BioBrooklyn's genre-defying Oneida takes their primary cues from '60s garage and punk bands (especially the MC5), but throw in plenty of heavy, bluesy '70s stoner rock (think Blue Cheer, Foghat, etc.), plus dashes of jerky synth-pop, avant-garde jazz and kraut-rock. Featuring guitarist/vocalist Papa Crazy (aka PCRZ), keyboardist Bobby Matador (aka Fat Bobby), drummer Kid Millions, and bassist Hanoi Jane (aka Baby Jane), the group made a name for itself in the New York area by virtue of its raucous live performances, which were frequently conducted in lofts and warehouses. Oneida's 1997 debut A Place at El Shaddai's was released by Turnbuckle, but by 1999's Enemy Hogs, they had moved to Jagjaguwar. They were especially prolific in 2000, releasing both the Steel Rod EP and the full-length Come on Everybody Let's Rock. They continued to issue albums at a relatively swift pace, issuing Anthem of the Moon in 2001 and Each One Teach One a year later. Atheists, Reconsider a split EP with the equally formidable Liars, also came out that year on the Arena Rock Recording Company imprint. 2003 saw Oneida release their sixth album Secret Wars, as well as writing and recording the score for Speedo, a documentary about Long Island and New Jersey's demolition derby circuit.
