OBLIVIANS… Will Never Be Forgotten in Belgium


OBLIVIANS – DOK Ghent, Belgium – 26 July 2016


The legendary punks from Memphis, Tennessee returned to the sonic world with a bang in 2013 – after 16 years – with the gloriously striking DESPERATION album. Doing again what they do damn best… producing barbed wire electricity. Fast, loud, with sharp teeth and in your face. Just a couple of days ago the oblivian brothers hit my hometown Ghent, Belgium. Without a doubt one of the most inflammatory gigs I saw all year. As fast as the Ramones, as blasting as MC5, as spectacular as Bo Diddley on speed and as sharp as an Iggy Stooge knife. A crushing steamroller from start to finish. An overwhelming night! HELL YEAH!
