atomic guitar on the track, "Dirty Exploding Sonic Dogfight", (recorded live@Tonic NYC), simply known as "Dirty", on the All Rise EP. All Rise has been released by Specific Recordings on 10" vinyl format. Specific Recordings, based in Troy, New York, is a label committed to releasing music in the format most appropriate to the the artist.
