THE OWEN GUNS dropped their latest EP Violating Community Standards in August last year and the controversial (albeit tongue in cheek) band caused quite a stir. ‘Out Of Time’ the follow up to previous single ‘Sick’ will be released on 6th April and is taken from their upcoming EP, EP 2 Electric Boogaloo which is out in late May on Riot Records/Golden Robot Records.
‘Out Of Time’, the second single from The Owen Guns EP 2 Electric Boogaloo, is a pummelling old-school hardcore track with raging vocals. It spews frustration at politicians who put profits before people and who seem to care more about the economy than their constituency. With blazing guitars and hammering drums, it’s a sonic slap in the face. It was co-written by Adam Check of Toe to Toe/One Dollar short.
EP 2 Electric Boogaloo was Recorded and Mixed by Geoff Mullard at RTN studios and mastered by Jason Fuller at Goatsound, It’s 7 tracks which range from furious to funny, blending old-school hardcore with sing along punk rock and adding a metal edge. Full of blazing solos and group choruses – there’s never a lull from the onslaught of punk rock yet the band even have time to show their “sensitive” side with a faithful cover of the Hard-ons Aussie punk classic Just Being With You. The guitar thrashes and wails, the bass and drums pound and the vocalist rants and raves at everything that annoys him. It’s an EP that shows the band in full flight. No prisoners taken, no fu**s given. It’s raw and raucous – just how punk should be.
