I had no idea what to think when I pulled this out of the box. Between the cover and song titles: Who Shot Ya, Notorious Thugs and Somebody’s Gotta Die, anything could happen. Well, it’s three songs of super lo-fi, dirty punk rock and roll grit that at times seemed to pull influence from TRAGEDY and possibly EYEHATEGOD with the aggression of NAILS. I dig the style and enjoyed the songs, but a few things stood out that I wasn’t into. The sleeve was interesting, being printed on “tracing paper” and the 7″ was pressed on see though light purple, but the B side was blank. Wasted space is a huge pet peeve of mine and a little more info or a lyric sheet would have been nice. Other than that, I think it’s a really fun listen. And to top it off, I was surprised to see that it was Mastered by someone my wife and I lived with when we first moved to PDX: Brad Boatright at Audio Siege. Small world indeed. (Jake)
Only one very special person is going to get this package. That’s it. Here is the back story: There is a dude from Minneapolis named Ryan Bezerker. He comes over to Profane Existence to help stuff records. He also runs a d.i.y. tape/record label called Bezerker Records. When we had a bigger distro we use to trade with him all the time. Ryan’s roomate is into country music and loves Kenny Chesney. This bugs the shit out of Ryan. All he does when he’s at Profane is complain about how much he hates having to listen to Kenny Chesney when he is at home. So to mess with our good friend Ryan Bezerker we are offering three of his tapes 1) RELENTLESS APPROACH 2) EYE GOUGE & 3) BLACK COFFEE (Australia) all wrapped up together in a Kenny Chesney 2012 tour edition t-shirt. Sorry. I know everyone is gonna want this… especially for the shirt but it’s the only one we got. ORDER NOW!
