About Mother Mooch
Mother Mooch are a five piece Fuzz Rock band from Dublin, Ireland.
Their sound has been likened to Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, PJ Harvey and “Alice in Chains with a female singer”, with songs described as having “enough hooks to fill a fisherman’s basket”. Taking their name from a misheard Black Sabbath lyric and their inspiration from a wide range of rock and punk acts from the 1970s, through 90’s grunge, alternative and desert/stoner rock right up to the current heavy psyche 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 a storming set at Electric Picnic’s Oxjam Stage. Their only non-festival appearance of the summer was opening for former QOTSA/Kyuss legend Nick Oliveri for the second year running.
Since the release of their EP/Demo “Preludes” in March, they have been attracting fans from around the globe – UK, US, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium, France and more.
In July 2015 Mother Mooch's song "Into The Water" was selected by seminal underground website Doomed & Stoned.com for inclusion on their latest compilation album "The Enchanter's Ball", which highlights the rise of female-fronted heavy rock bands from around the world.
Their debut album Nocturnes will be released in November 2015
