Much like John Reis with his Night Marchers, old cohort Rick Froberg is sticking loosely to his guns, stylistically speaking, with his latest vehicle Obits.

8/10 Brian Staff review, 31 March 2011

Much like John Reis with his Night Marchers, old cohort Rick Froberg is sticking loosely to his guns, stylistically speaking, with his latest vehicle Obits. Nothing here is quite as feral & volatile as Drive Like Jehu or early Hot Snakes but there's nevertheless an undeniably exciting, fuzzy, post-Garage element to this NY based band's second album that befits a man of his pedigree. There's plenty of tight, muscular playing - cool, sharp 'n' dirty riffs; solid heads-down drumming; Rick's earthy snotty rasp and a disciplined, steady rumble of bass. After over two decades in the business it's a total pleasure to hear a man still playing with such vigour, in the process fronting some really enjoyable, spirited & melodic rock gems. Still got a real edge & an enviable way with a killer hook have Froberg and his merry men. Better than Reis's latest lot i'm afraid to say although that may get me shot by some quarters. Fuck 'em, I know my ears!
