21 years and over
Kevin, Brian, and Nate started a band. They needed a vocalist. Mizo offered to fill that role one drunken night. It worked until a night of sex drugs & Rock n' roll put Nate and Mizo into a feud, breaking up the band. They reunited another drunken night. Nate leaves the band. Fred came to the rescue with his mighty axe and once again Terror Alert was ready to rock. The story continues...
With fists in the air and legs akimbo, the drunk, cursing, costumed misfits of Hot Lips Messiah are clearly Chicago's punk-rock saviors, here to invigorate the spirit and deliver us from sin.
We lack the attention span of most bands which causes them to focus on a style of music. Ez Kebage was formed as an homage to the wicked farts of Phildo. Since then, we have been a melting pot of influences ranging from melodic to noisy, country to metal, fart to poop. We are always up for playing shows, as long as we can borrow your equipment (and sometimes your liquor).
Paul and Joel are working the bar on a Saturday night in March. Brahm joins them for a beer. After a couple, he points at Joel, "You play drums?" "Fa Sho." Joel replied. "And you play bass?" now pointing his finger at Paul. "Ya! what about it?" Paul says. "Well I play guitar, and the three of us are jamming at my place on Monday night!!" Brahm stated. "Cool." in chorus from Paul and Joel. 48 hours later Impossible Cork happened...
The story begins with Nate moving here from Michigan. After a few months or so hanging around with Brian, they were walking through a McDonalds parking lot, and caught sight nifty fellow by the name of Austin getting into a car. After a few minutes of conversation, the two were off in the car with him and his buddies to Chicago. Over a short period of a few weeks and through friends and their friends Nate and Brian were introduced to the other soon to be members Eric, Chris and John and Ebola 7 formed in about March of 2006, starting in our friend Amanda's garage. We started with a few practices and then ended up playing a show in Brian's garage in May, where we are now practicing and wasting our lives away. And they say you shouldn't get in a car with strangers? Good things tend to happen.
