Label: Jackass
Released 1992

Debut release from UK band Oil Seed Rape. As you will hear the bands main weapon of choice is the good old drum machine which is prominent with this E.P. Not surprisingly then the band got compared to Big Black mixed in with some Godflesh and perhaps some Swans. After this release the band would only go on to produce a 6 track LP and a final single (I think).

i do have their last[?] 7" released on Jackass from '94 called ]Parker Knoll'. They actually ditch the drum machine for this, and the tracks do sound less 'industrial' and more slint/rodan-like?

I could send you the link over the weekend?

i have the lp 'Six Steps To Womanhood', which aint as good as 'Paid'. I remember writing to them once, got a very nice letter back, they acknowledged the Albini / Big Black comparisons but also told me to go listen to some Don Caballero. Thats some good advice.
