Hiss Golden Messenger Dates


HGM by Terri Loewenthal
Hiss Golden Messenger emerged from the ashes of beloved SF cult rock band The Court and Spark in 2006-2007. While largely dormant since main Messenger Mike Taylor moved back East, the band is currently performing a few shows in Philadelphia, New York, Brooklyn and Bovina, NY. A deliciously slippery mix of Quicksilver Messenger Service San Fran style pysch, warm reggae one-drop, long haired folk and a number of other inviting but hard-to-pin down flavors, Hiss Golden Messenger is an experience worth having.

HGM's first full-length record, Country Hai East Cotton will be released quite soon. In the meantime, they will have shirts (based on Bob Welch-era Fleetwood Mac t-shirts, "except of lower quality," jokes the band) and a second pressing of their live performance in Big Sur from 2007 at fire-sale prices at these shows. They will also be taping a performance soon with Irene Trudel for later broadcast on WFMU. Hey, any band nifty enough to lure The Mother Hips' Tim Bluhm into joining the band as guitarist and back-up vocalist while they were in SF is pretty cool, just on principle, right? Spread the good word, dial into the Hiss.
