Designed to be the last aural will and testament of failed humanity, OXBOW actually garnered listeners from among the ranks of the fucked, with their 1989 release FUCKFEST (cfy; (and later, pathological)). Followed by KING OF THE JEWS (1991) (cfy), THE BALLS IN THE GREAT MEAT GRINDER COLLECTION (1991) (pathological), LET ME BE A WOMAN (1995) (brinkman/crippled dick hot wax) recorded by the estimable STEVE ALBINI, SERENADE IN RED (SST (1997)/CDHW (1996)) also recorded by ALBINI and GIBBS CHAPMAN (FAITH NO MORE, RED HOUSE PAINTERS), AN EVIL HEAT (2002) (neurot) by GIBBS CHAPMAN, LOVE THAT'S LAST (CD+DVD) (2006) (Hydra Head) by various, and THE NARCOTIC STORY (2007) (Hydra Head) co-produced by JOE CHICCARELLI (THE RACONTEURS, FRANK ZAPPA, ELTON JOHN), and NIKO WENNER, as well as various singles and dance remixes, OXBOW has met with increasing critical acclaim and popular support.

The OXBOW core membership -- DAN ADAMS/bass, GREG DAVIS/drums, EUGENE ROBINSON/voice, and NIKO WENNER/guitars+keyboards -- has been supplemented by the subtle stylings of LYDIA LUNCH, KLAUS FLOURIDE, JARBOE, MARIANNE FAITHFULL, RICHARD KERN (SONIC YOUTH et al), JON RASKIN from the ROVA SAX QUARTET, and a string section that would make Barry White wince.

Though claiming San Francisco as their hometown, OXBOW played in England in 1990 and toured Europe and the U.S. in 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2007. OXBOW has also performed in Tokyo, Osaka, London, Berlin, New York, Vienna, Oslo, Prague, Portland, Paris, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rome, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, Gent, and almost every other place people will pay them to hear them play.

Queen Elephantine
Queen Elephantine
Improvised stoner/doom metal from Hong Kong, currently based in New York City.
They started off as a guitar-bass duo consisting of Indrayudh ("Indy") Shome and Danny Quinn, and then called themselves "The Weapon of the King of Gods", while Shome was playing with his other group, Molten Lava Death Massage. (Shome was 16 at the time; Quinn had just turned 17)
Their line-up changed quite a bit over the time for various collaborative efforts and release before their debut album "Surya" appeared. "Surya" was recorded in June 2007 and self-released on CDr in Fall 2007, before getting a proper CD released in September 2008.
The second album "Kailash" was recorded in November and December 2008, with Indy Shome, Raj Narayanan, Brett Zweiman, Andrew Jude Riotto, and Chris Dialogue. The initial issue of the album is a condensed version (60 minutes of the full 71) of the album on cassette tape on Abandon Ship Records in March 2009.

Current Members (Feb. 2009):
Indrayudh Shome - Guitar, Vocals
Rajkishen Narayanan - Vocals
