1 - OBLIVIANS - DESPERATION - (CD) 
IN THE RED


In The Red is proud to announce the release of The Oblivians first studio full-length album from since 1997s ...Play Nine Songs with Mr. Quintron. Desperation picks up right where the band left off, delivering fourteen scorching tracks of soulful punk-garage-blues trash rock informed in equal parts by 50s rock n roll, 60s garage rock, Memphis soul, Delta blues and Killed By Death-style punk. Theres even a Cajun Zydeco cover here! As Greg Oblivian puts it, "Between our last record as a band in 97 and now, a lot of water has passed below that bridge. We three went our own ways after that and pursued our own musical goals. Personally, I often missed the dynamic that Jack and Eric offered to my songwriting. Almost as much as I missed being given carte blanche to add a thing or two to theirs. Ive played with lots of great musicians in the interim but needless to say, its a hard itch to scratch. The dynamic between us was a singular thing. So, over the years as we would occasionally reunite for a festival or special occasion, the idea began to grow in the back of my mind-the idea of making a new record. I mean, if youre going to keep playing as a band eventually youll want new songs to play. Because as much as we enjoyed playing together the thing I missed the most was creating together. So thats what we did.".

3 - OBLIVIANS - NEVER ENOUGH (10") - (EP) 
SYMPATHY FOR TH


OBLIVIANS were a three-piece band so far ahead of their time people are still trying to catch up with them. Jack, Eric and Greg all wrote songs and live it was a constant exercise in musical chairs for pole position. This manic slab was originally released in 1994. From their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee they created a wild lurid strain of punk rock that leveled all (then and today) pretenders to the throne. Comparisons could be THE BLUES EXPLOSION, THE MUMMIES and of course all the psychotic southern trash that preceded them. This 10" features eight tracks, each a lo-fi crunch masterpiece. You get original classics like; "Five Hour Man", "Feel Real Good" and "Shut My Mouth".

8 - OBLIVIANS - ROCK'N'ROLL HOLIDAY (LIVE ATLANTA) - (LP) 
SYMPATHY FOR TH


Originally available in an edition of 300 copies in 1995 on Negro Records, Rock n Roll Holiday was re- released in 2003 on SYMPATHY and was out of print again very shortly after. Considerable demand and reasonable logic dictates that the time is right to make this brutal live attack available once more. Recorded in 1994 in Atlanta this recording captures OBLIVIANS at their crudest/rudest best. Nearly an homage (albeit a fucked-up one) to Lightning Hopkins as 7 of the 16 tracks are lifted from his catalog and delivered with OBLIVIANS trademark abandon. Rock n Roll Holiday is a 45-minute attack of manic and obsessively crude blues/trash/rock delivered to an undeniably entusiastic crowd.

9 - OBLIVIANS - SIX OF THE BEST (10") - (EP) 
SYMPATHY FOR TH


OBLIVIANS formed in 1993 and were/are (when the mood strikes them) a world famous trash trio from Memphis, Tennessee. Six Of The Best was their second 10" produced for Sympathy and originally released in 1996. OBLIVIANS created a wild, lurid strain of musical mayhem that leveled all (then and today) pretenders to the throne. Contrary to its title this 10" features seven tracks, each a lo-fi masterpiece. You get original classics like; "Clones", "Cant Afford You" and "Memphis Creep". OBLIVIANS, with their undeniable swagger and reckless abandon, insured their place as one of the most prominent bands in the underground punk rock scene.
