M.C. Osso was a true renaissance man who spent his life expressing himself through the creation of music, paintings, photographs and graphic designs before passing away due to cancer in 1998. Some of M.C.'s earliest influences as a lyricist can be found in the work of such writers as William S. Burroughs and Franz Kafka. His work as a painter and graphic artist reflect stylistic influences from such surrealist artists as Andy Warhol, Dali and Rene Magritte. As a musician and songwriter, M.C. had many influences; Bob Dylan and Devo among them. All of these artistic influences instilled a unique personal life view in M.C. that demanded spontaneous expression at all times.
