Sportsguitar is the project of Swiss singer and guitarist Oliver Obert and
Swiss guitarist Roli Saum, backed by occasional partners.
Fade/ Cliche (Derivative, 1994) is an entertaining collection of
"lo-fi" ballads, featuring a dual guitar attack that is not shy on feedback
and improvisation. The band's breakthrough was the
catchy ditty Gong Gong (Subpop, 1995), that became a college favorite
when it was released as a single.
Married 3 Kids (Matador, 1997) sounds less spontaneous and surreal than
the debut album, but still boasts amusing and noisy melodies such as
Happy Already (Matador, 1998) drifts towards a more professional
sound, inspired perhaps by Jesus And Mary Chain.
Romeo Goes and Look Shit are among their best songs,
and among their silliest.
