Eating Yourself Alive is an album by OSCOB, published on cassette through CHAMBER 38 in 2016.

In 2021, the album was very briefly uploaded to Bedlam Tapes whilst the label owner was uploading OVERGROWTH and the unreleased ArtFluids album Dream Injury. This version of the album, titled Eating Yourself Alive β was actually an earlier draft of the album, notably not being mastered and missing the collaboration tracks on the final release.

"I spent my time drinking and staring at a television in the airport bar. More death and destruction. Crime. Pollution. All the news stories were telling me to be frightened. All the commercials were telling me to buy things I didn’t need. The message was that people could only be passive victims or consumers." -John Twelve Hawks

"What the mass media offers is not popular art, but entertainment which is intended to be consumed like food, forgotten, and replaced by a new dish." -W. H. Auden

"Don’t hate the media, become the media." -Jello Biafra

OSCOB's full-length debut "Eating Yourself Alive" is a plunderphonic collage of noise that evokes flickering TV screens and late-night insomnia. Waves of tape hiss swell between angular lo-fi loops and bizarre soundscapes through 23 tracks of nightmareish sample work.
