OMC

On 31 January 2010, Pauly Fuemana died at North Shore Hospital in Auckland after suffering for several years from a chronic degenerative disease. He was 40 years old. His elder brother Phil had died in 2005 of a heart attack. "How Bizarre" briefly entered the charts again in New Zealand following news of his death.


OMC is a music group from Otara, Auckland, New Zealand which had a worldwide hit with the song "How Bizarre" in 1996.
Pauly Fuemana and Alan Jansson were, in effect, OMC. Whilst Pauly fronted the project and took it around the world, the music was created by both of them.
Signed to Simon Grigg's huh! label, OMC released the single "How Bizarre" in New Zealand in 1995.
In 1997 and 1998, "How Bizarre" spent 36 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart, peaking at 4.
Between 1995 and 2000 OMC are estimated to have sold between three and four million records worldwide, and is the biggest selling NZ recorded and signed record ever.
In 2002, their song "How Bizarre" reached #71 on the 100 Greatest One-hit Wonders hosted by William Shatner.
In January 2007 OMC released, in New Zealand, a new single, 4 All of Us, featuring Lucy Lawless on backing vocals. Like his earlier work, this was produced and co-written by Alan Jansson.
