“Macabre and brilliant…if you don’t think that’s an exciting new sound then you must be listening to far better stuff than me.”
Joey Page, Fubar Radio
“Raw, energetic, confident and burning. Frank DIY post punk emotions from the street. Direct and honest and loud!”
Turn Up The Volume – 5 MUST HEAR albums review
“Bringing you the sounds of electro-grunge that could easily be described as elegant punk” – Sound & Motion Magazine
Formed in 2017, East London quartet MESS have been crafting powerfully distorted, female fronted guitar rock. The sound of the band is inspired by many facets of life like empowerment, rebellious outbursts and the feeling you get when you’ve just had enough. The band’s stockpile of songs pay homage to music that will make you want to dance, sing loud and crowdsurf, like hard rock, grunge, punk and garage. This is MESS – an all girl band apart from the boys.
After the live music there’ll be a free entry club night QUEER – Friday 8th March till 2.30am!
