Formed in Memphis in 1993, Oblivians are Greg Oblivian (aka Greg Cartwright), Eric Oblivian (aka Eric Friedl) and Jack Oblivian (aka Jack Yarber). Scaring the country folks of Memphis since their 1995 debut Soul Food in 1995, the Oblivians refuse to bow to any preconceived misconceptions of three-piece ensembles; instead, this is a band that pays homage to the Ramones, the Sonics, and the Stooges by creating their own sound of nostalgic, ‘60s garage punk using lo-fi equipment.
In both their live shows and recordings, the three members alternate between instruments, each playing guitar, drums and singing lead vocals.
“There’s a case to be made that Oblivians are the greatest Memphis music act of the post- Al Green/Big Star era…With a deeper musicality and more charisma than most, but with no loss of energy or attitude for it, they are legends in their scene for good reason.”—Memphis Flyer
