The Mess Hall - Notes From A Ceiling (2005)

front image

Sydney-based 'The Mess Hall' is a two-piece drums and guitar combo, they bring a kind of raw, edgy bluesy rock. The band consists of Jed Kurzel (vocals/guitar) and Cec Condon (drums/vocals). 'Notes From a Ceiling' was their third offer, it's an impressive album and suprisingly is the density of the sound that's given by such a two-piece band, danceable beats (listen to Disco1 or Disco2), a fuzzy guitar and reverb plastered cymbals varied with simple acoustic guitar and a lonely voice, yep, this cocktail I will not refuse. The Mess Hall is an outstanding band, a gritty down to earth garage/blues rock band and one of my favorites, that's for sure. Enjoy.
