At last Friday’s multi-band bill at the Knitting Factory, headliner Oneida made sure there were no stones left unturned. As “Fat” Bobby introduced each song with stream of consciousness banter, and the quartet pounded out in perfect syncopation, the level of intensity reached its peak during a particularly tight 11-minute version of “Up With People”. After their hour-long sonic explosion of psychedelic neo-punk, the lights came up quickly and Oneida left the crowd dazed but satisfied.
This recording was made from the identical location as Oakley Hall, but is perhaps a bit clearer as the volume was quite intense for this set. We thank Bobby, Kid and the rest of Oneida for the permission to record and the notification of that fact to the venue. It was a terrific night of music, and we’re very pleased we captured it all. Enjoy!
