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.
