Jack Dalrymple has cultivated a near legendary status with his involvement in One Man Army, Swingin' Utters, Dead To Me, and The Revolts. Of course, few musicians in punk rock possess a calling card like Jack's velvety vocals, but his songwriting and guitar work are just as renowned. All three talents are on full display in Jack's latest endeavor Toy guitar. Filled out by Miles Peck, Rosie Gonce and Paul Oxborrow, all outstanding musicians in their own right, Toy guitar churns out a hyper-elevated level of garage rock. Based on the raw fuzz of '70s proto-punk and complemented by intricate guitar leads, unbelievably hook laden melodies, and captivating lead and backing vocals, Toy guitar's ultra-stylized sound even incorporates elements of surf, '60s soul and power pop. In This Mess is Toy guitar's debut full-length and first release on Fat Wreck Chords. From the Bowie-esque twinge of "Human Hyenas," to an attitude reminiscent of The Stooges on "In My Head," to the hypnotic vibe of "Roller Coasters," every track on In This Mess offers something unique without ever losing the album's pervasive jolt of energy.
