OBN IIIs: The One and Only: LP

This might be the best record I’ve bought in a long time. I almost didn’t buy it because of the price. (Fourteen dollars at my local record shop!) I’m trying to come to grips with the increasing prices of records (even used ones, jeez!). Anyway, attitude-laden punk rock’n’roll. Opening track “If the Shit Fits” probably best sums up OBN IIIs. “New Dark Age” is Mr. OBN III’s homage to Iggy Pop. Production is lo-fi but you can tell the band is competent and also spent time and effort recording the songs. I really dig the bass tone but it sometimes gets a little lost in the mix. OBN III himself is a prolific man, doing time with The Bad Sports, John Wesley Coleman, and probably others. I hope to see this band live sometime soon.
