Oh It's The OF

by The OF

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    “It’s not often that a CD begins with a spoken introduction, but when the first song revolves around a hermit crab and some seagulls fighting over a french fry, it’s nice to have a little help. Using standard rock instrumentation plus cello, mandolin, and triangle in unusual ways, the self-named “foil-rock” quintet creates music as eclectic as its members’ onstage attire: tinfoil togas and colanders as hats.” AZARIA PODPLESKY/Seattle Weekly

    “This Roslyn WA avant garde band is no joke. I was especially impressed with the instrumentals. “Sodo Monkey Pt 1” and “Sodo Monkey Pt 2” feature jamming guitars, and the 14-minute “Mouse Trash Recipe” is a modernist instrumental jazz suite with some very effective solo work that rocks from beginning to end. There are some vocal sounds here that will either put you in mind of composers like John Cage or have you giggling in derision.” Jack Goodstein/Blogcritics

John Carey interview:

The OF formed in 2010 in a garage in Roslyn, WA.

In spite of the local scene's attempts to eradicate them, The OF have survived long enough to offend audiences with their weirdo music and to commence recording on their first project: "Oh It's The OF."

Carey is a veteran of Seattle legends The Queen Annes, Refuzors, Shattered Machine, and Trapezoid Monks. Writes material and grumbles about life's little injustices. Knows a lobster by name.

Ian Gray is a multiple stringed instrument player with a diverse musical background ranging from bawdy folksongs, jazz, classical, and bossa nova. Since being assimilated into The OF he has made the 4 string electric bass his primary sound form manipulation device. Other musical efforts he has been involved in include All Folked Up, The Slomosapiens, The Swauk Prairie Ramblers, The Ivory Tower Tets, Movin' Mountains, and The Dusty James Band.

We just found Jim Morgan in a barrel behind the local sheet metal factory. He seems happy enough, so we keep him around.
