Escape Goat

by The Of

The OF would like you to think they a group of space lobsters from some realm of existence. Even in remote Roslyn, WA, where they headquarter, these foil-clad colander-wearing toilet-busting barbecue-banging lunatics are often misunderstood.

Album Notes
Like their first album, Escape Goat has mostly long songs with many parts. With Guitars and other noise-makers. You may find them beautiful. You may find them weird. You might find them too long. The OF are unique and that, my friends, is no longer an easy thing to be.

For their first album, Oh It's The OF, they were a four piece. They have added another guitar player and a sax player and sometimes percussion; they are now an advancing army of six or seven. More players invoking the compositions of Mr. John Carey is just more beautiful.

Their album cover comes from a collage assembled by a lumber monkey on a working clip board over a period of ten years. It is Art! Art of the proletariat!

Here’s some nice things people said about their first album:

“It’s not often that a CD begins with a spoken introduction, but when the first song revolves around a hermit crab and some seagulls fighting over a french fry, it’s nice to have a little help. Using standard rock instrumentation plus cello, mandolin, and triangle in unusual ways, the self-named “foil-rock” quintet creates music as eclectic as its members’ onstage attire: tinfoil togas and colanders as hats. AZARIA PODPLESKY/Seattle Weekly

“Part Residents, part Mothers/Zappa/Beefheart and a whole lotta shaking, belching, vomiting, moaning and groaning amidst some damn bitchin’ guitar wailing and crazed B-52’s-like tomfoolery add up to a party atmosphere that we can all use right about now.” Jeff Penczak/Terrascope

“The Of is a great independent rock pop quintet who is not afraid to tackle the “fear of the unknown” with dark and obnoxious melodies that cover many different genres of music. The quintet’s latest CD “Oh It’s the OF” is a haunting, but whimsical journey through humanity’s wild imagination.” Leslie Snyder/Elephant Talk Indie

About Green Monkey Records

Green Monkey “Mach I” produced 45 releases from 1983 to 1991 and came back to life August 2009 to produce 35 more, “Mach II.” In theory, it is “underground rock,” but Dyer isn’t always sure what that means. It has something to do with electric guitars…usually…he thinks. Although he can’t say exactly what it is, he and his artists know it when they hear it.
