Oh Sees Selling Minotaur Head for Charity

The most recent album for the Oh Sees, also known as Thee Oh Sees and OCS, is last summer’s Memory of a Cut off Head.

Also, Dwyer is hoping to raise funds for the family of late friend Chris Corales by auctioning off the “hand made” minotaur head used in the band’s 2013 “Minotaur” video.

Check out the Ebay auction here:
