    The new one is definitely a step up from their debut, IMO.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    This is pretty cool. I loved Fugazi a lot back in my 80s hardcore days.

    After one complete listen: Outstanding.Assuming all tracks are Pirog compositions.Thing is, Pirog is more than a virtuoso player, he has the knack for writing good tunes.There are tons of gifted players out there, but all too few can pen a compelling, interesting song.Pirog has that gift, and along with Lally and Canty's instrumental abilities, make Messthetics a group to reckon with.IMO.

    Now i'd like to hear a live Messthetics disc; hear them stretch out and improvise on stage.

    Their Bandcamp page. Both their albums available.

    Now that I know about them, I'm looking forward to them coming to NYC or close enough to get to.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    They're in DC this Wednesday...with two great opening bands to boot. Really hoping I can make it; I have a show Tuesday night in Richmond so I may simply be too wiped out to make it. But, fingers crossed!
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    Thanks for the Bandcamp link. Impressed enough to order the latest.

    Go if you can. I was very happy to see them last year. I’d definitely go again if they come back through town.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Which is ridiculous because they aren't anything near a punk band. Even they know that.

    This is grasping something and pretending it is something else that they fervently wish was true (i.e. a Fugazi reunion). Silly. But good for the band anyway.
