Thee Oh Sees may have started as the name John Dwyer used to release some of his experimental home recordings, but since those humble beginnings TOS has evolved into so much more. Hooks drawing from punk, garage, and psychedelic influences will grab you by the ear and refuse to let go.
Perhaps one of their most defining features is how much material they have recorded. Their album Mutilator Defeated At Last was released last May and is their 16th studio album.
On a personal note, the first request I ever took while DJing on WKNC was for Thee Oh Sees. I was unfamiliar with them at the time but I have become an avid listener since then. The song was “If I Stay Too Long” off of 2011’s Castlemania. I can’t wait for their performance this Friday – it’s sure to be Phuzzy.
