There is not a whole lot of info to be found on Dayton, OH’s Yardboss. Not even on the dark web. I did however end up with a cheap Ukranian hitman and a baggie with some kind of new designer drug that was being praised as ‘bath salts on steroids’ so I’m guessing it makes for a mellow high. What I did learn is that they like guitars and beer and that they have three songs. All of which can be heard on “We Wish We Were Dead ‘92”.

 

Opening track “Back In Baghdad” clocks in at a whopping 82 seconds, but what it lacks in length it more than makes up for in energy and sheer sense of fun. The band’s triple guitar attack gives the song a nice full sound and the band’s complete disregard for their own safety makes them sound like a more unpredictable FIDLAR. Next up we have “I Wish I Was Dead ’92,” which is somehow even better than the first one thanks to some catchy riffs and “1000 Beers” blends in nicely with the other two tracks with a bit of a post-punk vibe.

 

And just when you feel like you’ve been properly introduced to Yardboss’ sound, “We Wish We Were Dead ‘92” is over and done with and leaves you wanting more.

 

Track listing:

  1. Back From Baghdad
  2. I Wish I Was Dead '92
  3. 1000 Beers
