Fronted by Seattle Industrial scene veteran musician Wesley Rogers, Mixed Messages has only officially been a band since early 2012. Before that, while he and guitarists Nicklos Frank and Dimurea Alpha played for other acts over the years (all were in Bell's Theorum, Coitus, and Obscure Nerve at turns) the music that is now being performed and recorded was being quietly and semi-privately produced and recorded by Rogers as a sort of audio/video diary or sketch book that was more of a pipe dream than anything solid. In 2011, Rogers briefly played drums for Prehumanity before he was encouraged by the frontman of that band (Alexander Harris) to work on his own music, and even lent his hand to playing synth for the first two live Mixed Messages shows (during the last of which, the gorgeous and talented Sharon Collier joined her man on stage for the first time). After that show, Harris moved to California and recommended mutual friend/Prehumanity video synth/key player Nick McCoy to take his place. McCoy took the opportunity and the rest as they say....is in progress. Since then, the band continues to develop, and expand it's sound.....it is doing well as it does what it can to slash and hack it's way into the Seattle music scene as a band that is often described as everything from "cock rock bullshit noise" to "fucking genius", and both arguments are valid. Whether they bomb or blow your mind, one thing is certain, you will never get bored at a Mixed Messages show. Wesley is often described as a hurricane of chaos with the stealth of a ninja. Things will be broken, blood will likely spill, holy books will be annihilated, alcohol consumed and sprayed in equal amounts. You will get the last bit of VHS tape out of your clothing just in time to go to their next show.
