Oksun Ox's Ben Holmes from Auckland, NZ (The Hoolie buzzes /Drorgan /Spacesuit..) performs his one-man-band act OKSUN OX!: live finger beats, foot thumping, twanging theremin, hard out riffs, casio boogaloo, sound fx to the maximus + heeeeaps more. He stamps his foot & bellows a passionate croon. He plays keyboard notes with a plastic finger attached to the end of a tiny guitar. He pulls funky frown faces and tells off his children.

“this record is a classic slab of Stabbies-style tongue pressure.. the atmosphere is charged with articulate energy and mystery. What could be more ducky?” - Byron Coley (Wire Magazine)

"fantastic one man band act 'Oksun Ox' is like a mashup of the Skeptics, Residents and Brotown" - a friend

"He frowns cos it gets funky. It is odd, precious & unique music. Like a cross between Prince & Pumice." - Stefan Nevilee (Stabbies etc)
