OSEES
Protean Threat

Actually, unlike the regular adage, there are THREE certainties in life: death, taxes, and a new Oh Sees album every year. On top of a forthcoming album as part of a new group called Bent Arcana, it’s clear that not even lockdown can stop Dwyer from his furious creative output. For their 23rd studio record, John Dwyer’s merry men undergo yet another slight name change to release Protean Threat as Osees.

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
Floating Coffin

Which one is this then? It seems it was the fourteenth album from the endless splurge of creativity that comes from the noggin' of John Dwyer and his Thee Oh Sees friends. Released in 2013 the album was more of a group effort than earlier discs, heavy and dark it contained matched their garage rock racket with quieter, more reflective moments. 

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
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.

John Dwyer
Vinegar Mirror

Just in case you didn’t know, John Dwyer is not only the creative and driving force behind everyone’s favourite San Francisco rock band Oh Sees and co-owner of the Castle Face label, he also likes to take photos. Vinegar Mirror is a coffee table book filled with his photos taken between 2009 and 2013. The book depicts what caught Dwyer’s eye from his home in San Francisco to pretty much everywhere else.

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.

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. 

Thee Oh Sees
Thee Hounds Of Foggy Notion

'Thee Hounds Of Foggy Notion' is an early live cut of sorts from the prolific garage/psych rock outfit Thee Oh Sees. The idea was to have the group tour in a van across various settings of Los Angeles and play a gig at various weird and wonderful locations. Minimal camera equipment, petrol powered engines and a pedalboard in a trusty suitcase feature here, as the band play a delightfully weird, trippy, folky and droney take on a number of tracks. An intriguing collection which provides insight into the warped mind of Mr. Dwyer. 

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. 

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.

Coachwhips
Get Ya Body Next To Mine

Castle Face announces a loogie-shined re-release of  Coachwhips’ Get Yer Body Next Ta Mine on CD and vinyl! The tracks have been re-tweaked to taste (a pinch of capsicum) and what a picture emerges—the scuzz and squall cracking ever so slightlyand revealing a coffee-can full of earworms underneath.The zombie-shuffle come-on of the title track is worth the price of admission alone, but there’s adrenalized bludgeoners here as well: “1000 Years,” “UFO, Please TakeHer Home” and “Yes, I’m Down” all capture the band attheir sweat-soaked best.

Coachwhips
Bangers Vs Fuckers

Awww would you just look at that adorable cover?! The musical content on show is nothing like that sugary sweet album sleeve, instead 'Bangers vs. Fuckers' sees John Dwyer of (Thee) Oh Sees fame playing a noisy, lo-fi take on punk and garage rock. It's a short but sweet album of energetic, headbanging fun. If you like Oh Sees at their fastest, early Ty Segall, Jay Reatard, Oblivians, The Gories and all that good stuff, then you'll love this one.
