Oblivion

Oblivion was formed in Philadelphia in the fall of 1984. Originally, the band was the four-piece lineup of Steve (who had formerly been bassist in YDI), Marc (ex-Kremlin Korps and Vatican Commandos), and Mick (formerly of Wasted Talent), with Todd Cote on vocals. After Todd left the band, Dave replaced him as singer, and Fil was brought on as second/lead guitarist. Oblivion played frequently in the Philly punk/hardcore scene between 1984-86, finally breaking up in late ’86.

Oblivion – 2-Song Demo Tape (1986)

1. Magic Theater (music: Lukshides, lyrics: Cote)
2. Judgment Day (music: Begnal/Lukshides, lyrics: Fernich)

The basic tracks for these songs were laid down at Philly’s Spectrum Studios in 1985, and then finished (with some overdubs) in 1986.
The image accompanying the first song in this video is a sticker that was printed at the time, while the photo appearing with the second track is a 1986 group shot.

Live Kennel Club – February 19, 1986

This show was recorded at Philadelphia’s Kennel Club on February 19, 1986 and was one of our last, if not the last show. This gig didn’t start until about 1 AM due to equipment breakdowns that required trips in freezing cold weather for spare parts. Hopefully, the few hardy souls that stayed felt it worth their time. Members of the band were:

Mick Begnal – drums (also of Wasted Talent fame)
Fil Cerny – lead guitar
Marc Fernich – bass (ex-Kremlin Korps & Homo Picnic)
Steve Lukshides – rhythm guitar (ex-Y DI bass player)
Dave Wynter – vocals

WKDU Band Bash – October 5th 1985


WKDU Band Bash October 5th 1985 (Homo Picnic, 5 Story Fall, Oblivion, Fabulous Fondas, M-Fakter)

WKDU Band Bash

WKDU free band bash from October 1985. There were a lot of bands at this show – most of the Video is of Homo Picnic and 5 Story Fall but there is also some of Oblivion, M Fakter, and Ambush Bugs. Apparently more bands where going to play (Dead Milkmen plus others) but the company doing the sound and/or Drexel security pulled the plug. At the end of the 2nd Homo Picnic clip there is a short interview with them. I just realized I forgot to try and figure out the song titles (if anyone knows them please add them in a comment) Also if anyone has the 5 Story Fall demo please let me know it would be great to put those up.

Thanks to Val for the video
