Bite Me b/w Paralysed
  • "Bite Me" b/w "Paralysed"
Marvelous Mark, who played in the Toronto glammy pop band Marvelous Darlings (alongside Ben Cook of Fucked Up, Young Governor, and Yacht Club) has recently released his own solo effort, a two-song tape via Cook's Bad Actors label. Today's 12 O'Clock Track is the tape's A-side, "Bite Me," and I can't remember the last time I heard a song that had this much replay factor. It's a yearning slacker-rock anthem, incredibly indebted to the moody alt-rock of the Replacements. I've found myself obsessed with this track during the past few days, losing count of how many times I've repeated it. You can listen to it a few times for yourself—and check out the accompanying video—below.
