With a sound resembling a mixture of Radiohead and The Clash, Alien Space Kitchen is rocking the locals of New Mexico. Be prepared, these three are good. With Noelle on drums, T. Messal aka “Mess” on bass, and Dru on guitar you will be rocked. The band’s bio states they started as a duo when songwriter Dru Vaughter recruited Noelle to play drums and assist with vocals on a new recording project. The result was their award-winning debut album “Just A.S.K.” Although the original two were happy with their progress, what they truly desired was a power-trio configuration. They believed that with the addition of bass, the songs could bask in their full garage-rock glory. In 2013 good fortune shone upon A.S.K. when L.A. legend Messal came out of retirement to join the band. Mess has toured the world with critically acclaimed bands Flies on Fire, VOMF, and Vitamade. When asked why he decided to get back in the game, most often he says it is because of the music. Other times he says it was something in the water. The rest of the band doesn’t care why, they’re just glad he did.
The band member’s influences include X, The 13th Floor Elevators, The Music Machine, WITCH, The Replacements, Kid Congo, Ohio Players, and The Kinks, to name a few. The band is also influenced by outer space… here’s what may or may not be true about the individual members and alien abductions: Dru may have been abducted but has no recollections; Noelle has never been abducted and knows just why; Mess claims that he has been an abductee and has abducted a few himself. The triangulation of these differing experiences translates in musical terms like a time-bomb of the future. Check it out or check yourself in.
