"Crystal Gazing Luck Amazing" - Compulsive Gamblers

Remember the Oblivians? Of course you do. Before them came the Compuslive Gamblers, headed (mostly) by Greg Obliviright aka Greg Cartwright, a major figure on the punk scene in Memphis. Proof? Just ask Jay Raetard. He will tell you. If that doesn't work, trace the lineage from punx The Final Solutions through Raetard to Obliviright. He is omnipresent.

Also, the album is good. It mixes girl group, garage, and punk sort of like the Hives, but not as Hivesish. Good tunes.
