Oneida -- You'e having a laugh

No c/d thread yet? Would be very interested to know what my fellow ILMers think of Oneida. I can't claim to have heard everything they've done, but I love Doin Business In Japan, Enemy Hogs, and find the new album ummm, interesting. What's the word? They seem to be one of those bands who are never what I WANT them to be. Which is, well, I'm not sure exactly. Maybe more of an expansive soundscape kind of thing than a bunch of acid-rock chuggers. More often than not, they seem to fall somewhere inbetween. Still Funsome.

They were great when they played here some time ago. Weird but good mix of more straightforward psych-ish indie rock songs with nice singing and guitar solos and the percussively-hammer-away-at-a-couple-chords pieces. I scanned an older album in a store and didn't like it very much.

i only have each one, teach one but it's a beautiful item. great psych and a beautiful package (on vinyl).

I don't really love the albums I've heard, but live they are fantastic. They bummed out some ancient hippies who were there for the "psychedelic" music by playing one chord at an extremely high volume for 6 or 7 minutes. It was great.

love them. my favorites are probably enemy hogs, each one teach one, and the liars split 10". they're going over to the u.k. soon, so all y'all over there should show up and buy them drinks. there's not a nicer, funnier bunch of acidpsychfreakout purveyors to share bourbon with than these fellows.

lone voice of dissent:

they are a (take your pick) safe/tame/mild version of the providence/brooklyn noise-rock axis. they take less chances = have more appeal (they play slower, embrace just a touch more melody)... give me parts and labor over oneida.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 26 March 2003 17:36 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

When I saw them, Kid Millions was sick, and they had two drummers to replace him. It takes 2 men, playing at the same time, to take his place.
Oh yeah, and they were really nice, especially the bass player guy.

I don't get the hype. They kinda sound another college radio sheened stoner rock band... not bad but *shrug*.

donut bitch (donut), Wednesday, 26 March 2003 18:28 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I didn't start to love Oneida till I saw them play out regularly. Since then they've become one of my favorite bands in town. They regularly shut down anyone they play with.

To say nothing of the money we spent on geting "EOTO" just so. I guess cursory examination reveals nothing special but go deep with them. They're not the kind of band whose appeal is evident after one or two listens.

http://www.enemyhogs.com for the tour reports. they are good readin.

edde, Wednesday, 26 March 2003 19:08 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i've got to take issue with the idea that oneida are lame ducks in the ny/ri noise stakes. there are influences in common, though i think that they're trying to do something different than most of the bands of that ilk. they wind up with a different sound, but it's intentional and not a watered-down imitation.
as far as their live show goes the off-nights tend to be truly echh, but when they're on it they're ON IT. nothing slow, nothing safe - they are some of the most aggressive players i've seen, to the point of injuring themselves and ruining equipment.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 26 March 2003 20:38 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I think where they're lacking is interesting songs, though if the Liars split is any indication, they may be improving. But yeah, they are great performers and well worth seeing if they're playing yr town.

Nick A. (Nick A.), Wednesday, 26 March 2003 21:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Who are these bands from Brooklyn that are better than Oneida and play in their style? I want to hear them and form my own opinions.

Famous Athlete, Thursday, 27 March 2003 00:21 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

hey bilbo bagginsess: when i saw oneida in pdx, one of the main problems was the crap sound, the bass buried, etc.

as for parts and labor -- they definitely have something going on, though going somewhere different than Oneida. parts and labor definitely have potential, though i dont think all their pieces are together yet. the primary difference is see between oneida and parts and labor, though, is the garage thing, the striata of mudhoney etc that free floats in what Oneida is doing.

I love "Antibiotics", maybe despite the (v brief and mixed pretty low anyway) singing.

sundar subramanian (sundar), Monday, 25 August 2003 21:57 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

After reading about Oneida around here and a few other places, I picked up "Enemy Hogs" back in May and found it to be a pretty good listen.

I think some of their tunes sound not unlike spastik early Sebadoh (esp. some of Gaffneys strange tunes), with a better production. Mind you, I doubt this is a comparison that they would want to have levied upon them.

I'm heading to Bloomington on a CD binge/purge in a few days and probably will search out another Oneida album.

while on the subject of people enjoying themselves at shows...anyone from the Cle area remember, what was his name, Bleeding Ears John? Running circles upstairs at the Stereolab concert at Fairchild in Oberlin, or throwing pork rhinds everywhere at a Cul de Sac show at Speak In Tounges, I thought he was just some asshole who came to shows to annoy people, then me being told "oh, he's a real music lover, he just get's drunk and excited."

nope, but both those shows postdate my Oberlin/CLE days, I think. He sounds awesome, though. Not that there's ever seemed to be a shortage of kickass rockin-out maniacs in Cleveland.

Newsonic is a pretty odd space. I think it's a Wesleyan thing. Don't know the people, but they used to have lots of art-music type events. But also heavy on the Shy Child/El Guapo axis. I remember low ceilings and carpeting and lots of Jews outside. Lots of Jews inside as well, but considerably less observant.

Mink Lungs, Dynasty and someone else, I can't remember. They're usually pretty good parties, that is people seem to hang out and have a good time. It's hard for me to judge, since I never have a good time. If Crazy Rhythms can get a dance party started, we'll go all night. If not, we won't.

Two of my favorite things in 2004 were Secret Wars and the EP. Praise thee Oneida. A new record (The Wedding) is supposedly coming later in the year. And from the website: "We’re spending December recording all the string sections, and then it should be just about done." String sections? Is that a joke or are these tears of joy justified?

The Nice./Splittin Peaches EP is essential for "Hakuna Matata" (why oh why was this not released on vinyl???!??). It's a real treat, one of the best & most idiosyncratic things they've done yet.

mcd (mcd), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 16:11 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i think the whole EP is awesome, mcd. each of the songs seems to extend in a different direction, and each one seems totally fruitful. definitely my favorite current band, which i seem to say around here all the time. my friend and i were talking yesterday about how we both hope The Wedding really delivers, and is as good as it seems like it could be. brilliant fucking band, totally good dudes, and seemingly getting better everyday.

peter smith (plsmith), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 16:32 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

listening to the EP now. those stick clicks and guitar tone on "summerland" are fucking great.

peter smith (plsmith), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 16:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I agree with you. They are so likable and keep getting better and better. Everytime you think you've got them pegged they do a "Sheets of Easter" or a "Last Act, Every Time" or a "Hakuna Matata" to let you know they're paying attention, and better not sleep.

Really, though, it's too bad that the EP didn't get the Version City treatment, I obsess over the beauty of the Each One LP.

mcd (mcd), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 17:06 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"String sections? Is that a joke or are these tears of joy justified?"

It's true, actually -- the record won't be released till the beginning of May, I think, but all the strings have been recorded. The record will be finished by the end of this weekend. I hope it works out, too. You guys are very nice.

I wish the EP was on vinyl, too -- but it was not in the plans for Ace Fu, the label that put it out. The Wedding will definitely be on (gatefold) vinyl.

I've liked the odd Oneida song but I really didn't get Secret Wars at all. No real killer tracks, just a bunch of half-baked bong-rock gestures. They sound like Das Damen without the pretty tunes.

say wha?
secret wars was prolly one THE best things of last year, IMHO.
i yearn for a live album as each time i see em, they just let loose and roar.
jane said that the 'Speedo' stuff was out of fuckin control and it's currently sittin on a shelf, along with a ton of other stuff they've done yet just don't have the time/inclination to release. that makes me sad;(
i have yet to grab that EP...
i wonder how mr. bonello's (rickety records) last recording venture went. he had many a camera, and the sound was pretty good, too! outdoor show oneida is as good as indoor, though i worried of rain, so my cam was a bit far off. my battin record for gettin em goes 2 great, 1 lesser.

COME BACK ONEIDA! PITTSBURGH NEEDS YOU!!
(and luvs ya!)

What's the 'Speedo' stuff you speak of?

mcd (mcd), Thursday, 6 January 2005 19:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i think they may've mentioned it previously, and i maybe stating the name of the film incorrectly, BUT, the Oneidians did a full score for an indie film, and apparently the score was 'too much' for the flick itself, ie-too crazy. which really makes me wanna hear because the film is about demolition derby, which would seem to go with Oneida.

well, to me, maybe.
jane said they were sorta pissed about it, but the d00d who made said flick was really cool fella, so they just chalked it up to 'Oneida luck' and to the shelf to went. to await usage at some later date. i think on the site they make mention of using it for some zombie flick they may or may not do...
take it with a grain, i s'pose.

I am totally digging this band! I bought the Nice/Splittin Eaches EP a while back and it was er, "nice" enough but "Each One Teach One" is absolutely incredible! What else should I look out for? I have "Secret Wars" on my HD but haven't taken the time to listen to it yet.
I like the way that Each One.. is a double album even if it could fit on one CD. The first side is just too BIG to be jammed in on the back of the second side.

Yeah Dog Latin, that is the real shit. Each One was originally vinyl only so that's probably why it is two discs (to reflect the double LP version). The Nice./Splittin Peaches EP is a weird one for an introduction but I love it. The best/my favorite album is Each One followed by Secret Wars. The other albums all have their moments (see "Double Lock Your Mind") but as for complete pieces EO and SW are hard to top.

CD80X2: a specialized introduction to rock (1 matching message)


so my friend peter (wow, same name, blah blah) works with me at a record store. he loves the velvet underground, crass, dub reggae, and 20th century composition. last week, after i offhandedly suggested an album (nico's the end) to him, he told me i needed to "school him in rock". so, considering his musical tastes, and my own favorites, i made him a 2-CD80 mix, with the first disc being shorter, poppier songs, and the second disc being longer, more experimental rock. how did i do?

1. prince - let's go crazy
2. fleetwood mac - the ledge
3. the homosexuals - vociferous slam
4. the fall - how i wrote "elastic man"
5. sly & the family stone - family affair
6. pavement - elevate me later
7. the sonics - the witch
8. guided by voices - watch me jumpstart
9. neutral milk hotel - in the aeroplane over the sea

11. the rolling stones - ventilator blues
12. blue cheer - summertime blues
13. os mutantes - ave lucifer
14. fairport convention - reynardine
15. bob dylan - as i went out one morning
16. the kinks - the village green preservation society
17. t. rex - metal guru

They've cut records with 2 minute organ driven songs, 20 minutie 1 chord droneathons, cock-rock jams, baroque orchestral pop...I think they've quietly been amassing one of the more eclectic and interesting catalos of recent bands.

i gotta say, the wedding never clicked with me. this is after EOTO and secret wars and all the surrounding EP's and splits and comp tracks were some of my favorite stuff of all time. its not that i think the wedding's direction isnt fruitful, but it feels tentative in places.

pssst - badass revolutionary art! (plsmith), Wednesday, 22 February 2006 16:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I can't believe Zu is on that comp! So cool. I just started listening to Zu and they keep coming up seemingly everywhere. The whole Battiato comp looks good; I need to get that. Though I think I've only heard one or two actual Battiato tunes evah. xp

The Wedding wasn't my favorite either. I truly loved Secret Wars and still anticipate everything they do. Has anyone explored the Brah Records catalog?

every album I've heard by them is so different, and great in its own way. a couple months ago I was listening to TO SEED AND FLOWER off Anthem over and over. I really need Enamy Hogs ....

I was invited to DJ that PS1 and really would've loved to but had to go to a wedding. My first DJ experience in NY was actually a tiny house party for that same person who got married, but after that all my DJ gigs were at the loft on N. 3rd where Kayrock lived and had their silkscreening set-up. There were many a halloween or random party where Oneida would play and I DJ'd trying to get some kind of dance party started. A little later I got involved with Mighty Robot and the Twisted Ones and spent many nights DJing there, often shows involving Oneida and their pals. The Twisted Ones stopped when Fitz moved to Berlin and Mighty Robot closed down shortly after, so this 10th anniversary show at PS1 with Fitz visiting and DJing seemed like it'd be a really special event and it would've been cool to take part. Still, better yet I was DJing an old friend's wedding and couldn't have asked for a better time.

dmr, you need to hear their side of the "Live at the Clubhouse" split 12" with 25 Suaves, too. I'm glad that there is some record of their PCRZ line up. I miss that guy in Oneida sometimes, he was like the physical incarnation of their sound. I haven't seen them with Double Rainbow, yet.

PCRZ! they played the garage in london in 2000 (?) to about 14 people. it was good times. afterwards i got drunk with the band, in that drunken journo fanboy way. we were all hunkered around a tiny table, which i drunkenly managed to pull over myself, twice (2ce). i don't really drink anymore.

anyways, what i remember most of that evening was the heavy amount of classic rock playing on the minibar jukebox, and that with every searing solo that cranked out of the speakers, papa crazy would rise from the table (without knocking it over) and play vigorous and heartfelt air guitar, mane a-flowing. a dude.

This Album Has Been "Rated O"

What can I tell you? Part Two of the Thank Your Parents trilogy is a triple album. I’ve found this information to be confusing to most people and I think the reason for this is a general fatigue for all things Oneida (coming out of my mouth). Now perhaps you’ll think I’m pushing the envelope by daring to suggest that I’m boring you – and I’ll be the first to agree. I’m cutting edge. I know that I’m putting you to sleep and yet I still prattle on about nothing at all!

It’s like the famous review of the Melvins that I’m making up right now, “It was like falling asleep on the barrel of an anti-aircraft gun.” I say this and YET I love the Melvins. Can you keep up?

First: Rated O is Oneida’s next album. It’s a triple album – 3 CDs or 3 LPs – your choice! It is coming out in July and we will be doing a few shows in the US and Europe to celebrate in July and August (of 2009).

Second: We’ve made some recordings of our two “Practice Space” Shows – they sounds sweet and we’re gonna do something with them so you can hear them. No idea when that will happen.

Third: There is an uptick of activity over at Brah Records so you oughta go check that out as well.

We have also just completed a remix of the Constantines’ song “Trans Canada” from their latest joint “Kensington Heights.” I’m not sure where that is and I’m not about to google map it.

I encourage you to contact us with any questions and concerns. . .

okay, so i picked up Rated O the other day. holy shit this is great! by far by far BY FAR the best thing i've ever heard oneida do, like Each One Teach One made more and better longer louder crazier crazier world without end. on that note kinda funny how the MC who does vocals on the opening epic dub track even namechecks EOTO (each one a teacha waaaan).

surprised by the mixed reviews. i mean, if yr averse to epic length hammering on a single change (or chord!) this obviously isn't the band for you, but if yr at all interested in the space btwn heavy garage rock, noise & space/kraut hypnosis, this is the fucking GODHEAD. space ritual shit right here. three lps, each aesthetically/conceptually distinct, and all fucking fantastic. i even like "the human factor", which seems to be the sticking point/bellwether for folks who don't quite "get it". yeah, he's shrieking hoarsely for like five minutes, but it's kinda funny and the drumming is awesome.

SO glad i made time for this. instant top-of-the-heap album of the year contender, displacing a lot of potential favorites.

Oh, man. Rated O would be my #1 album of the year this year, except it's last year's album. Aw, fuck it, it's still my album of the year.

I want more stuff like it. Lots more. It fills the need I've had for some years for a new NEU! album - that relentless propusliveness, mostly instrumental, "out there" but never spaced-out. It's hitting all the right neurons.

I've got NEU!, Can, Fela, and now this; what else fits the bill? Suggestions, anyone?

lot of recommendations for cave. not saying no, but if you're interested, aim for the hunt like devil/JAMZ album (dbl EP combo, whatever). best thing they've done so far, imo.

recent mother of fire EP has an oneida-ish quality here and there, but gothier, and not quite so rhythmically intense.

I mean, it is, sure. but when I listen, "don't stop playing this riff, I love this riff" often pops into my head. and of course, they never do. not until the song has totally decayed.

really hits that loop sweet spot for me but coming from a way more primitive angle.

Sorry for derailing your thread, Oneida! Thanks for the recos, everyone. Listening to Harmonia as I type; had forgotten they existed. Really good but a little mellow for my mood right now.

I take it Cave are a different band than these guys? :) Got Hunt Like Devil waiting for me; also, Space Mantra and Circle's Sunrise.

Stopped following the Krautrock listening club after the 1-2 punch of Amon Duul II and Walter Wegmuller, neither of which I could stand in the slightest. (did like La Dusseldorf alright, tho.) Maybe I should get back on the bandwagon.

Anyone listening to any Sun Araw? Seems like if you like Amon Duul II's noodliness and a bit of space-rock you'll dig it. It's mostly soloing over slow deep beats and a chaotic backdrop of echoey distorted guitars & keys. Very trancey & psychedelic. The one I listen to most is Heavy Deeds.

Since I instantly and completely derailed this thread from Oneida to all this other stuff, is it possible for a mod to snip the whole conversation into a new thread from that point? Up to now this is the best all-arounder thread for Oneida & I don't want to have fucked it over. Also, anyone looking for a convo around repetitive guitar-rock bands is more than likely to miss it here.

oh hell yes. have mentioned them in a number of threads recently (insisting, for example, that they are "chillwave" just so i can foist them there). heavy deeds is epic, but i think on patrol is my favorite. the longer songs and open spaces make it so easy to get lost in. plus nice beats.

To answer the previous question -- out in a couple of months and I'm giving it an ear now.

They are funny dudes. I deeply cherish my memories of seeing "Sheets of Easter" for the first time. They are a little fuzzy, but Oneida will always be one of my favorite live bands based on those memories alone.

grandavis, Thursday, 29 November 2012 20:29 (six years ago) Permalink

thinking about it some more, they really do some of the best covers. I've seen them do "Levitation" and "Slip inside this House' by the Elevators and absolutely rip them up (in a good way, of course). Saw them do Dream Syndicate's "Halloween" (Bobby played guitar!) and totally rule it. All time favorite cover I've seen them do has to be "Radar Eyes" by the Godz, though. That fucked me up.

Whelp, here is the mention, and from this very thread to boot:

that was 'sheets of easter' off the each one teach one album, discussed above - go find it!
the secret show in london in 2003 that lauren mentions above was a careless talk night, and was amazing. 2 songs, 'sheets of easter' and a cover of husker du's 'new day rising', for about an hour. GOD HEAD.

Have seen "Levitation" and "Slip Inside This House", not sure I have seen them do any other covers, unless they slipped them in and I didn't recognize them. They essentially rip everything up, great musicians all around. I loved the brief period (circa "C'mon Everybody Let's Rock") when Bobby doubled on guitar with Papa on multiple songs. I mean, the keyboards are/were a huge part of their sound, but the early feral garage/psych side of theirs was a lot of fun.

No real discussion on Absolute II or List of the Burning Mountains or the new People of the North record... any thoughts?

I have to admit, I'm a real fan of both the meth-kraut Oneida ("$50 Tea", "Double Lock Your Mind" and "Sheets of Easter\Antibiotics") and the offkilter stuff like "Rugaru" and "Run Through My Hair", but everything since the mind-bomb of Rated O has left me a bit cold. I like the 2 Oneida records alright (not so much the People of the North one) but find myself more thinking "I like that they're doing this" rather than "I like this", if that makes any sense.

That makes perfect sense to me, to be honest. I respect the hell out of Oneida, and am happy for them to do whatever makes sense to them right now (as they have covered a lot of ground already), but in some respects I think they are playing stuff now that doesn't flex many of their muscles, or play to past strengths, which certainly may show some cool results down the line but right now comes across as a little dry and airless (or cold as you state), and this is not what Oneida has historically been for me. Really dug the Man Forever thing when I saw it live though, so I imagine that some of this stuff translates better in a room than on record. I haven't seen Oneida live in 7 years or so though, so I am not sure what I would make of their current live sets.

Saw them live once about 4-5 years ago at the old Knitting Factory and remember liking it fine but wishing it were heavier or something. Ran into former ilxor hstencil there but I didn't talk to him after the show so don't know what he thought.

dmr, Thursday, 5 September 2013 18:10 (five years ago) Permalink

I think their recent records are not reflecting how insane the band is as a live unit currently. I've had the please of seeing two of their Ocropolis performances - all-day continuous jams with various musicians sitting in and they are absolutely amazing for the most part. They have apparently recorded all this stuff but haven't figured out how to release it yet. Hopefully it will emerge eventually. The last time I saw them at Asbury Park ATP James McNew from Yo La Tengo sat in on bass the entire time. Before Secret Project Robot re-located they did a weekend of performances which included Rated O in its entirety with guest musicians and a performance of Absolute II at 5 AM just when the sun was coming up - it certainly worked in that context, on record not so much. I think Rated O will remain their magnum opus/statement of purpose and I'm glad its out there but they seem to be mainly a live band currently.

hahaha this is someone from trans am talking about playing with oneida
http://thequietus.com/articles/09708-trans-am-2

Oneida: Oneida played before us one night and they wouldn't fucking shut up. They started doing the same repetitive chords and monotonic, single-syllable chant for maybe 5-10 minutes. Sort of like "Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die! Die!" Although it could have been some other word. Paralyzing.

funch dressing (La Lechera), Thursday, 22 May 2014 17:19 (four years ago) Permalink

Doubly so as one of them (Phil Manley I think) joined Oneida as "Double Rainbow" or something for a while. Probably played "Sheets of Easter" at some point and learned to love the chord.

grandavis, Thursday, 22 May 2014 17:48 (four years ago) Permalink

I've probably mentioned this above somewhere, but we put on an Oneida show about ten years ago in London where they played an hour long set of just two numbers, Sheets Of Easter and Husker Du's New Day Rising.

Missed that tour, unfortunately. I saw them in Charlottesville with bass/guitar/keyboard drones, and it was great. Nathan Bowles was the drum partner (on this tour both drummes, i.e. Kid and Nathan, played single-stroke rolls the ENTIRE set, about 40 minutes straight without pausing). Mike Gangloff (Nathan and Mike both play in Pelt amongst many other great bands/solo incarnations) played keyboards. It was heavy as hell in a beautiful monolithic repetitive way.

Not really feeling that "Cedars" song so much from the live set. Found the vocals distracting and not interesting enough to warrant the repetition. Some of the music was all right, but have enjoyed the rest of the set a lot more so far.

grandavis, Monday, 21 July 2014 18:05 (four years ago) Permalink

One of my favourite Oneida anecdotes: " I feel like we played somewhere like Chattanooga, where there was almost no one at the bar, and there was a carnival in town. So at the bar were these scrappy old carnies, like scary dudes with one tooth and a wild look in their eyes. Not a ton of people, I’m talking 15 dudes from a carnival (laughs). And maybe two other people, a bartender, three fans, and the band we were touring with. So we went up there and played this song for 15 minutes, and I think it pissed them off but also made them happy. I remember them stomping around the room thinking we were saying “die, die, die,” these crazy old hillbilly carny men going “die, die, die,” doing Monty Python style goose-stepping walks around the room.

Position Position, Monday, 21 July 2014 18:20 (four years ago) Permalink

That is a good anecdote! Can picture the scene very clearly.

Last song in that set, "You Get Brighter", definitely the highlight for me.

Continued from the Disappears thread: I haven't heard the Brah tapes - got 'em on a bunch of wishlists but they're hensteethy. The O have refused to play anywhere within 1000 miles of me (granted, I'm kind of in the sticks) so I haven't had the chance to see them. I see they're finishing a new record, and another one with Rhys Chatham, both of which are promising developments.

If anyone is in a sharing mood, I'd really dig a chance to hear those tapes. I promise not to take any food out of the band's mouths.

oneida-headz - is there any way to get the recent brah tapes other than on cassette?

tylerw, Monday, 12 January 2015 15:59 (three years ago) Permalink

I haven't seen it either, but the impression I got from the trailer is that it's not really about music as music, or rather that music could be substituted with any competitive young person activity in which there's a teacher-student or coach-student relationship. Like it might just as well be drumline drumming, or some kind of competitive dance team thing. But it also didn't seem totally far-fetched to me that there are musicians out there who might treat jazz big band that way. Although that doesn't square AT ALL with my high school and college big band playing experience -- we did go to competitions, but even when we were competing the director was much more interested in making sure we captured the nuances and feeling of the music than in some kind of tempo contest. I don't see any of that as necessarily meaning it isn't a good movie though.

oh man, that saturday bill had chris forsyth on it too...right? and yes - 30 minutes is way too short.

finally got a tape deck -- had a listening session where we went through all 4 brah tapes consecutively. together, it's a pretty massive double album worth of really good material, spanning everything from shorter burners in the vein of preteen weaponry to amorphous imposing improv with the flavor of "a list of the burning mountains", to oscillating, almost-mellow dronescapes. i've yet to digitize anything, but will get around to it if for no other reason than to listen to at work.

lots of stuff to look forward to in 2015, per their site:
+Recording the THIRTEENTH Oneida album (This is Thirteen II—still gotta run that one by the guys).
+Blowin’ the Rhys Chatham/Oneida album for Northern Spy
+Layin’ the fourth People of the North album out on the stoop

till then, here's jam i (roughly) captured from july. pretty sure this is...new?

Since that kind of "greatness" is so anathema to what I consider great in drumming, I just feel like I'm going to have to go in not thinking of it as a music film. Then again music films generally tend to be even more fraught with cliches, impossibilities and fanciful myths than biopics in general.

yeah, i definitely saw all the stuff kid millions criticizes about the film as intentional, that ultimately the whole thing is about the sort of folly some people engage in, people who think you can turn somebody into charlie parker by throwing a cymbal at their head, and how some people have an exceptional kind of magnetism to where they can actually get folks to believe something that self-evidently stupid. that's not really a "jazz" thing per se.
