From School Band to Chart Success

From School Band to Chart Success

Who: Oblivia
Where: SJ's on Beaumont
When: Thursday December 14, 2000

Sydney's OBLIVIA was formed in the western suburbs by guitarist TONY JUKE and bass player PETE BANNER. The old school chums boasted record collections containing 'old 45s of bands such as THE SMITHS, THE CURE and ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN'. Last year the band scored chart success with MY FRIEND, after signing to ALBERTS. Joined by Dubliner JOSH ORANGE on lead vocals, guitarist JOHNNY SANS and drummer OWEN THOMSON, Oblivia will perform tomorrow night at SJ's Hotel.

Lyrically the band describes itself as 'social vacuum cleaners, voyeurs, analysts'.

'Every modern-day emotion has been shoved under the Oblivia microscope.'

TE has five copies of OBLIVIA'S limited edition single MIND BOMB to give away.

The single contains the album track, Mind Bomb and an acoustic version of their smash single My Friend.
