ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sounds like a Christian-rock band? It's not. But oh my god doesn't have a notarized contract on file at the devil's office, either. THIS CHICAGO ROCK BAND IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH GOD OR SATAN (though the band admires both their work).

No, oh my god is an Earthbound rock band--a killer one. Billy O'Neill (vocals/bass), Ig (organ/vocals) and Bish (drums/vocals) can out-punk, out-pop and out-rock 'em all, and they're doing that one show and one album at a time.

Formed in late '99, this utterly unique organ-bass-drums trio unleashes captivating tones and razor-sharp hooks in song after striking song...from the piano-driven pop of "February 14" and "There Goes the World" to the raucous rock of "The Uptown Lumber" and "Pearls of Wisdom." Even in ripping rock tunes like "Get Steady" and "Volatile," it's Billy's infectious vocal melodies that step to the fore, backed by the overdriven organ of Ig (who has played with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Van Morrison, Jeff Healey and more) and the titanic drums of Bish.

Oh my god has earned a constant stream of praise from press all over the U.S. as they've toured hundreds of shows each of the last few years. And the band's releases--a self-titled EP (2000) and the albums "Well" (2001), "The Action Album" (2002), "Interrogations & Confessions" (2003) and "You're Too Straight to Love Me" (2004)--have seen them grow into one of the tightest, most wildly original rock bands anywhere. Sounds like hype? Ask the thousands of concert-goers around the States who've left the room saying "OH MY GOD!" after a show.

Dart around www.ohmygodmusic.com to read the press, view the pix and hearthe songs of oh my god. And please give to your local church, synagogue, mosque or Satanic Society--whichever you prefer (it's none of our business).

This is good
What a sound very demensional. I love the keyboard driven sound. Great stuff. Very unique

Awesome chainsaw organ riffs that sound like they're being stretched out over a bed of nails paired with poppy vocals melodies and bouncing drums... Oh My God. My jaw hit my desk and my mind flashed to the days when Quasi's "Featuring Birds" was in constant rotation at my house (though other comparisons use Devo or Zappa). This record may share an organ tone or two with Quasi, but these fellows offer a few more takes on a pop song: more linear and guitar-riff-like organ counter-melodies, a distant atmosphere that's shellacked with reverb, and a soul rhythm vocal that belts through the dead of winter. This record is one for severe head-nod dancing, plus it's got a multi-dimensional depth of production that's the envy of any independent rock band. All that said, I must add that imagining their live show gives me chills.

Blown away
A more heavy and will-ful Hammond-trio doesn't come to my mind - outstanding songwriting

These guys have set the trend for all bands coming out of Chicago.
Oh My God has one of the freshest sounds that I have heard in a long time. The lyrics are awesome, the music is out of this world, and Billy rocks. These guys have set the trend for all bands coming out of Chicago, and I think that everyone should listen up to them now, before they are huge. Many comparisons can be made, but there is no one else like them. The Action Album! is as great as all of their music. There's no way I could live without every bit of Oh My God that I own.
