For the last few years Phillip Tarr has been producing some of the most vile punk and noise music this country has never heard. Mess Folk is just the newest incarnation. As good as he is, the dude is a total outsider, so until recently his music has gone under the radar. But you can’t keep something this saucy a secret forever. What makes Mess Folk so fantastic is that he manages to be catchy and simple while at the same time sounding nasty as hell and completely shattered. Think GG Allen meets Tyvek and the Vivian Girls.
