Fuzz Rock upstarts Mother Mooch have announced their first show of the year at Workmans Club on Friday May 27th, presented by Mother Fuzzers Ball & Overdrive. Special guests Unkindness of Ravens – Dark Post Rock from Tipperary/Offaly – will also play a full set on the night.
Mother Mooch are a five piece Fuzz Rock band from Dublin. Taking their name from a misheard Black Sabbath lyric and their inspiration from a wide range of rock and punk acts from the 70s, through grunge, alternative and desert/stoner rock right up to the current heavy psych scene: Mother Mooch is the amalgam of each member’s eclectic music tastes combined to form something uniquely their own.
After spending several years honing their lineup, sound and live show, Mother Mooch shifted gears in 2015 taking their first steps into Ireland’s festival scene with performances at Canalaphonic, KnockanStockan and Electric Picnic in addition to supporting Kyuss/QotSA legend Nick Oliveri for the second time and playing to an ever increasing audience at their self promoted Dublin shows. Their debut EP “Preludes”, released in March 2015, began attracting fans from around the globe and brought them to the attention of national and international music media. Their fully self produced debut album “Nocturnes” was released on Friday 13th November 2015 and has received glowing reviews both at home (Hot Press Magazine, GoldenPlec, Pure M, Metal Ireland) and throughout the international heavy underground (Doomed & Stoned (US), More Fuzz (FR), Outlaws of the Sun (UK) & more). Songs from the album have featured on radio stations, podcasts, web shows and youtube channels throughout Ireland, Europe and the US.
Mother Mooch are set to release a vinyl edition of “Nocturnes” through German label Krauted Mind Records in summer 2016, with Irish, UK and European shows later in the year in support of the album. Irish festival dates for summer 2016 will shortly be announced. The release of their darkly cinematic “Hive Mind” official video – shot on location in Donadea Forest Park, Kildare – is imminent.
