In 1993, for a short period of time, there was a blues band fronted by Steve Webb, who was (and still is) a great guitar player/singer/song writer from Britain, with many years of experience from playing in the U.S.A... The band had a couple of gigs in Stockholm, playing Steve's own songs and some known blues/rock covers. The song from this video, called "International Mess" (version 1.0), was just a "test" that the band's keyboard player and composer Doru Apreotesei wanted to do, to "check" the audience's reaction to a quite "unusual" and different style of music. Doru felt, needed and wanted to come out and play something more original than most bands did at the time, in the rock clubs... This would become possible later with the band called "The Mess Doctors". (See separate videos and comments.) While this version of "International Mess" (which had just been rehearsed twice, not enough for such a complex tune - which was also composed in a hurry...) is quite jazzy, fusiony and bluesy, the next version (signed "The Mess Doctors") has a lot more attitude and rock feel... This may show that (good) music can be created in many ways... In fact, "The Mess Doctors", later made an "unplugged" version too. They played all the heavy songs in a complete different way with great results. (Se separate video and comments.) This Video is a collage of two amateur films made in two separate days at the "Gare du Sud" club in Stockholm. The quality is poor but it may be interesting to watch to and listen, anyway... Have fun!
