Overlooked Band: Dressy Bessy

I’ve always liked the band Dressy Bessy. I first became aware of them via a bootlegged Peel Session that I got my hands on. Naturally, I figured there were an English band that hadn’t made ityet in the US.

To my surprise, I learned that they are not English at all and come from Denver, Colorado. The early albums have a “beat group” sound that has morphed to a bit more of a standard rack sound. Just about all the songs are catchy as can be.

Here’s a video to giv eyou a feel for the band.
