Obits are a Brooklyn-based mildly mannered, shaggy garage, punk-rock four piece, heading south of the equator on their first Australian tour. As a band, the Obits are but wee infants, yet, as a ‘muso’ collective they have a smashing long pedigree. Fronted by singer/writer/guitarist Rick Froberg (Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, Pitchfork), the band have two albums out on the suitably pedigreed SubPop label distributed by Inertia in Australia. With a stripped-down rock sound, incorporating elements of surf and garage, the band’s repertoire of three-minute yowlers, sutures a sweet and sonic sound. The band is, by its members’ own admissions, a straightforward proposition. Simply, to rock you some, and to roll you some.
