Orchestra of Skin and Bone were an Australian post-punk band who were active during the 1980s. The band consisted principally of vocalist Ollie Olsen, Marie Hoy and percussionist John Murphy.[1][2] They released a self-titled mini-LP in 1986, and numerous cassettes on underground noise labels. A track from the mini-LP, "Sometimes" was later covered by Olsen's project with Michael Hutchence, Max Q.
