The Messies were formed in the spring of 2003 by Kelly Kidd, who hails from the small farming town of Foley, Minnesota and Thomas Gallmeier, a drummer from Germany, thinking that after having played all over the world, this was his best chance to trade in his lederhosen for a shot at the big time. Kelly had already been beating the Hollywood streets as a singer/songwriter and once persuaded a record label to sign him. Shortly after, the deal went bust and Kelly returned to selling sun block and swimsuits. Realizing his own life and career were a mess, he once again set out to rock the world.

• UCLA radio features the messies on their radio show and puts their songs “Genius” and “Never Ending Happy Ending” from their second CD, Life Gets Meaner (2006), still entirely written and produced by Gallmeier/Kidd, in rotation.

Great Pop-Punk - pleasantly unique take on life!
With a record this good, the only thing that does surprise me is why arn't they on an MTV loving major?......

Awesome
I was surprised at how much I liked the music. I listen to it all the time and I can't wait for their new one.
AWESOME band...GREAT cd.

Smart and fun with a great hook
Funny but not condesending lyrics keep it real against a pumped up pop beat. Kidds clear and boyish voice is perfect for letting the emotion in each song show through. If you can't find a song to identify with on this cd you aren't from this world.
