From school beginnings in 1984 Ooberman developed over years of self-produced recordings in obscurity with a brief period in the UK mainstream 1998-2002. This included 4 Glastonbury appearances, a UK top 40 single (Blossoms Falling), a major label album produced by Stephen Street and Single of the Year (Shorley Wall) voted by The Times newspaper, James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) and Radio One’s Mark Radcliffe.

On their own Rotodisc label The Oob continued into two enchanting psychedelic folk prog pop masterpieces in the Running Girl Mini-Album (2001) and Hey Petrunko album (2003). Reviews were incredible, sales were poor and they dropped themselves from their own label.
