The Out Of Bodies began when two aspiring young artists, Donald Jefferes and Daniel Banic, met while attending the High School of Art and Design in the late 70s. Throughout the 80s they were joined by Don's long term buddy Lloyd Goldfine, his cousin Joe Vento, and another A&D artist, Mark DeGross.

Traveling back and forth to each others homes in the Bronx and College Point Queens they recorded all of their music on a beat up portable 4-track Fostex recorder, and occasionally a set of boom-boxes they dubbed "wheezer 1 and wheezer 2" named aptly after the noisy tape-hiss they would create.




A creative group of artists/film makers/horror buffs - The Out Of Bodies have worked on many projects both on their own and in collaboration with each other, including comics, film projects and comedy tapes - but their most notable body of work continues to be their music. As diverse as their own personalities their music has been compared to, foremost, The Beatles (as a group and solo artists) - but they also share a particular interest in the diverse musical and vocal styles of Harry Nilsson, Cat Stevens, Sting, Paul Simon, Randy Newman, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jeff Lynne and the Electric Light Orchestra, Beck, Squeeze, Radiohead, Neil Innes, David Bowie, Motown artists, Michael Penn and Sly and The Family Stone...

...only no where as good.




None of them professional musicians, with the possible near exception of Dan - who has self taught himself to play virtually anything - one can easily find themselves perplexed on why, throughout the years, the Out Of Bodies have never bothered to cut an album for themselves or to record any of their material in a studio. It is only their close friends and relatives that can tell you how they've witnessed themselves, that unlike your average band, the OOBs prefer to commit their bursts of creativity to tape spontaneously and without obligation.

In short they will tell you that they do it "just for fun".




Whatever the reason, it is perhaps this "quirk" that makes the OOBs so appealing rather than being the nemeses that holds them back. Within their vast collection of their music on cassette tapes, many of their songs are sandwiched between comedy skits, impromptu takes, and a whole lot of laughing.

They're a silly bunch.

Individually and a little bit older today the OOBs are still drawing a curious audience.

You've got lovely songs here, my fav may be "Mirrorland."

"the vocal shines on this one, a plaintive, wailin' chorus "mirror land," the 1st verse, 'wash your face/wash your hands/look inside the mirror land,' sets the stage, and the couplets recall the 60s groups, done w finesse, recalls the beegees a bit, unplugged on this, kudos...Creative Vibe station

cheers,

Steve
