We've just received test pressings for our forthcoming LP, Pleasure Trauma! This is the last step in the approval process, which means 250 really cool looking and sounding pieces of wax will be heading our way in the very near future. It's been a long time coming, and it's almost here.

April 2 @ Lo-Fi!
Our first performance of 2017 will occur at Lo-Fi performance gallery in support of old friends This Blinding Light and SF rockers Impuritan! Be there or be an equilateral four-sided polygon!
Structuring new songs today... progress programming prog-rock progressions; good stuff on the way!
OcOm DOTCOM 2.0
Welcome to the new and improved www.ocelotomelet.com!
Hear it here first, straight from the horse's mouth!
We've added quite a bit more content and have a sleek new look courtesy our friend Sam at tsohonis.com. He's a mean man in a meat suit and he means business. Well, not really, but he is one heckuva web designer...
If you're here, you've made it past the aardvark- well done, he's a daft bastard. Here you will find sacntuary from the horrors of what we're calling the "real world". Seems more like the Twilight Zone lately, but in these strange times we must learn to trust our senses. As Hunter S. Thompson once said "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro".
We've got some big things planned for 2017 (more details coming soon). For the time being, go ahead and have a look around... immerse yourself in our weird world!
On the way to Mastery...
Well, our studio time last week resulted in one hell of a record, I have to admit, as well as a few surprises in some of the songs... there's some pure ear candy in there for y'alls. We've given the green light to send it off to the mastering master, Chris Hanszek for [you guessed it] mastering!
We're all quite excited if you couldn't tell...
Return To Soundhouse
Oc / Om will return again [again] to the mighty Soundhouse early February to put the icing on our new record, Pleasure Trauma, again with the guidance of the legendary Jack Endino.
In other news, big things are happening down at the [eggplant]. Rehearsal has resumed with a new drummer [more on that later], including work on several new songs... We're also working on a project that will completely revolutionize the way we do live shows. I don't want to give too much away right now, but suffice it to say we're dealing with a different beast.
Happy New Year y'alls, let's kick it's ass!
Now we wait...
So people have been asking me about the new album; here's the scoop: The fact of the matter is, we didn't feel like we accomplished in two days what we set out to do with what has now become a full length LP. (the ruffs sound awesome, but our ears were bigger than our eyes :p) We have decided that, rather than mixing what we have and putting out a good sounding album, we do one more day in the studio and release a really great sounding album. We are still waiting to set a date with Mr. Endino; he is a very busy man, so once we know, you'll know. The waiting is the hardest part which brings a horrible song to mind and only makes it worse but the it will be worth it, we promise :) xoxo, Os
Our first remix album, [Replicant Exorcist] is now available for free, just in time for Halloween! Basically sounds like Ocelot Omelet run through a wood chipper... Check it out!!!
Well, we are very pleased to report, our two days at Soundhouse went swimmingly. I've been listening to the rough mixes and I can say with most certainty this is going to be a monster of a record! We are very pleased with the results so far... we're taking a brief respite, then we're gonna do a little listening, a little mixing and see if there's anything else we want to add, but we're all very excited... Keep y'all posted!!!
DATES BOOKED for NEW RECORDING SESSIONS!
Ocelot Omelet are returning to Soundhouse to record our next offering, tentatively entitled "Pleasure Trauma", once again with the illustrious Jack Endino! The record will naturally be released on 180 gram vinyl with a digital download produced from a separate master. More details to come!!!
