Oh Sees / Flat Worms - O2 Academy Bristol - 02.09.18

OH SEES

THEE OH SEES ARE DEAD. LONG LIVE OH SEES

In time OCS morphed into an actual band, and worked under the usual flurry of names, most notably as The Oh Sees or The Ohsees, and eventually as Thee Oh Sees. The band's lineup has spawned and re-spawned a few times before reaching their current incarnation

featuring John Dwyer on guitar/vocals, Tim Hellman on
bass, Dan Rincon and Paul Quattrone on drums.

And now, the newly shorn Oh Sees waste no time in racing headlong into nightmarish battle with their mighty new record Orc (Dwyer’s 19th album as OCS/Thee Oh Sees/Oh Sees, etc.), and wouldn’t ya know it, they’ve clawed even farther up the ghastly peak last year’s A Weird Exits stormed so satisfyingly. The band is in tourgreased, anvil on a balance beam, gut-pleasingly heavy form, nimbly braining with equal dashes of abandon and menace on this fresh batch of bruisers and brooders, hypnotically stirred into to
the cauldron of chaos you’ve come to expect from, ahem, Oh Sees. Quattrone and Dan Rincon form a phalanx of interlocking double drums, alternately propelling and fleet footing shifting ground to
pinion Dwyer’s cliff-face guitars to the boogie. Tim Hellman keeps it swinging like a battle-axe to the eyebrows. More evil….more complex, more narcotic, more screech, more roar, more whisper,
there’s even more Brigid Dawson. Less “Thee”, but more of everything else.
