More Info- The Knife is a brother sister duo from Sweden.  Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson make up the band and run their own label Rabid Records.  The Knife has won many Swedish Grammis, but the two refuse to accept them and even go as far as boycotting the award ceremonies.  They once sent two people in gorilla suits to the ceremonies in boycott, angered that the awards favor male musicians.  They often wear masks of bird's beaks as well.  Karin has a side project named Fever Ray.  And Olof has other works under the names DJ Coolof and Oni Ayhun.
