THE OWEN GUNS release single and video ‘Out Of Time’ and announce EP 2 ‘Electric Boogaloo’, out on 6th May via Riot Records.
Aussie punk rock reprobates THE OWEN GUNS have released their new single and video ‘Out of Time’ via Riot Records/Golden Robot Records. It’s the second single from the upcoming release EP 2 Electric Boogaloo and is a pummelling old school rager spewing frustration at politicians who care more about profits than people. It’s a sonic slap in the face co-written by Adam Check of Toe to Toe/One Dollar Short.
Their first EP release, Violating Community Standards, came out in 2020 to rave reviews from their wives and girlfriends and they’ve been annoying people with their blend of politics, bad taste humour and social commentary ever since. EP 2 Electric Boogaloo, is out on 6th May 2021 on Riot Records/Golden Robot Records. Rejoice!
Electric Boogaloo was Recorded and Mixed by Geoff Mullard at RTN studios and mastered by Jason Fuller at Goatsound, It’s 7 tracks that 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.
