O’messy Life Little Vehicles

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide no escape from reality.” (Bohemian Rhapsody Queen 1975)

Last week I was watching Wayne’s World (again!!!) and when the scene came on when they are in the car rocking out to Bohemian Rhapsody I thought of O’Messy Life. Why? Their new single sounds nothing like it. I know, but the mood, the length and the way it sounds like 3 or 4 different songs fighting to be heard reminds me of Queen’s classic track. At 6 minutes and 39 seconds long it has a lot of time to fill up but with so many different things going on it fills the time easily. Making me press repeat as soon as it is finished so I can listen to it again. The vocals remind me of the Killers, the lyrics a mix of The Men They couldn’t Hang and The Pogues. All topped off with the Broken Family Band. O’Messy Life are a hotchpotch of ideas all demanding to be heard and I’m sure with songs like this, and the “B” side “Space Holiday”, they will be heard by a bigger audience very soon.

This single is brought to you by our friends at Tiny Lights Recordings and again we have a copy to offer in a fantastic competition. To win the CD plus a sticker and badge just answer this easy question either on our Facebook page, as a twitter tweet or an e-mail (peter@thenorthernline.com). As always first past the post gets it. “O’Messy Life often play backing band to one of our favourites but who is it?”

Thanks to Paul at Tiny Lights and to O’Messy Life for making such a wonderful noise.
