Following the release of their chaotic single “Stickers Of Brian,” which arrived via Wax Bodega Records earlier this year, Hot Mulligan has issued their latest offering, “End Eric Sparrow And The Life Of Him,” along with an accompanying music video.

Clocking in at just shy of 3 minutes, “End Eric Sparrow And The Life Of Him” shares the intensity and brevity of “Stickers Of Brian.” The track’s foundation opens with a groovy guitar riff that sets the stage for the building frustration conveyed through both the vocal delivery and the increasingly urgent instrumentation. As the song progresses, the layered vocals and escalating energy create a sense of mounting tension. The result is a powerful and cathartic climax.

“Eric Sparrow beat everyone’s ass in Tony Hawk, and this is what he has wrought,” vocalist Tades Sanville shares. “I am not a frontman but have been shoehorned into that role. Interviews where they ask the same questions over and over, strangers running up and touching me at shows, and tons of people dissecting everything they hear me say. Trading tight-knit local scenes for plastic and profiteers. I think a lot of the time that it would be better if my body stayed and didn’t think about it and enjoyed the limelight. Then the part that thinks and gets sad can just disappear. But then who can write?”
