Hey, kids! Anybody remember the post-hardcore tsunami known as Drive Like Jehu or their latter incarnation, the angular, garage-rocked Hot Snakes? Best bone up, they smoked! Obits are another fine band from guitarist-vocalist Rick Froberg. For Obits, Froberg turns down the BPMs, but turns up the reverb, the lo-fi garage grit, and the melodicism. The paint-huffing haymakers of yesteryear may lay in wait, but the shit still rocks in that familiar San Diego-patented way. With Forgetters and Shark?
