jack is my favorite of the oblivians songwriters right now, wore out on greg awhile ago, great as he is. jack's stuff is usually about 50/50 for me, but thats just because he is capable of playing so many styles. i look forward to hearing the new one...

interesting choice for a record title, since that is a very Seattle, WA. name.

Man, all the Oblivians have just killed it. Reigning Sound, Jack O, TSOT, and you still get an awesome Oblivians show every once a awhile. I wish more great bands would break up like that.

Rat City is sort of a "song inside" of a song. Love it!

Glad to see "Caboose Jump" is on it; asked him a while back if he was ever going to do anything with it.. I have a recording of you guys trying to work that out at practice for the Gories tour a few years ago. That and whatever that "Back Street Dropout", or whatever it was... Will pick it up. Hopefully soon.

Anybody else think 'Kidnapper' sounds a lot like a 'Lil Bob tune. I was sure that was going to be a cover for about the first 15 seconds! It's my favorite so far though . . .

Hmmm, seems to be a cover after all! Anybody know who's the original is, can't find anything by the credits (D. Jewel, FE Garvin).

Recurring theme!

Running In A Rat Race 7" (Solid Sex Lovie Doll Records, 2006, SSLD 008)

Love the record- the song that always catches me off guard is "Moses & Me." Love the take on it.

I know there's an old soul song called "Kidnapper" (b/w "A Thrill") on La Louisianne by Jewell & Rubies.
Not sure if that's it (no sound on computer at work to compare), but maybe....?

great song. also, a beach music classic...

I Love It! Jack O. kills! And a killer dancer to boot!

That must be it! Funny that it ends up being something from La Louisianne anyways!!!

Just came across this live clip for the song from a couple weeks ago, now in search of a version of the original to hear . . .

Nice, thanks.

So, then, Lil' Bob comes along with this a few years after, a little bit of borrowing going on ...

Dunno..but I was driving around today playing that one over and over...obsessed with both that little melody and the bass line...both of which I made a point to figure out when I got home....great song....
