These Oh Sees, eh? One of the first bands to decide, hey, let's add an E onto that The, you can hardly accuse them of not innovating. Few bands have given more to psyche in the modern era than these lot, a band of melodic rabble-rousers who could ar...read more »

Thee Oh Sees / Total Control
Split


Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

Thee Oh Sees
Grave Blockers

You’re thinking how on earth do Thee Oh Sees manage to put so many new records out, right? Well, in the case of this one it’s a reissue. Grave Blockers was originally released in 2006 and sees John Dwyer et al in a gentler mood, playing some psych-folk rather than the unhinged garage rock to which we’ve become accustomed.

OCS
Live In San Francisco

OCS. Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees. All the same thing. This is OCS Live In San Francisco. This was originally released as a very limited 4LP set. Now we have a 2LP version which will be much easier to get your hands on. It is released via Rock Is Hell, a label which released some early stuff by Thee Oh Sees. 2LP on Rock Is Hell limited to 1700 copies.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects and overdriven amplifier stacks.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

Thee Oh Sees
Fortress

Thee Oh Sees really love ‘Fortress’ imagery don’t they? I’m sure this is the 3rd or 4th release associated with fortresses, always suggesting that John Dwyer’s garage-punk heroes are mounting a dramatic adventure. Lovely. The Fortress single is a stand-alone release recorded in the same sessions as the recent Mutilator album, plus a live cut on the flip! 7” on Castle Face.

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy prog vibe (see sleeve).   

OCS
Memory Of A Cut Off Head

What must it be like to make a record every week? Well John Dwyer is trying to find out with his various Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees and OCS records simultaneously causing panic within our filing system. This latest release sees him reunite with vocal foil Brigid Dawson creating a hushed affair at odds with his recent energetic garage rock. Back to the roots. Quiet and sumptuous. 

Oh Sees
Orc

Rebranded garage rock professors Oh Sees have become a little more informal with this one -- "please, call me Oh Sees", they ask as you step into their office for a chat. Cool dads. They follow up duelling records A Weird Exits and An Odd Entrances (one a hard-hitting, twice-drummed psych rock record, the other a soft experimental curveball) with Orc, which is loud and turgid a la its title. Some of the gnarliest work here, it would appear -- "ew" is the watchword.

John Dwyer
Exploded Globes: An Annotated Collection Of Posters 1999-2016

John Dwyer, leader of Thee Oh Sees and king of the Castle Face record label, is almost as prolific with his visual artwork as with his music. Exploded Globes gathers up seventeen-years-worth of posters that he has created, accompanied by tantalising annotations that tell tales of what happened at the shows. This is Castle Face’s first book publication.

Damaged Bug
Bunker Funk

Damaged Bug is the cracked-up solo project of Thee Oh Sees frontman and all-round garage-psych mastermind John Dwyer. Bunker Funk is a cool little thing, wrapping songs in lots of strange sounds and textures. Electroacoustic garage-funk? Yeah, something like that. Out on Dwyer’s own imprint Castle Face.

Thee Oh Sees
A Weird Exits

Didn’t Thee Oh Sees split up a year or so ago? I’m pretty sure they did, but it obviously didn’t last long, because they are back back back with a new album! I guess John Dwyer just couldn’t hold the garage-rock energy back any longer. A Weird Exits is extra-rhythmic (two drummers) and extra-hypnotising: it's also spread across 2 LPs, with the D-side containing an etching. On Dwyer’s own Castle Face imprint.

Thee Oh Sees
The Master’s Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In

Thee Oh Sees never caught a ride on the psych garage wave; they've lived on it, made their bed on it, champions of the genre and masters of its energy levels. The Master’s Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In, originally released in 2008, showed them in peak form, covering their quick-fire melodies in a trench-coat of noisy effects. There's occasionally a second drummer. That's just awesome and I know you won't fight me on it.

Thee Oh Sees
Live In San Francisco

Thee banner garage rawk band played the Chapel out in San Francisco, launching their happy-go-lucky psychedelia into a crowd of possibly stoned hopefuls. This extensive set is presented not only as audio but in DVD format with photos to boot. Musically, it scales more towards their propulsive, loud, noisy side -- but the Oh Sees have so many songs I'd expect you'll feel a little bit of everything.

Thee Oh Sees
The Cool Death of Island Raiders

Thee Oh Sees reissue thee 2006 LP(ee) The Cool Death Of Island Raiders. While John Dwyer et al are garage-punk royalty nowadays, it appears that back in the mid-2000’s they were more interested in mucking about with drones than in crafting short blasts of scuzz-rock. While the bones of the band’s later style is apparent in the freak-folk tracks here (think Animal Collective-meets-Jay Reatard) there is also a fair whack of The Flaming Lips to The Cool Death Of Island Raiders.
