Loud, sweaty, sweet rock n roll- Miesha & The Spanks are two of Calgary AB's busiest road junkies. Miesha Louie (guitar/vox) and Sean Hamilton’s (drums) brand of garage rock sits somewhere between the timeless jam of The Runaways and scrappiness of The Gits, with just enough influence from 50s girl-group romanticism to catch a case of pop sensibility. They’re explosive together on stage, and their upcoming album ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ produced by Paul Rawson and Danny Farrant (of The Buzzcocks) promises to put that on record. Miesha & The Spanks are at their best spilling out of their van and onto a stage after a real long drive.
It was a chance meeting with Danny Farrant at Sled Island Music Festival that led to their collaboration, first with 'Stranger EP,' cited by Mike Bell (Calgary Herald) as “representing Miesha and The Spanks at their most polished and more accessible." The EP sets the stage for ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ offering a taste of what’s still to come: ten songs with the impassioned songwriting fans are used to, but imbued with a new visceral energy and unbridled electricity.
Miesha & The Spanks have toured coast to coast many times, with additional performances at NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Sled Island, Canadian Music Week, and BreakOut West. They have shared the stage with Queens of The Stone Age, Death From Above 1979, Hot Snakes, Nashville Pussy, Imperial State Electric, Pack AD, C’mon, Bison BC, Hot Hot Heat and many more amazing bands.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
