This is going to be *the* thrasher for the books at Simon Sez this summer as we welcome Austin’s proto rock & roll teeth grinders, OBN IIIs on Saturday, July 6th, 2013! Led by front man Orville Neely, this Austin TX based band may be considered a Texas rock and roll super group, composed of members of the Strange Boys, A Giant Dog, and Bad Sports. And not that the band needs justification, but singles out on Matador Records, Tic Tac Totally, and Adult Swim’s (yes, that Adult Swim) Garage Swim compilation with Thee Oh Sees and King Tuff have helped OBN IIIs really kick the door in on a mainstream public consciousness.
^^Here’s my favorite jam by them. The recording quality and the guitars evoke this Exploding Hearts- lo-fi pop feel mixed with the gnarly eyed, straight forward proto rock reminiscent of Bon Scott era AC/DC. Every time it plays I imagine beer froth spiraling in fray over a sea of denim, pleather, and shards of broken green beer bottles gyrating with the primal chest bumping of the band’s kick and bass.
