Bio: Sassy is currently in the studio in the woods of Southern Norway writing and doing pre-production for album number two with co-writer and husband Dicky Downfall. Tricky Dick is a punk legend from Sydney Australia who met and wooed Ms. Kraimspri at a Christmas party in Sydney in the wee hours in 2004. Love and mysic at first site, and a bit of illegal activity in a local graveyard sealed their fate together forever. Dick was a songwriter and guitarist for Sydney underground punk legends Smash 'n' Grab until he decided to follow Ms. Kraimspri's trail of destruction back to Norway. The two have been making sweet music for the second Kraimspri album ever since.
Sassy, Dick and the band went to Kettering, UK in June 2010 to record their next EP with British Producer Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir (2010), Napalm Death, The Exploited, The Wildhearts...). The band toured Southern Norway during the summer before heading to China for a summers-end tour ending with the Golden Beach Festival in sunny Qindao in front of over 400 fans. They are currently planning a tour of Norway as well as the UK in support of the EP release in 2011 and organizing next year's album release and return to China.
