SICK THOUGHTS - Last Beat Of Death LP
"Fuck you, get out of my face," goes the central verse in Drew Owen's 80-second track "G.O.O.M.F". This Baltimore dude has put out a ton of music this year, but the formula hasn't failed him on his new Sick Thoughts tape Last Beat of Death (out now on the new Boston tape label Mina's World). The eight-song tape actually retreads some of the same stuff he offered on his great album Terminal Teen Age, but this time, he gets a little more intense, bashing out "I Don't Relate" with goblin vocals and breakneck speeds. This is yet another brick of evidence to add to Owen's scummy rock'n'roll hot streak. Long may he reign.
