6 Favourite Hot Messes By Moses Gunn Collective

Brissie pysch-rockers Moses Gunn Collective have this week released another rip-snorter of a track, Hot Mess and to celebrate the scintillating 2 minutes of glory, and their upcoming tour (deets below), the guys have picked for us their six favourite hot messes.

Hot Mess is a straight up love ballad. We’ve all loved a hot mess, or maybe even been a hot mess ourselves,” the messy outfit tells us. “Either way it’s this acceptance of the mess – and devotion to it – that pulls hardest on our heart strings.”

Check out their favourite people who make being a mess look good below, and give the new single a bloody spin and pre-order their upcoming album Mercy Mountain here will ya?

Jannis Joplin

“She could hold it down with the baddest bois and probably taught them most of what they knew. Big beautiful messy legend.”

Russell Brand

“A bit more subdued nowadays he was a hot mess of the highest degree in his prime. Handsome, brash and loose as a goose.”


Nina Simone

“Big mama don’t mess around! An absolute gem of hot and messy situations, famously demanding champagne, sausages and cocaine pre-show.”


Keith Richards

“The original hot mess. No one knew how to take it as good as keef and he’ll probably be the last human on earth.”


Cesira Aitkin (Jungle Giants)

“The ‘sass queen’ as she demands folk call her. Wild in appearance and nature this young fire cracker will surely become an Aussie legend in the hot n messy hall of fame.”

Ariel Pink

“The nasty little lover boy mess up that everyone loves to mess on. Just look at that dirty, loveable face.”
