From the backstreets of a small town in Merseyside, Messiahs are much more than your average indie band. Their ever-growing fan base has fallen for their modern take on 90’s flavoured swagger with huge choruses to match. Made up of Salty, Jamie Cook, Tranners and Liam Andrews I caught up with them to introduce them to you, our readers.
We’re Messiahs, 3 lads with some instruments, playing the type of music that we love, purely for the love of it. Based in St Helens, we met when John Lennon visited us separately in our dreams and asked us to meet up.
I’ll tell what we’re not. Were not Rock, Metal, Rap or Pop. And we’re not Space Jazz. We try our best not to draw too much from anything, coz you end up sounding like that band or artist then. The songs just fall out of the sky if you listen hard enough. Its true. As long as the song has passion, or swagger or soul well keep it. If its shit we bin it and move on.
Writing, recording, gigging, tryna pop our head above the radar and most importantly….enjoying it man.
Shit, Liverpool are top of the league.
Erm….ya lyrics can’t be too happy can they.
“I’ll paint you a picture, with the tears from my eyes” is from a song of our called ‘Higher Love’. Check it out.
A yellow submarine, we ain’t getting our trainers wet man.
We played St Helen’s rugby ground to 18,000 once. (Where we did get wet trainers) That was okay. I’d say the most enjoyable gigs are the little sweaty ones with good sound. Any in Manchester or Liverpool are good, coz its good night out innit…..Dream venue though….its gotta be Glasto, hasn’t it???
I think we as a band would all answer this differently. I’d probably say Oasis in 95/96 just for the massive after party.
Ahhh, man. I can’t do jokes. I’ll tell ya whats funny though… Scottish people swearing are fukin hilarious. They just swear with pure passion man. Let me think… Don’t trust atoms… They make everything up… See can’t do jokes.
All of it. There’s nothing better than being in a band.
Melodic. Swaggering. Anthems.
Love & Money.
Beatles or Stones? Beatles.
