Formed in 2007, the Electric Mess are, admittedly, a personal fave of yer ol’ music editor. Fronted by the growling/yowling Esther Crow, the quintet’s sound is further defined by the wheezing, ’60s-retro-organ of Oweinama Biu, the Jeff Beck-ish pyrotechnics of guitarist Dan Crow, and the rave-up-having rhythm section of bassist Derek Davidson and drummer Alan J. Camlet. Aficionados of both the Nuggets and Pebbles compilations and the ’77 punk sound will find much to like with this band.
Dig what I mean:
