‘Mark On You’ shifts gears to the dark side of an OBN IIIs curveball. It’s still got a rock ‘n’ roll center, snot for miles, and of course the balls-out delivery service. But this one conjures a sadistic presence that pushes down HARD on OBN IIIs’ vehicle, forcing eruptions of black smoke from the tune. It comes off something like Mentally Ill’s ‘Gacy’s Place’ doing its thing waaaaay over on the ‘rock’ end of punk rock. Anyway, this song will make your turntable smell like battery acid, blood, and beer after a couple spins. The other B-side (double B-side, bitch!), ‘Heavy Heart,’ is the rager though. With an upbeat, simple wallop, it’s reminiscent of a drunken, Texas-tinged Ivy Green. Which keeps coming up as often as these dudes club me over the head lately. Much more in-line with their other output so far, and a perfect compliment to the other B-side.
