Just one of those mad flavour combinations like Cola and Red Wine where jazz and punk go together perfectly. The Messthetics feature Fugazi alumni, they're an instrumental industrial punk band with plenty of funk who have teamed up with saxophonist James Brown Lewis to bring the fire and fury.
On their Impulse! debut album, Washington DC’s experimental jazz punk trio the Messthetics (drummer Brendan Canty and Joe Lally of iconic punk band Fugazi, with guitarist Anthony Pirog) join forces with acclaimed jazz tenor saxophonist, composer and bandleader James Brandon Lewis. Together, they widen the reach of decisive instrumental music through their overlapping of jazz, punk, funk, aggression and innovation.
