Oblivians - Soul Food (1995)

So long as the posting of garage rock and like-minded genres is fashionable for me, might as well put down one of the greats. Oblivians as I referenced in an old post the sister group, Compulsive Gamblers, was a seminal garage rock/punk band. Built on the groundwork on previous bands like the MC5, the Stooges and the Ramones, Oblivians more prominent feature is dirty, fast-paced, lo-fi rock that is distorted as fuck and drenched in hardly decipherable singing. Even went as far as to go by Oblivian as a last name as a tip of the hat to the previous acts that inspired them. Hopefully you get the drill by now on stuff like this, meant to be heard loudly in a speeding car or while drinking some beer to fully absorb the energy. Do be careful and don't mix those though.
