Daisyhead & The Mooncrickets | Agents of Oblivion

Agents of Oblivion is a psychedelic/blues rock group from Louisiana. While they did get to release an official album, they broke up before getting a second released. This group is unique in the Post-Acid Bath bands that Dax Riggs formed in that it actually resembles a full band. All of the other "bands" are essentially Dax performing solo. Sure, there might be an extra member here or there, but at least in my mind, they're more support, than members of a band. Also, like I mentioned yesterday, Acid Bath was his only band to have any kind of growls, or heaviness. So, if that's all you like, sorry. I'll be back Tuesday, and will post something completely different then. For now, however, here are some samples.

Agents of Oblivion - Wither

Agents of Oblivion - The Skeletal Circus Derails This song is from their demo. It's also actually a cover of a song performed by another of Dax's band's, Daisyhead & The Mooncrickets.


Technically, I should have posted this before Agents of Oblivion, as they were formed before AOB. But as this band didn't release any official albums, it seemed to flow better reversed. There are two recordings of Daisyhead that are known to exist, but to even call them demos would be stretching it. These samples are from their second recording, The Skeleton Circus Derails. Also, note that the pictures shown here were added by the person that uploaded the songs to Utub.

Daisyhead and the Mooncrickets - Ghost of a Ghost

Daisyhead and the Mooncrickets - Downtown

I promise tomorrow will bring some higher quality recordings.
