Greg Cartwright: A selective discography.

Is Compulsive Gambler Greg Cartwright, aka Greg Oblivian, aka Mr. Reigning Sound, a creature of unnatural origins, expelled like a peach pit from the quivering hindquarters of Jerry Lee Lewis? Man, you listen to these records and tell me. His punk side is buttered with gospel, slathered in blues, and served up Replacements-style -- only rawer, with nods to Chuck Berry and a host of forgotten garage-rock heroes.
