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.


from The Deafening Quack, released August 7, 2003
Composition: Chris Carman and Beorn Leonard

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.
