about

Oscar the Band Melbourne, Australia

Oscar the Band craft pseudo-jazz, junk funk and anti-pop with a keen sense of the inappropriate. Started in late 2000 as a 2 piece featuring guitar and trumpet, we got our name with the addition of a drummer who, not owning a kit, played rubbish bins.

Track Name: Nga Nga
Nga Nga Nga Nga Nga (etc.)

The safety pin's come loose.
Track Name: And Then...
Sit for a while
I sit and smile
I think about you for a while
Whenever you are on my mind
I think about you till I die

When you are near me
Oh you will hear me
I will sing so sweetly

Up in my blue heaven there will be a spot
for me to sing
Everyone can sit and watch me
While I do my thing

Tell them who I'm singing for
The one I adore
Will you join me my love?

I can sit by myself with a guitar
and I can sing the blues
You should know by now
That I would give anything to be with you

When I am near you
Oh I will hear you
You will sing so sweetly
Track Name: William the Cucumber
William!
Track Name: Caccabachia
Cacabachia.
Get your damn elbow off my pancreas
Track Name: Eat
In the physical world
No matter what philosophy I bleat
I'm just a leather sack of bones and meat
That's always looking round for thing to eat.
I like to eat.
Track Name: The Apricots of Doom
You're gonna die.
You're gonna die soon.
It's been fortold by
The apricots of doom.

You're gonna suffocate
Inside of your cocoon.
Hear them beating down your door
The apricots of doom.

The night has chortled far too soon
The laughing princess greets the moon
In her hand she holds a spoon
Sign of the apricots of doom.
