OYC now on Bandcamp
Oh indeed. OYC's page on Bandcamp is now live - click here to visit. So far we've added TROPIC, Equator (with bonus track), The Euphoria of Disobedience (with bonus track), Peyote (with bonus track), Into Dark Water (with two bonus tracks) and - deep joy - Rumours of Music, an album we recorded in 1984 that was unreleased as a whole until 2011 when the tracks formed side 1, disc 1 of the box set Ambiguism. All bonus tracks are available to buy individually. For those of you who don't know, Bandcamp is the musician's friend, giving a far higher percentage of each purchase to the artist than other digi sales platforms. What's not to like?
NEW OYC LP out now
Entitled TROPIC, it's our first release since 2011's Ambiguism boxed set and is available on limited edition CD and super-cool clear vinyl, as well as digital. TROPIC is a radical reworking of OYC archive material from the mid/late 1990s and appears on the auf abwegen label run by our pal Till Kniola based in Cologne, Germany. Buy CD and vinyl versions from aufabwegen, Soleilmoon (US buyers) or Phonica (UK buyers). Buy digital version via our Bandcamp page.
