In January 2011, OA, Cyril the Wolf, nonsensicalexis and myself played a live version of Wanderer on the Offensive at MAGFest‘s OverClocked ReMix panel. The room acoustics were pretty horrible, the mixing was off, the timing was iffy, and there was barely any room to move around. However, there was a spark; something intangible that was pretty freaking awesome about this.
The lineup eventually changed, with diotrans and DragonAvenger hopping on to form the group known as OverClocked University. With the blessings of OverClocked ReMix’s staff, the group was dubbed the official house band of the website. From that first appearance in 2011 through the beginning of 2013, the fierce-some four-some attended numerous panels and slowly added more songs to their repertoire. They were joined by the infamous Remix-a-tron 5000, with assistance by Palpable, Brandon Strader, and Rexy. In January 2013, the two year reunion of the first incarnation’s appearance, OverClocked University played their first full set at MAGFest.
In May of the same year, drummer Thomas Colegrove offered to do live drums for select performances of the group, bringing the live musician count to five. The group is currently in the process of recording their first album, while continuing to play shows the rest of this year and beyond.
