Chris Mess “In Every Disaster” 2022 EP Review

“‘In Every Disaster’ is a fine EP, which grooves and struts in Bolanesque fashion…great playing and singing and well-written songs. With summer just around the corner, this is a perfect EP to go with hot, sunny days and neon-lit summer nights, and fans of power-pop and glam would do well to give this an airing. Buy with confidence!” – BallroomBlitzsManAtTheBack.com, March 2022

Chris Mess “In Every Disaster” 2022 EP Review

“The band goes all out with their rock ‘n’ roll anthems…they have a giant sound on this EP. With catchy riffs and melodies, the band tips their hat to acts like The Darkness, Queen, David Bowie…give this a spin today!” – DivideAndConquerMusic.com, March 2022


Official Metal Sludge review: “The Chris Mess EP”

“Among the brightest new rock hopefuls is Chris Mess, who has a put out a self-titled CD that leans toward 70s-era glam with a hint of British glitter…the production is absolutely sparkling — include 13-part harmonies on “centerpiece” track “Song For Zed” that recalls the awesome splendor of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” – Gerry Gittleson, METALSLUDGE.tv, June 2016

About Chris Mess:

Chris Mess has a sound rooted in original-era glam rock ‘n’ roll, indie, and power pop: There’s a smattering of drama, absurdity, and vocal craziness a la Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie, The Sweet, and Cheap Trick, with a through line to neo glam icons such as The Darkness and The Struts. The band also sidles up to the bar alongside current ‘New Wave of Classic Rock acts. Chris Mess has received airplay on indie radio worldwide, including Radio Free Brooklyn, Seattle’s KEXP, Steve Vincent’s Mystery City on Scotland Rocks Radio, Dandy’s Stardust Dive, and others.

About the 2024 Glitter EP:

The Glitter EP is a neon-lit, nuanced, and layered rock ‘n’ roll creation, mixing original era glam rock influences, with hard rock flavors from the 70’s and 80’s through to today. Vintage instruments and musical quotes weave in and around contemporary song craft and soundscapes. While some songs serve fresh takes on universal themes, others celebrate the rock ‘n’ roll life, all up. As is the Chris Mess way, all songs are infused with dive-bar-sized shots of rock ‘n’ roll elation…and humour. Consume irresponsibly, at ridiculous volume levels! Also, don’t miss the fantastical music video for the first single, “Dandy’s”.
