Aspera: Sugar & Feathered
Aspera Ad Astra: Insound Tour Support Series #4
Ativin: Pills Vs. Planes
Oneida: Caesar's Column (remixes)
Oneida are a fascinating and frighteningly intense band, mixing distorted electronics with a fluent, dynamic rhythm section. They were formed in 1997 in Brooklyn, New York, and have been a mainstay of the underground scene there ever since, recording numerous cult records over the years, constantly touring America and Europe with their various line ups. The band like to be compared to ESG, Moondog and The Incredible String band, but have actually been compared to Faust, Pere Ubu, the Boredoms, the Butthole Surfers. This 12" remix album on Rough Trade includes the original album version (from Secret Wars) and four remixes by their NYC underground compadres, including hip NYC producer Nicolas Vernhes (of Fischerspooner, Black Dice, Fiery Furnaces fame), Phil Manley (of Trans Am) and The Liars (Mute Records).
