0033. Otto Von Schirach – Spine Serpents From Sperm Island [2007]


Ohhhh man… This album… This is the first album I ever heard by Otto Von Schirach.  I saw him back in 2008 when he toured with Venetian Snares.  What.a.fuckin’.show!  I didn’t know anything about OVS before I saw him live, and I was in no way prepared to have my mind blown like it was.  Just to give you an idea what I’m talking about, check out this clip from his 2011 tour with Atari Teenage Riot:

Fucking.amazing!  Right?!  I was moshing and laughing my ass off simultaneously during this show.  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that shit.  I was at this show on 4/16/12.  Fuckin’ best $15 I’ve ever spent on concert tickets.  Who needs this bullshit of paying thousands of dollars to see these ultra popular DJs?  I certainly don’t.

Anyway, if you have a taste for bizarre electronic music, you’ll most likely dig this album.  I mean, look at the song titles, for fuck’s sake.  You know you’re in for a weird ride with this one.
