When I interviewed the late Jay Reatard for a story about five years ago, we spent a good chunk of time talking about the Oblivians. It's not hard to hear how the band's sleazy, snot-nosed, iconic garage rock informed Reatard's own songwriting sensibilities, but he credited the fellow Memphians for taking him under their collective wing and introducing him to records that bridged the gap from early influences like the Monkees to more obscure punk rock. The Oblivians were no more at the time, though Eric Oblivian (né Friedl) still ran Goner Records (which happened to release some of Reatard's early recordings). Fast forward to 2013, and the Oblivians have just released Desperation, their first studio album in 16 years. MATT SULLIVAN
