29) "The Mid-Morning Recording"     Oppenheimer-'Oppenheimer'
In March 2006, Orlando and I got to see Oppenheimer live for the first time. All the way from Belfast, Ireland they just happened to be in Austin on St Patty's Day for their first ever American gig. Since then, I've seen the band three other times, and each time I did, I got to record their set for archival or broadcast purposes. Each time they rocked the place out and impressed many along the way. I would have to say right off that they may have the best influences of any band I know. Influences like David Lynch films, Brian Eno, The Orb and Mates of State arerepresented in their music. I would have to say that they have the best taste in film and music, and Oppenheimer have a good thing going. Not many bands can claim such a huge palette of influence. It shows in their work. Two members playing drums, guitars, keyboards, and vocoders. For just two guys, their sound is thick and stunning. In the live setting they have their amazing sound man, and John Peel look-a-like, Gerry Bannon laying in the backing tracks. Behind the board, he becomes their third member and really allows their live sound to be equally as impressive as their studio tracks. Even though they use backing tracks in the live setting, it doesn't take away from the sound coming from the acutal performance. They seam rock and techno together to a perfect pop fit. This self-titled release is an amazing debut and it leaves us fans wanting to see what they pull out next. Most likely another album full of great single worthy songs. They seem to love our little show as well, even putting us on their SXSW report for BBC Ireland. Maybe if Gerry ever decides to retire, they will hire me to work their magic behind the board. They are total professionals, and I totally respect the sound they are providing. You should as well. "This ain't the way to get the trouble started.".
