  • The Knaughty Knights
Knaughty Knights were a Memphis garage band that featured Jack Oblivian and Rich Crook. They were active from 2001 to 2006, and released records on Goner, Solid Sex Lovie Doll, Norton, Perpetrator, and Shattered Records- the label run by Jay Reatard and Alix Brown.

Some Knaughty Knights songs sound like what Jack Oblivian has perfected with The Tennessee Tearjerkers and most currently with The Sheiks, but other numbers- specifically the punchy punk banger "Death Has Come Over Me" -prove that Rich Crook brought an edge to this stellar band of Memphis creeps. Check out some of the Knaughty Knights work below, and best of luck finding these singles.

____ Rules, Ok? is a new weekly installment on the Memphis Flyer Music Blog where music editor Chris Shaw focuses in on Memphis music past and present.
