- Desperation by Oblivians
10/10 Neil 3rd June 2013
Call the police!! After 15 long years the Oblivians are back! Was it worth the wait....? Well hell yeah! While in memphis a week before desperation was finally released I went into goner records, picked up the new human eye record (which is also absolutely essential it has to be said) and asked the young lady working if there was any cheeky promo pressings of the new album - she said Eric, owner of goner and Oblivians member may have copies if I went back the following day. I did indeed try! Before leaving the bluff city for the 6 hour drive to New Orleans I called in at opening time and asked the main man himself, the most approachable friendly guy you could ever meet and I was kinda nervous since the Oblivians have been a massive influence on me since discovering popular favorites 11 years ago. With a big smile he said - ah you tryin to jump the front of the queue huh! I got copies in later today! Unfortunately I had to head south right then so I couldn't wait but soon as I was back home from that trip I was straight to my friends at Norman records to finally get my copy, thanks guys! I managed to wait 11 years for a new Oblivians record so another week or so didn't seem too bad.
