22 Jacks / Mess - Split 7"

ARTIST: 22 Jacks / Mess
TITLE: Split
LABEL: Last Beat Records
YEAR: 1997
PRESSING INFO: Only Pressed on clear green vinyl

I picked this up for $1 at Double Decker Records earlier in October during my trip to the Allentown records fair. I had heard 22 jacks before but I have never heard Mess before.

22 Jacks was a sort of super group. With members of The Breeders, Face To Face, Wax, The Adolescents, and Royal Crown Revue. Sounds like a damn fin line-up if you ask me

And Mess is actually Darlington, performing as Mess.

The 22 Jacks song is great, as always. The Mess side is good, but I'm not really a big fan of the song Five-O. Still a nice pop punk/power pop release.

I did some research and it seems this was only pressed on clear green vinyl. Not sure how many were pressed.

Mess changed their name to Darlington if you ever heard of them. Also 22 Jacks are one of my favorite bands (Wax was awesome too)
