In the craziest, most absurd Oblivion episode yet…Ziggy and Darla are invited to make an appearance on late-night music show “Born to Rock” with host Sam “The Raw” Hyde. All seems well until Ziggy makes one phone call to his publicist Mud Guts (Rikk Agnew) that will have a great affect on episodes to come! And what secret will Joy reveal to Blair when she learns that Darla has been reading her private, childhood diary?
Plus: We meet Frankie's straight-edge vegan friends...Sadie, Crane and Donny!
Guest starring: Rikk Agnew (legendary guitarist of The Adolescents and Christian Death) and funny-man Eric Hurst.
You don't want to be the last to see the episode which local-drug peddler Shady James refers to as, "The funniest Oblivion episode since the ending of MASH!"

The Zounds - Curse of the Zounds
"Their one and only studio LP turned out to be a classic unlike anything else at the time. An incredibly dense and claustrophobic record, it captured the paranoia of the post-hippy counter-culture and feeling of outsider status and it's personal affect on the human psyche. Songs like 'Did He Jump' reinforced the specific nature of society's reflected paranoia. It startles in its poignancy amidst the superficiality of most 'punk' from that time."
