MESSER from Münster, Germany are Hendrik, Pascal (also RITUAL), Pogo (also DRAMAMINE, former PRESS GANG) and Philipp (also RITUAL). Four completely different socialised individuals whose intersection is easy to name: Punk. Now it would be too simple to call them a punkband. Sure, they are. But though they move and live out in that genre they find inspiration in all kinds of musical genres, culture- and artforms including literature, film or painting.
Pointy, sharp and precise like a knife, here‘s three bleak tracks of elaborate punk music – definitely more reasonable to listen to instead of writing about it! You can better feel what MESSER is all about.
„Rückfall ins Fieber“-Remix by Florian Pühs (Ex-HERPES, Ex-SURF NAZIS MUST DIE …)
Cover art done by Hendrik Otremba.
