Song For Zed 02:08
Hunting you has become my, Means to an end, I set out to destroy what, You defend.... I see nothing inside but, My own perplexity, Knowledge is not enough, They kill dead gods for me... I love to see them running, Moments of their death, And now I see you coming, Center of your breath... I see nothing inside but, My own perplexity, Knowledge is not enough, They kill dead gods for me... They kill dead gods...for me...

about

The band that is Chris Mess has a sound rooted in and inspired by original era glam, rock ‘n roll, and power pop aesthetics: A bit of loud Cheap Trick strut, with a smattering of absurdity and vocal craziness a la Queen, The Darkness, Ziggy-era David Bowie, and The Sweet. Highlights of the Chris Mess 2016 EP include:

• “Song for Zed” revisits and reshapes surreal dialog from the 1974 cult classic film “Zardoz” into a belated—and utterly unsolicited—glam-rock theme song, replete with 13-part “bohemian” voice harmonies.
• “Bong for Your Mom” takes a look at Seattle’s cannabis legalization landscape, through a musical filter The Sweet might employ.
• “Vitamin D” paints the ceiling of an insomniac’s bedroom with vivid hallucinations.
• A revved up “Suffragette City” tips the hat to the man with the snow white tan.

"Among the brightest new rock hopefuls is Chris Mess....70s-era glam with a hint of British glitter a la The Darkness and early Queen."

"Seattle glam-rockers…fronted by a creative genius who looks like a settled-down Hedwig."

"Overall, the CHRIS MESS EP is hands down one of the better things sent into the ROCK ‘N’ MAILBAG. The original songs show real promise and the band seems adept at blending their influences"

“Chris Mess deliver an EP that pays tribute to some of the great glam bands from yesteryear while not sounding dated.”
