At 9.30am on Saturday December 4, the five members of Oneida, their Secret Project Robot visuals crew, stage manager Kyle Hepp and Jagjaguwar’s UK publicist/merch monkey entered the Crazy Horse venue at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead to set up the second Oneida Presents The Ocropolis at All Tomorrow’s Parties.

The first took place in September 2009 at the New York ATP curated by The Flaming Lips; this time the O’s gracious hosts were Godspeed You! Black Emperor. For a full explanation, please see the festival’s official billing and programme notes. In shorthand: that’s a continuous 10 hour jam, folks! Aided by assorted musical guests, SPR’s killer light show and gear borrowed off Portishead (thank you Mr Barrow and the staff of ATP).

The following ‘tweetline’ (all timings approximate) describes the action, compiled from various twitter updates.  All that and video of the performance after the jump!

BLACK MOUNTAIN return to the UK and Europe, perform at ATP

It’s been nearly three years since Canadian quintet Black Mountain’s eponymous debut – “a modern heavy psych masterpiece”, according to Mojo magazine. Fans included The Flaming Lips, J Mascis and Mudhoney, the latter inviting British Columbia’s finest to join them at All Tomorrow’s Parties in April 2006; Black Mountain will return to the festival in December 2007 at the invitation of Nightmare Before Christmas curators Portishead.

Immediately preceding their 2007 ATP appearance, Black Mountain will be performing throughout Europe and the UK (see tour dates below). They will be performing many songs from their upcoming second full-length called “In The Future”, which comes out on CD, LP, and as a limited edition double CD on Jagjaguwar on January 21, 2008. If, as Plan B magazine noted of the first LP, “Every song could be an album to itself, by a band with lesser ideas and the ability to express them”, then “In The Future” sees those distinctive individual strands woven into a seamless studio tapestry that’s a quantum leap, both sonically and compositionally, from its predecessor.

Stay tuned for additional Black Mountain announcements regarding extensive touring throughout 2008, as plans are in the works to hit up every nook and cranny of this wondrous globe.
