Ok, so PJ Harvey bumps into U2 in an elevator and has tantric sex; 9 mos later they have a baby who is brain damaged and a bit moody. They name him SmashingPumpkinRadioheadMuse and he creates an original monster piece of art which he names-OLIPHANT. And so there you are-cool rock with some bite.

Biography

We have been together sluggin' and chuggin' for almost 6 years! Our songs are heavy, melodic, original, groovy and flow like a raging river! We can take it fast or slow or both-but it usually comes out to be an experience in the end! We create a lot of sound for just 3 people!
For a prime example of our essence-Check out "Disconnected"! Hop on, close your eyes and let go!

Lyrics

In Spite of you

Written By: Dan Oliphant

At least this once
Feel the light
Inside of you
In SPite of you
Just a spark-side to side
Can I get a light
Can I get a light

To start a fire

A pound of gold
would not suffice
could i bother you
could i bother you
Just a spark-side to side
Can I get a light
Can I get a light

To start a fire
In Spite of You

Repeat 1st verse/chorus

Bride

Written By: Oliphant

It's Alright/I'd be yours too
I'd wanna be your bride
since your soul is true/You'd be yours too
I'd wanna be your bride
The sun will shine upon your face
in your own time
inside of you-i'd love to taste
so come and play
Chorus:
Lay on the floor, your eyes closed-
so beautiful-here on my floor
Eyes closed-so beautiful, you're everything that what you are now.

It's Alright/I'd be yours too
I'd wanna be your bride
since your soul is true/You'd be yours too
I'd wanna be your bride
Chorus:
Lay on the floor, your eyes closed-
so beautiful-here on my floor
Eyes closed-so beautiful, you're anything that what you are now.
Eyes closed-so beautiful, you're anywhere that where you are now.
Eyes closed-so beautiful, you're everything that what you are now.
