Thee Oh Sees

Psych-punk psychic warrior, ear worm-farmer, and possessor of many stamped passport pages John Dwyer does not let up. His group Oh Sees (aka Thee Oh Sees, OCS, The Oh Sees, etc) have transmogrified to fit many a moment - from hushed druggy folk to groovy demonic pop chants to science fictional krautrock expanse and beyond - to suit his omnivorous whims. It’s common knowledge however, that at their shows, you’re there asking for a beating. 20 years going and the shows keep getting more and more intense, as many a soupy swarm can attest.

Prettiest Eyes

"I first saw them ages ago at the Sattelite and they were cake-takers that night…now, they are stronger and weirder than ever. I couldn’t believe this new batch of tunes and their bananas-energy live show and, their fans are hard-core heads, just a soup of dance and mouths agog brutal, fractured, pogoing beats played by Pachy, also the singer, belching out vocal smoke rings in the laser light above the din they are flat out commands, militaristic in their delivery and yet catchy, like you like em Marcos, an extro-sensual bassist who climbs inside of your mind-clothes while grinding out aggressively greasy throbs and pulls and Paco, the keyboardist who at times plays reeling wailing lines that could be mistaken for a number of other instruments…and the hair on this dude I have a hard time remembering how nice his face is offstage, all you can see is a whip wigging out they are captivating, they are odd, they make strange and interesting choices…futuristic and yet drawn from the same sonic sludge that all mankind derives from they live and breathe early Los Angeles punk vibes while still innovating at every turn there is electricity in this sound they simply rule and what a pleasure to hear the album doesn’t stray far from what makes them just melt it in person recorded perfectly to harness the animal on a nice inanimate slab of plastic you can take home for fans of The Screamers, Suicide, Chrome, and a hint of Birthday Party (band)” - John Dwyer (Oh Sees / Castle Face Records)

"Monstrous bass, relentlessly rigid Liebezeit-style rhythms and vocals torn from another dimension. There’s some CHROME, some Hawkwind, some of the gnarliest moments of Sonic Youth and all of the cosmic noise and pain of space that drove Cordwainer Smith’s fictional astronauts insane." - L.A. RECORD
