about

"I spent my time drinking and staring at a television in the airport bar. More death and destruction. Crime. Pollution. All the news stories were telling me to be frightened. All the commercials were telling me to buy things I didn’t need. The message was that people could only be passive victims or consumers." -John Twelve Hawks

"What the mass media offers is not popular art, but entertainment which is intended to be consumed like food, forgotten, and replaced by a new dish." -W. H. Auden

"Don’t hate the media, become the media." -Jello Biafra

OSCOB's full-length debut "Eating Yourself Alive" is a plunderphonic collage of noise that evokes flickering TV screens and late-night insomnia. Waves of tape hiss swell between angular lo-fi loops and bizarre soundscapes through 23 tracks of nightmareish sample work.
