After seven records, multiple world tours, a documentary ("Music For Adults"), TV appearances, and collaborations (Marianne Faithfull, Lydia Lunch, Jarboe, Klaus
Flouride, Richard Kern), Oxbow now present "The Narcotic Story", the first in a triptych (to later include both a film and a soundtrack) of successful and beautiful ruin. Coproduced
by Joe Chiccarelli (Frank Zappa, American Music Club, The Shins, The Raconteurs). "Slide guitar work reigns throughout the offering, along with sludgy noise
and sparse bits of drumming to create murky, bleak, and frigid soundscapes. Unsettling hooks weave in and out of reed organs, interstitial whistles, pianos, violins, violas,
and even violoncellos...Oxbow's performances have no equal" - Josh Barr, aversion.com.
