OBN IIIs: Mark on You: 7”

Nov 15, 2011

At first glance at the cover, I was expecting just another low-fi garage rock band and was mistaken. Intense and a little off-kilter, OBN IIIs seem like a band that can’t be contained to vinyl and need to be seen live. Mr. OBN III himself is quite the prolific Texan (he plays in The Bad Sports and was on the John Wesley Coleman Bad Lady Goes to Jail album too.) The guitar tone on “Mark on You” is searing. “Heavy Heart” is a driving, punk-y garage number. My only complaint is that there are only two songs on this record.
