Look Daggers is a collaboration band that combines the musical direction of The Mars Volta keyboardist Ikey Owens with the lyricism of Hip-Hop underground icon 2Mex, blending rock and hip hop in a way that is unique to these two musicians. Ikey Owens: The longest tenured member of The Mars Volta, (named by Rolling Stones as the ''Best Progressive Rock Band'' in 2008), Ikey has continually recorded and performed with the band since their inception. He was also a member of notable bands De Facto and the Long Beach Dub All-Stars. 2Mex: Emerging from the historic Good Life Cafe in Los Angeles in the early '90s, 2Mex has since released numerous albums as a solo artist and as a member of the Visionaries. 2Mex is a favorite among hip-hop heads, punk-rockers and music fans alike. Special Guests: Pablo Hinojos-Gonzalez (The Mars Volta), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Marshall Goodman (Sublime/Long Beach Dub All-Stars), Pat Bailey (The Breakestra), Ray Barbee, Ryland Steen (Reel Big Fish), Stephan Hodges, Bob Forest (Thelonious Monster), Existereo (Shapeshifters), Chris Clawson, Travis Laws, and Mendee Ichikawa (Free Moral Agents). Both the CD and vinyl (2xLP) come with the ''Alive For Now In Long Beach'' DVD: an in-depth look at the pieces that make up the Look Daggers. Experience a full live show, exclusive interviews with key players from the album, rehearsal footage, music videos and much more.

Been a huge fan of Visionaries for a long time but this not the Visionaries. 2Mex takes a whole new approach (better than his solo albums) and kills this entire album lyrically. Not a Mars Volta fan, but this is not the Mars Volta. Ikey Owens is a mastermind behind the production - together they create one of the illest albums of 2008, hands down. Save your money on wack shit, and get this REAL album.
