about

"Originally released in May of 2005 as part of her 'ReMemetic ReMedia Psyoperational Pstrategies' series, Buttress O'Kneel's "The Oil of War" is considered by many to be her most powerful work, after 2001's "Afraid of Enduring Freedom". This classic audiodocumentary traces oil's formation, use, reliance, addiction, and eventual demise, all in O'Kneel's signature plunderphonic intellectronica style. Like all of her audiodocumentaries, it is best listened to as one entire piece, with the listener employing a deep attentive focus, sitting comfortably, employing a healthy posture, and remaining well hydrated.

(Ironically, when first released, this piece came only on CD, itself a petrochemical product. However, upon its 2014 rerelease, it is (depending on the consumer's own energy sources) finally available petrochemical-free.)"

about

Buttress O'Kneel Australia

“Words like "mashup" and "remix" don't really do justice to Buttress O'Kneel's method - Top 40 pop crap gets sliced, diced, and tossed into a dizzying, exciting hardcore electro stew. Compared to other djs who timidly drop a Vanilla Ice acapella over a Chemical Bros intro just to move a dance floor, O'Kneel shreds copyrights with a blood-curdling vehemence. Smash the state!”
- Music 4 Maniacs
