OCS

BandAlternativeRock

Cracking out of the sad post-revolutionary Romania, OCS (Omul cu Sobolani - Rat Man) play a truly evolutive music considering their origin: grunge, prog rock, influences range from Placebo to Pearl Jam. Hooky guitars, alert drums rythm, distorted bass, compelling into a deliriously insinuant music.

Biography

OCS started as a way for the band members to speak their minds, in a system that was way behind western evolution. After 10 years of following their own beliefs and doing exactly as they saw fit ( 7 albums, 21 videos of which all the scripts were written by the band members, a reality show with the band's life on tour aired on national television) OCS has grown into an A list act.
The true feeling of this band is given by the fact that they have gathered a strong fan base the last 10 years, even though they haven't been aired accordingly on radio and TV on accounts of their name (Rat Man) and their "not so pop" songs. Things have started to change for the last 5 years, when Romanian shows have started to pay attention to music, and not to naked girl bands.
In 2007 OCS has launched a 10 year anniversary DVD including all 21 official videos and 4 live recordings that was promoted throughout a national tour.
OCS is currently working on their 8th studio album to be released this fall.

Lyrics

Fall/Winter 06-07 Depression

Written By: Dan Amariei

I want a luxury soap and a rope,
I'll give the soap to the filthy and let the rope hang

One thing is clear:
Mornings should be forbidden again
I fell out of bed
Too burnt, my fuse cracked again

If there's anyone alive out there,
I really need a luxury soap and a rope
I need a laim stool
Once a day,
So they say that's ok

I want a luxury soap and a rope,
I'll give the soap to the filthy and let the rope hang

If there's anyone alive out there,
I really need a luxury soap and a rope
I need a laim stool
Once a day,
So they say that's ok

I want a luxury soap and a ropex2
