Odlaw is 5 piece rock band from Perth, Western Australia, fronted by me, Mark Neal. I’m your friendly music obsessed industry shithead. I’ve spent most of my life floating between other bands with better songwriters and found myself somewhere on the outskirts of the music industry being the frontman in a band that are too good for me.
Like a dark cloud formation slowly moving over your friendly family picnic, Regret City sets in and drowns out any thought of happiness. I regret everything.. seriously fucking everything.. all the good stuff I’ve done, all the bad stuff I’ve done, all the shit I did and didn’t say. It all eats at me on a regular basis. More recently I found being busy is a great distraction, and when that doesn’t work writing songs about my irritations seems too.
That’s what this album is. 12 tracks of me trying to help myself with support from a bunch of fucking legends. Maybe that’s what life is? Fuck life! I already regret this press release.
