" TRACK OF THE DAY #306 .... their influence has been felt in countless garage rockers ... the likes of The White Stripes, King Khan and the late Jay Reatard all bearing the imprint of their soul-and-blues-soaked scuzz. Now the Tennessee group is back with a new album in ‘Desperation’, released 17th June, and it has plenty going for it that would put the current crop of ‘Nuggets’-lovin’ knuckle-draggers to shame."
The Fly 
 
The Oblivians have premiered 'Pinball King' via The Fly.... Taken from the band's first studio full-length since 1997’s ...Play Nine Songs with Mr. Quintron.
 
Desperation picks up right where the band left off, delivering fourteen scorching tracks of soulful punk-garage-blues trash rock in- formed in equal parts by ’50s rock ’n’ roll, ’60s garage rock, Memphis soul, Delta blues and Killed By Death-style punk. There’s even a Cajun Zydeco cover here!
 
As Greg Oblivian puts it, “Between our last record as a band in ’97 and now, a lot of water has passed below that bridge. We three went our own ways after that and pursued our own musical goals. Personally, I often missed the dynamic that Jack and Eric offered to my songwriting. Almost as much as I missed being given carte blanche to add a thing or two to theirs. I’ve played with lots of great musicians in the interim but needless to say, it’s a hard itch to scratch. The dynamic between us was a singular thing. So, over the years as we would occasionally reunite for a festival or special occasion, the idea began to grow in the back of my mind—the idea of making a new record. I mean, if you’re going to keep playing as a band eventually you’ll want new songs to play. Because as much as we enjoyed playing together the thing I missed the most was creating together. So that’s what we did.”
