Oiler are a Grime crew from Camden.

This is their first album after Lady Sovereign convinced  Casual Records to let them record it.
Unfortunately for the members of the crew, all profits will go directly to Casual to cover the costs of the things the crew half-inched to sell off during the recording session.

I can't believe I almost missed this awesome game! Here's mine:

Artist:  Tekken.

Album: Neanderthal Interaction with Cro-Magnons

1. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
2. pcplayer
3. Distichodus petersii
4. Fujiko Takimoto
5. Christine Stix-Hackl
6. Court Funds Office
7. Rudolf Brandt
8. Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 (St. Louis Metrolink)
9. Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy
10. Idaho Statesman
11. Ken Ablack
12. Hamatar

Tekken combine their love of Germanic Industrial Death Metal with their love of gaming culture and...highways.  Their debut album (titled so in confidence over their superiority of other bands) displays assurance in all areas of musicianship.  The rousing, yet empty, opening number contrasts highly with the lofty and dark tones found in Court Funds Office.  The undoubtable highlight of the album is Hamatar, a full blooded guitar-a-thon lasting over 15 minutes.

(first google image for Altshausen)



Artist:  Altshausen
Album:  Academy Award for Best Original Musical

1. Baron Calverley
2. Lupinine
3. Frank Dobson
4. Raber's Almanac
5. Boston College Media Research and Action Project
6. Four Crosses

Each song on this six song EP from the German speed-pop-punk band clocks in at less than two minutes, but what they lack in quantity, they make up for in energy.  Rolling Stone dubbed them "a hell-spawn love child of The Dead Kennedy's, Blink-182, and Amy Grant".  The female lead singer hits the high notes like no other punk band dares.  The first single, "Four Crosses", is a heady ballad that meditates on the nature of war, love, and food poisoning.  Tracks "Baron Calverley" and "Frank Dobson" are the lead singer's diatribes against the titular former lovers she has had, and how she wants to eviscerate them in front of their pets.

Artist: Allan Campbell
Album: Trusted Network Connect

Track listing:

1.   Methlick
2.   Daniel Motlop
3.   Casco Viejo
4.   Shamsul Maidin
5.   Stylidium alsinoides
6.   WRR (FM)
7.   Mordovian State University
8.   Nicholas C. Petris
9.   Balun
10. Idiga
11. United-TI
12. Shilo

Review from elitistsnobsonline.com
Although Allan Campbell is one of the boldest, strangest, and most radically deconstructionist avant-garde composer in music today, his expressive social conscience makes his music relatable for the common man. *  Though obviously influenced by the greats - Dave Smith, Pere Ubu and Laurie Anderson come to mind - he takes the established genre of artificial postmodernist salad-bowl-style music synthesis and adds to it a unique Texan perspective.  His latest work, Trusted Network Connect, conveys his hopeful message - a sermon on the unity of mankind, and the ability of information technology to bring about the political realization of that unity.  The tracks "United-TI" (United Tech Israel) and "Shilo" (referring to an Israeli settlement on the West Bank) provide a fitting denouement - passionate and moving while remaining static and emotionally detached through the use of digitally-enhanced acoustic resonance at the natural frequency of the interior of the Dome of the Rock.  This brilliantly dull piece of musical mathematics nearly sent this reviewer into a coma.  5 stars (out of 100 possible)!


* No, it doesn't.

Artist:  Banking in the U.K.
Album: November

Track listing:

1.   Washington Monuments
2.   Timbuktu
3.   Holgate, Ohio
4.   MONIAC Computer
5.   The Algebra of Ice
6.   Antiseen
7.   Shiri
8.   Daet, Camarines Norte
9.   Selection Sort
10. High Level/Footner Lake Water Aerodrome

From the All-Music Guide
Banking in the U.K. are the masterminds behind the anarcho-capitalist art punk scene that has been taking Britain's college-age youth by storm these past few years.  Their sophomore effort, November, is not too serious a departure from their debut, Deregu-volution, in terms of style or lyrical themes.  They're still rockin' it hard with their audacious, guitar-driven song sound.  Indeed, some of the arrangements - particularly in the three-song medley that concludes the album - the transition from the haunting, forboding Gregorian chant-inspired spookiness of "Daet, Camarines Norte" to the ideological centerpiece of the album, "Selection Sort," to the two part, "Marquee Moon"-esque twelve-minute jam "High Level/Footnever Lake Water Aerodrome," - are even faster, ballsier, and guitar-tastic than their first effort..  Overall, though these lads aren't likely to change much, they certainly are growing.

(Oh, and for the record, that thing where Pete Townshend's head is supposed to be is actually a zoomed-in view of Pete Townshend's nose with bigger nostrils drawn in...poorly.....in MS Paint).

Wow, a band named for an alter-ego of Bender?  I want this album!

Hermon Atkins MacNeil, is a pretentious, self-indulgent, nigh unlistenable bore.  Don't buy it - it stinks.


Artist: Maria Klawe
Album: The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat

1.   Ready for Romance
2.   Enemonzo
3.   Keystone, Wisconsin
4.   Noriq Records
5.   Centro de Investigaciones de Astronomia
6.   Block Rockin' Beats
7.   Marici
8.   Penn State Nittany Lions Football under Tom Fennell
9.   Androgen Receptor
10. Joe Zychik
11. Neil Parish
12. Symphony No. 8 (Sibelius)

Maria Klawe is some sort of techno/industrial/house artist.  I'm not exactly sure because I'm too scared to listen to an album named after an adult animated film.

Christianity and Islam on Cassette tape. This was a compromise with the record company who pont blank refused to let them do it on 8-track.

The Star Spangled Banner (Whitney Houston Single) is sending a very clear message.  "We bought a lot of books about foreign countries."  Also, the hidden track "Kain Phalanx" is a lovely ballad about the manga character from Shadow Skill that proves that the entire band is peopled with geeks.
