Mark McGuire makes the rest of us feel lackadaisical by releasing yet another album on Editions Mego

Mark McGuire makes me feel like a lazy bum — which I am for the most part, but for real, Mark, chill out a little bit, quit making the rest of us feel so bad about our lack of productivity. The guy is a couple years my junior and has already released a slew of CD-Rs and tapes to measure up to almost a lifetime’s worth of musical accomplishment. I, for one, have given up on trying to keep up with all the musical fuzz he’s putting out there, because I’m lazy. Luckily for me (and my fellow lazy asses), Emeralds’ Mark McGuire will be releasing a compilation album comprised of rare and hard-to-find tracks from cassette and CD-R releases throughout the past few years.

A Young Person’s Guide to Mark McGuire will be released by Editions Mego on May 10 and was compiled by the label’s frontman Peter “Pita” Rehberg. As an added bonus to you drone nerds out there, Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) fame will be doing the design and layout duties for the release. With all that said, I’m now going to consider doing something worthwhile with my life, but probably won’t.
