Rubber Oh’s debut album ‘Strange Craft’, is a deliriously tuneful sci-fi tinged psych-pop. Mapping out a retro-futuristic trajectory that stretches from the wide-eyed travails of the late-’60s through to the hard-edged mind expansions of the 21st century, this collection of warped interstellar voyages is intent on taking the scenic route across the cosmic continuum.
The album took shape initially in snatched hours around Sam Grant from Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs regular job as studio engineer at Newcastle’s Blank Studios. While Sam performed the majority of the music, he had some help from friends and acquaintances including Beth Jeans Houghton [Du Blonde] as well as a couple of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs members.
The incredible cover art for Strange Craft was created by the very talented 3D artist Santi Zoraidez.
