Mischief Brew
Mischief Brew
Philly anarcho-punk/folk troubadours Mischief Brew celebrate their 15th year not with a champagne toast, but by barreling into the bar and slamming down “This Is Not For Children,” their fourth studio album out 5/23 on Alternative Tentacles. Created in their home city at Permanent Hearing Damage Studios by Steve Roche – who recorded many of their early releases including “Songs From Under The Sink” – it breathes and bleeds a tough spirit that could only have been born in the streets, bars, and empty warehouses of Philadelphia. Mischief Brew has always paid tribute to Crass-era peace punk bands as much as the likes of The Pogues, New Model Army, and Tom Waits. However, perhaps their greatest influence here is their own city. While “The Stone Operation” took you everywhere from Dallas to Paris to Nevada City to Romania, “This Is Not For Children” hunkers down at a dive bar around the corner from the practice space, with all the collected stories from the road, and decides that Philly, despite its ups and downs, will always be home.
The Holy Mess
The Holy Mess
A fashion-crust Pollack, a dude that looks like if Ben Franklin was young and handsome, a drunken 90lb weakling and a hair-farming little guy that looks like he either parties with the Beastie Boys or the Arab Spring walk into a bar. Sounds like the start of a pretty good joke right? Well, this joke calls itself the Holy Mess and chances are that it walks into a bar, breaks a bunch of things, insults a few people, angrily grumbles and then melts your dick right off your pelvis with their sloppily aggressive take on the already sloppy and aggressive pop punk sound popularized by bands like Dillinger 4 and Lifetime. The punchline of the joke is that the Holy Mess don't give a fuck on a level so profound that when I asked them some history so I could write this bio I just got a message back that said "if that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass." Yet somehow, they have managed to crank out a modern masterpiece of booze soaked, regret fueled bangers that they've foolishly titled "Cande Ru Las Degas" and even more foolishly left up to the flying monkeys over at Red Scare Industries to disseminate to the masses, and said dissemination will commence August 2012, so hold onto your fancy opera glasses, grandpa. -Brendan Kelly
