SICK THOUGHTS "Coming Over" 7inch

     On what seem to be their 100th release in the last year Sick Thoughts show no sign of slowing down soon. Masterminded by Baltimore, MD teenage Drew Owen, their songs explode with a lo-fi scuzz that splatters gooey filth over the high school halls. To cover up their tracks and keep from getting the blame of the malicious destruction the band plots a way of burning the building down.
     Because of the blown out sound and the age of the brain that is behind the bedlam the first couple of Reatards records gets bandied around often as a reference point. And sure, the adolescent ranting & raving and snotball rockin' does land them in the same camp but the late Jay isn't the only thing these malcontents have used to treat their burning itch.
     "Coming Over" blasts out of the speakers all overdriven and with enough scum to set a fire in the guts of the world's GG Allin fan. The guitar solo that sounds like it bound by barbed wire and then thrown down a hill of broken glass then comes along to aggrandize the point.
     Things then get spun up even more with "I Didn't Know" The song makes it point in less than a minute which is a good thing because it it went on any longer turntables may detonate. This record then wraps up with it's longest track, the almost two minute long "Remember", that answers the question "What if the Pagans made a single for Rip Off Records."
