Mother Mooch are a five piece fuzzed out rock band from Dublin, Ireland. Taking their name from a misheard Black Sabbath lyric and their inspiration from a broad spectrum of grunge, alternative and desert/stoner rock, garage, punk and psychedelia: Mother Mooch is the amalgam of each member’s eclectic music tastes combined to form something entirely new.
After spending several years honing their line up, sound and live show, Mother Mooch shifted gears in 2015 releasing their debut EP and taking their first steps into Ireland's festival scene. Not only were they the band that kicked off the Making Waves Stage at Dublin's newest festival, Canalaphonic, they will also perform at this year's KnockanStockan Festival as part of the Abner Brown hosted Wishbone Stage and for the second time will be the opening act for former Kyuss/QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri's solo show.
Their debut album Nocturnes will be released in autumn 2015.
"Effortlessly cool... It's clear there are few bands with a brighter future in Dublin"
-Pure M Magazine
"Filled with fuzzy rock fueled guitar riffs and heavy drum beats Mother Mooch’s debut E.P certainly sets out to grab the attention with the slow grooving slither of ‘L.H.O.O.Q’ and blues-rock grit of ‘Sinners’. 7/10"
-The Last Mixed Tape
"An intriguing and strangely captivating collection of tracks which have a definite desert rock feel to them"
- Irish Metal Archive
"A rock power mainstay that should truly settle well with hard rock fans around the globe"
"As a debut EP goes, there is something about Mother Mooch that makes you want to hear a lot more from them and are definitely a band to watch out for"
