Knowing is half the battle…

  • Brooklyn is a breeding ground for the strangest of musical endeavors, none more repetitive and minimalistic than the undefinable tunes of Oneida who’s members blaze meandering trails to vast sonic soundscapes in the form of nine-plus minute jams of tripped out ominous moans on antique instruments.
  • In 2007 the group celebrated its 10th anniversary and in June dropped its 11th studio release, Absolute II…no track is under 9:21.

  • In 2010 Oneida’s Kid Millions (drums) and Fat Bobby (organ and guitar) started the two-man side-project People Of The North releasing its first record, just as spooky and extensive (in sound and time) as the duo’s past work.

“Tunnels” by People Of The North

NOTE: On Saturday October 1st, Oneida will present The Acropolis III, a 12-hour event of improvisational collaboration based upon what takes place during recording sessions in the collective’s Williamsburg, NY studio.  Past live collaborators have included The Flaming Lips and Deerhoof (who are on the bill for ATP AP) to name a couple…Kid Millions and Fat Bobby (People Of North) will perform on Sunday October 2nd.
