Oblivians Bio:

The Oblivians were an American garage punk trio that existed from 1993 to 1998. In the 1990s, their blues-infused brand of bravado, crudely recorded music made them one of the most popular and prominent bands within the underground garage rock scene.
Formed in Memphis, Tennessee, the band consisted of three members -- Greg Cartwright, Jack Yarber, and Eric Friedl—who alternated between instruments on stage and in the studio, each member serving as vocalist, guitarist, and drummer, in turn. The band recorded three LPs, as well as a number of EPs and singles, typically recording songs live in the studio.

The band has performed numerous reunion shows since officially disbanding, as well as a highly anticipated 2009 European reunion tour with The Gories, who also reformed to co-headline the dates.

As of January 2012, it has been confirmed that the Oblivians are due to record a new full-length album on In The Red Records.
