SYMPATHY FOR TH


Recorded in Atlanta on the 19th of August 1994. This live album is the crude and vital distillation of fluid that runs from the Downliner Sect to the Gorillas to Halo Of Flies to Thee Headcoats, straight into the Oblivians' veins. 16 great songs originally released as a limited edition bootleg.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Motorcycle Leather Boy 02. Viet Nam War Blues 03. Jim Cole 04. Feal Real Good 05. Static Party 06. And Then I Fucked Her 07. Someday You'll Be Loved 08. Love Killed My Brain 09. No Reason To Live 10. Plate In My Head 11. Shut My Mouth 12. Happy Blues 13. Blew My Cool 14. Shake Your Ass 15. Nigger Rich 16. Never Change

6 - 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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Motorcycle Leather Boy 02. Viet Nam War Blues 03. Jim Cole 04. Feal Real Good 05. Static Party 06. And Then I Fucked Her 07. Someday You'll Be Loved 08. Love Killed My Brain 09. No Reason To Live 10. Plate In My Head 11. Shut My Mouth 12. Happy Blues 13. Blew My Cool 14. Shake Your Ass 15. Nigger Rich 16. Never Change

7 - 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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Clones 02. No Time 03. What Rock N' Roll Is About 04. Memphis Creep 05. Something 4 Nothing 06. Big Black Hole 07. Can't Afford You Baby

11 - OBLIVIANS - SYMPATHY SESSIONS - (CD) 
SYMPATHY FOR TH


Parental advisory stickers be damned, this warningless sophomore effort from the Oblivians is packed full of explicit photos of very naked women. Mixed among the photos are shots of the Oblivian boys -- Jack, Greg, and Eric (aka Jackie-O, Gregi, and Erica) -- in drag. Needless to say, the only thing dirtier than the pictures is the actual music, some of the most spirited garage-abilly this side of the late, great Gibson Bros. With a bassless set up of two guitars, drums, and shifting vocal duties, the Oblivians somehow manage to create a fuller sound than many bands with twice as many members can muster. Songs tend to be short and to the point, but never sweet since the guitars walk a line between the smooth string-bending sound of vintage blues-based rock and guitar tones that conjure image of steel wool being rubbed on the strings. One of the key elements of rock & roll is humor; it allows the bands of only somewhat skilled musicians to not take themselves too seriously and be able to cut loose and rock out. The Oblivians have a wicked sense of humor. In addition to their garage chops and transvestite dabblings, the boys offer up songs with lyrics like "I am five hour man/ But she's an eight hour girl/ I think I'm in love." Recorded "live in the studio," Sympathy Sessions is probably the raunchiest rock & roll many listeners will ever come across, and the fact that the Oblivians hail from the historical town of Memphis, TN, makes their brand of sleaze rock all the more surprising. All said, the Oblivians' music is perhaps best described as being ing lo-fi 60s garage rock heavily influenced by years of listening to Ramones, Stooges, Lazy Cowgirls, Cramps, and Gibson Bros. records. What makes the Oblivians worthwhile is the sense of urgency they pour into their music as they evangelically implore listeners to embrace the power of rock & roll.
