what's this Skipping Stones thing? We'll tell you about the players...
William Knapp is a Connecticut-based drummer who became an early fixture
in the elemental, hardcore music scene, including the bands CIA, Reflex
From Pain, 76% Uncertain, Onion, Shelter and Explodee (with Greg Vegas
from Monsterland). He brings extensive production experience to the label,
co-producing the first Shelter record "Perfection of Desire" and contributing
to the "legendary" Anthrax club and art space founded by brothers Brian
and Shawn Sheriden. The all-ages Anthrax was the hub of the undergound
/ hardcore / punk rock music scene in CT throughout the 80s. Often, Knapp
would be behind the mixing board, doing live sound for bands such as Fugazi,
Dag Nasty, Sonic Youth, The Fall, Circle Jerks, Henry Rollins, The Descendents
and others from 1984 - 1989. Knapp is currently making a living as Creative
Director of an interactive media / advertising company.
Knapp brings his passion for music into this new project. "[It] touches
the soul, it's the magic a kid sees watching stones skip across the water."
