Dark Oz is a garage band hailing from Portland, OR in the spirit of classic Pink Floyd psychedelia paired with elements of punk rock.
Combining the terseness and angst of 90s plaid-clad guitar rock with the jingle of 60s garage pop, Dark Oz describes itself as "garunge." It has gone through multiple mutations, beginning as a solo acoustic project and then going through a markedly punk-induced intense period of recording and touring with Lorien Bourne (a.k.a. Styx) on drums. Bourne died while on tour. Dark Oz reformed as 3 piece with Geoff Unger on bass and Micky Rivera on drums.
