The original author of the SB bio listed the names of the four people who contributed artwork to the original Sleeping Body 7" on Vermin Scum records. Because the members of the band think it is a funny bit of confusion, it remains. Chad Percy died January 10th, 2009 after being in a coma suffered on September 25th, 2008 in a scooter accident.

You can read more here in his obit and here in the journal posted by his family. Maximum RocknRoll wouldn't review their record, because it wasn't "punk". However, there was a Sleeping Body interview in Maximum RocknRoll circa 1992. Releases: a 3-song demo cassette, a 7" entitled "Awaken" on Vermin Scum Records (VS #015) in 1993, the song "Bleeding Heart Shit" on a compilation 7" flexi entitled "4 Bands I Like" and a live performance on WFMU that is a rare cassette recording. There are also two unreleased songs from the "Awaken" sessions that may see the light of day. Here's a review of the record taken from this site: Four songs from a band who can fuck shit up real bad then stop on a dime. Incredible musical unity here that has more off-beat counts and chopped up guitar parts than most bands could ever handle, let alone attempt.

Very impressive and moving hardcore that has all this and an ability to set up a decent groove in-between cutting everything up and throwing it in your face. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
