Jack Oblivian

 
WHEN I MET JACK [OBLIVIAN], HE WAS THE FIRST PERSON I MET WHO DIDN’T SOUND LIKE ANYBODY I’D EVER HEARD. HE WASN’T TRYING TO SOUND LIKE ANYBODY I COULD PUT MY FINGER ON. SURE, HE HAD LOTS OF INFLUENCES, AND HE WOULD TELL YOU RIGHT AWAY WHAT THEY WERE... MOST PEOPLE WERE VERY TAKEN WITH WHATEVER THE MUSIC OF THE TIME WAS OR WHATEVER THEIR SOCIAL SCENE WAS INTO. HE JUST SEEMED LIKE HE WAS JUST FLYING HIS OWN FLAG.
