Oneida, Each One Teach One
2002 | Label: Jagjaguwar / SC Distribution

Resident weirdos of an already-weird scene, Oneida are an incredibly insular band full of in-jokes and Incredible String Band references (much of 2001's Anthem of the Moon was devoted to this cause). They are also one of the finest psychedelic bands around, and Each One Teach One is their best moment. Unless you have a taste for self-abuse, you would be wise to dodge the noise-drone cut "Sheets of Easter" (amazing live but… read more »

Ehhhh.

2-1/2 stars I would have to agree with Pikg. They lack the hypnotic grooves, it sounds like the kids in the practice space next door to my space warming up (o.k., o.k., better than that but.) The y are definitely lacking something. I love this style of music but this just doesnt seem to grab my attention and I lose interest in the monotony of it all very quickly. Some good ideas though.

Well...

I simply ADORE Sheets Of Easter, though I don't think anyone's ever let me play the whole thing at them. One of my favourite live music moments ever was walking into the arena at an ATP festival with a massive hangover only to realise that's what they were playing. For 25 minutes. Perfect cure...

If...

If you can get through the first two long tracks (and I'll bet you can't) --- the rest is a breeze. Oh yes, those longer tracks are completely and unflinchingly repetitious and somewhat Krautrock-ious for sure, but they lack the HIP-notic groove thang that made groove-related Krautrock so appealing. The real problem here is the overly dense/dull/thick mix and unappealing production quality... (this is certainly NOT Conny Plank folks) !!!! These problems only serve to strangle the grooves to within an inch of their lives. Most will not dig this. I don't either. The rest of the tracks (the shorter ones) are quite interesting. Interesting enough to DL more from this group in the future. There's something going on here for sure.

great album, emusic doesn't have it all

Doxxman

Great album of minimalist repitition and Sonic Youth meets Can type music. It really is great in every way, one one of the finest albums realeased this decade...but emusic is missing the first 2 songs from the second disc, so i can't be complete in my review...... get it together boys

They Say All Music Guide

Combining ’70s-style sludge/stoner rock with arty, new wave punk and Krautrock’s penchant for effective use of repetition, Each One Teach One shows Oneida both branching out and refining their already unique style of heavy rock. Disc one of this double-disc set features two lengthy songs. The first, “Sheets of Easter,” tests the listener’s patience by repeating a single brain-pummeling riff for over 14 minutes. “Antibiotics,” the other song on disc one, features slightly more variation and a herky-jerky rhythm that isn’t quite as abusive on the ears, though it does go on for more than 16 minutes. This might be a little much for the uninitiated, but anyone acclimated to the early works of Can or Amon Düül II will find merit in these two songs. If not, however, there’s still disc two. Containing seven shorter songs, the second disc can easily stand alone as a complete listening experience. The title track starts things off with a simple but effective riff that explodes into a screeching swirl of keyboard effects. “People of the North,” which first appeared on Anthem of the Moon, is presented here in a more polished and concise form, with a heavy space dub feel to it. “Sneak Into the Woods” slows things down with a grimy, sinister keyboard riff, and “Rugaru” plays up the band’s tribal element with distant chanting atop simple percussion and toy piano. “Black Chamber” keeps this tribal vibe going while pulling it together into a more coherent song with great surrealistic lyrics (sample: “I heard them talk about me but my ears turned into jewels”). The instrumental “No Label” rounds out the album with a shambling junkyard gamelan dirge. Viewing their albums as a continuum, Each One Teach One is a bold but logical next step for Oneida. The essential sound is familiar, but the qualities setting them apart have come together in new and interesting ways. – Jason Nickey
