As Sleep joins the Neurosis 30-year birthday shows in S.F. this week, we begin our own celebration with a focus on Sleep. Leaving a slow, sticky slime trail since crawling out of a Northern California cave in the early 1990s, stoner doom legends Sleep have hoisted our heavy heads up to a higher plane. Host Ian Christe (Bazillion Points Books) traces the ultra-heavy journey from pre-Sleep band Asbestosdeath, to Earache Records upstarts, to major label pariahs, to offshoots Om and High on Fire. Slow your Rrrrrooots!
