You couldn't hang with Oneida and their crowd unless you knew Nadia backwards and forwards

Never sure which Oneida thread is "the" Oneida thread, but full recent set put up by NYCTaper:

Like this minus the first song "Cedars", which just doesn't work for me for some reason. They cover This Heat, which is probably not a good idea for most bands but their take on "S.P.Q.R." is pretty sweet.

ooh thanks for this. I'm still looking for a way into this band. I have The Wedding, Secret Wars, Anthem Of The Moon, and the Nice EP. What am I obviously missing?

sleeve, Thursday, 5 March 2015 23:15 (three years ago) Permalink

honestly i feel like these live recordings are their best work!

tylerw, Thursday, 5 March 2015 23:26 (three years ago) Permalink

Rated O and Each One Teach One are my favorites.

Tomás Piñon (Ryan), Thursday, 5 March 2015 23:27 (three years ago) Permalink

Each One Teach One is great, but I like Anthem of the Moon and Secret Wars a lot too (and Rated O). They really are best as a live experience though.

grandavis, Friday, 6 March 2015 01:18 (three years ago) Permalink

Yeah Each One and Rated O pretty much spell it out.

^ agree w this. honestly think the wedding and secret wars see them trying to be something other than what they naturally are (traditional rock band, rather than a god-level psychedelic groove machine), to generally disappointing effect. they have moments, those more song-driven albums, but nothing to stand with their best work. agree that the live show is the only way to truly know the O.

I missed the boat on them for a long time too, and found a way in through first the song "Run Through My Hair", then that 10th-anniversary comp they gave away. After that I was hooked.

new EP out on Rocket Recordings

Want. But $20 shipping...

dronestreet, Friday, 4 December 2015 14:57 (two years ago) Permalink

So want. The $45 all-in price tag to Canada is effin rough, tho.

hardcore dilettante, Friday, 4 December 2015 23:38 (two years ago) Permalink

Bingo. Would gladly buy @ a merch table, though. Crosses fingers.

BlackIronPrison, Friday, 4 December 2015 23:54 (two years ago) Permalink

Accidentally ordered a couple copies anyhow. I guess at this point if kid millions was selling his owl figurines at sotheby's I'd be like "what the fuck anyhow, who needs to eat, I'll just put Antibiotics on loop and stare at these hypnotic owls til I starve to death."

To our friends and fans:
Oneida drummer Kid Millions is in the hospital in Los Angeles following a serious car crash. He is expected to make a full recovery but will be unable to play for some time. (1/3)

yikes, glad that it's not much worse ... one of the very best drummers out there ... there's a tune on the new one that features some unbelievable playing.

tylerw, Friday, 2 March 2018 16:18 (eight months ago) Permalink

in better news, just got wind of this:

CHARNEL GROUND is a meeting of Chris Brokaw (Come/Codeine/The New Year etc). on electric guitar, James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump) on bass, and Kid Millions (Oneida/Man Forever/etc) on drums, dedicated to exploring the outer and inner regions of instrumental rock music. 'Charnel Ground' was recorded in Brooklyn NY in 2016, and informed and dedicated to pivotal transitions.

the one time i saw oneida live, kid millions was sick, and they had two replacement drummers, because they said that's how many drummers they needed to replace him

na (NA), Friday, 2 March 2018 16:38 (eight months ago) Permalink

Damn, hope he has a speedy recovery. :(

Had dinner with him once when a friend was involved in an early Man Forever piece (the one with the 1/2 hour long single-stroke roll, which was great), just a super nice and genuine dude.

One of the best drummers around, obviously. Feeling for the guy and wishing him a full recovery.
