Oxbow

1989
San Francisco, CA, Usa
PostPunk
Noise

Designed to be the last aural will and testament of failed humanity, Oxbow actually garnered listeners from among the ranks of the fucked, with their 1990 release Fuckfest.
Followed by King of The Jews, The balls in the great meat grinder collection, and Let me be a Woman recorded by the estimable Steve Albini, Serenade in Red also recorded by Albini and Gibbs Chapman, and various singles and dance remixes, Oxbow has met with increasing critical acclaim and popular support.
The Oxbow core membership - Dan Adams, Greg Davis, Eugene Robinson and Niko Wenner – has been supplemented by the subtle stylings of Lydia Lunch, Klaus Flouride, Marianne Faithfull, Richard Kern, a string section that would make Barry White wince.
