Biography

The Opir music project is an outlet for political, social, and economic opinions on some of today’s most difficult issues. An avid follower of current and historical affairs, and possessing a desire to create detailed, articulate, coherent, complex, eclectic and electronic, harsh sounding music dealing with these issues, Spencer Thomas started composing the first album, “America: 25 years in review (1983-2008).” The project exists to create music, (and related lyrics and articles) that live up to the idea that music can be intricate, articulate, powerful, and have strong messages. Smart, appropriately angry political music.

The debut album was borne of long simmering anger at the state of the United States of America since the beginning of the Reagan era; it’s definitely a product of an overarching, multi-decade zeitgeist. Though the Reagan era itself was a reaction to many of the excesses of the previous era, it has turned out, like many other eras, to create a country and a culture that is messy, volatile, and dangerously divided. The album should not be considered a palliative or antidote, but more of a byproduct of a very ill, broken country, a country whose core ideas of life, liberty, individual and human rights, and progress many care dearly about. It also bears remembering that no single group has a monopoly on this.

Opir is based in New York, New York.
