Give me some history about the band? Did you guys meet in a special ed class?
Actually yeah. After we met in the special ed class we started talking about ‘The Kids at Whitney High’ and our love for their amazing music, then we just kinda started playing music one day

Which member of the band writes the songs? Cuz I want to send him a mail bomb.
We all write the parts ourselves, I write the drums, Mike writes his leads, John writes the rhythm, Jake does his thang with the bass and Damien writes the lyrics

Your band’s name is Oedipus Complex. Have you actually had sex with your mom, or are you just frontin’?
We’re ‘The Oedipus complex’ and hell yeah, we are the mother fuckers.

What kind of music did you grow up listening to? The Moffats?
We’ve been listening to The Penetrators, The Kids at Whitney High, Between the Buried and me, Undying, Slayer. We also listen to old school hardcore, but recently I have been getting into Swedish and Norwegian death metal.

Do you guys wear giant tampons on stage? Cuz you sound like a bunch of pussies.
Our old singer Chris wore that shit. The rest of us do sometimes, but the old singer loved that shit live.

What do you think your life would’ve been like had you not been born retarded?
A lot of things would be easier, I can tell you that much…

Do deaf kids ever come up to you and say you guys play some shitty music?
We’ve had a few, but then we took them into the woods and no one ever heard from them again…

Have kids ever run out of your shows screaming and bleeding from the ears?
Well a few kids have been bleeding through their noses, but I don’t think I’ve seen the ears bleed just yet.

Does Oedipus Complex have a website for people not to go to?
yeah, www.theoedipuscomplex.cjb.net

What do you do for fun when you’re not nauseating people with your music?
All we do is music, basically we listen to music that inspires us to play when we aren’t actually playing.

Do you guys cover any songs from Riverbottom Nightmare Band?
Can’t say I know who they are…we mostly cover ‘The Penetrators’ =P

Ok, I asked enough harsh questions, got anything to plug? Any shows coming up? etc.?
Yeah..i got something to plug in ya…We got some shows coming up. One of them being August 27th at 8:00 at Club NY in Middletown, NY. Costs $5.00 so go to it.
