Oh Sees are putting out a box set with 12 of their albums...on 8-Track. Really. The format, which peaked in the mid-'70s, is now home to albums The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In, Help, Castlemania, Carrion Crawler/The Dream EP, Putrifiers II, Floating Coffin, Drop, Mutilator Defeated at Last, A Weird Exits, Orc, Memory of a Cut Off Head, and Smote Reverser. Every 8-track cart in this collection was reconditioned by hand from 40+ year old cartridges and each album is on a specific color and hand numbered cartridge.

Housed in a box featuring new artwork by longtime collaborator Elzo Durt, Oh Sees/Thee Oh Sees/OCS: The 8-Track Collection also comes with box also comes with a 36-page fanzine, a 5x7 photo signed by Oh Sees main man John Dwyer, plus iron-on patches, pins and stickers. It took them a year to put this to put the 100 box sets together, 60 of which are for sale to the public. Says main Oh See John Dwyer: "Niche? Yes. Substantial? Yes. Fucking cool? We think so."

Preorders are available Monday, November 25 at 10 AM Pacific. You can read more of Dwyer's press release for the box set, and listen to a stream of "Beat Quest" (from Smote Reverser) below.
