With electric live shows and a catalog so big that even die-hard fans can have trouble naming all of its releases, Thee OH Sees has gone through different names, lineups and sounds over the years. Thee OH Sees started as one of several projects of San Francisco garage rocker John Dwyer. Initially, the project was known as Orinoka Crash Suite, OCS and other, similar names before the band settled on the name Thee OH Sees for nearly a decade. However, one thing that's always remained consistent is the band's commitment to fantastic music and equally great live shows.
Oh Thee Can You See
Under the Thee OH Sees name, the band's lineup was rounded out with members like Brigid Dawson, Mike Shoun and Petey Dammit. The band's psychedelic approach to garage rock on albums such as The Master's Bedroom Is Worth Spending a Night In and Help was much appreciated by fans of the genres. The band also released more subdued albums, such as Castlemania which primarily featured Dwyer and Dawson. In 2011, the band dropped Carrion Crawler/The Dream, which featured some of its best-loved songs, including "The Dream" and "Contraption/Soul Desert." The core backing lineup of Dawson, Shoun and Dammit was over as of the release of Drop in 2014 although Dawson did contribute to other albums. Thee OH Sees' release schedule stayed steady, despite some fears of a permanent end to the band. The sound changed as two drummers became part of the band, and its name changed as well. The release of its album Orc came with news that the band had changed its name to "Oh Sees." The same year, Dwyer revived the OCS name for a collaborative album with Dwyer, Memory of a Cut Off Hand.
