Memory Lane kindof : OCS
a couple of weekends ago i was going through my records when i found an old favorite that i haven't listened to in a while, the OCS album "3 songs about death and dying". picked up at the record store i worked at a couple of years ago for no other reason that it looked dope. and the first disc that is 3 became an instant favorite, which i later got on vinyl. the song "second date" sticks out especially, being one of the most delicately haunting songs i have ever heard. the OCS are now Thee OHSEES and now carry more of a garage rock throwback thing with two vocals and two guitars. their sound now is very different than what it was. but still good in it's own right.
last week i was looking for some video footage of that particular era of OCS only to find new recordings of a bunch of songs that is coming out on a DVD on tomlab records. they are of the old fashion of the OCS and employ their old drummer/noisemaker whose name is hard to find, but yeah here is THEE OHSEES playing "we are free" near a freeway in San Francisco. this rules, i never thought it would ever be this way again.
