They’ve tagged their sound as ‘Good-time-murder-fuzz’ – and it’s consequent effect as, ‘the sound that sometimes kills unicorns’ and ‘more awesome than God’s tits!’
The band suffered several setbacks before playing their first live show. Their launch venue, Cherry Bar burnt down, Singer Mikey Tucker was hospitalised after a brawl with a gang of hammer wielding thugs and Bassist and Guitarist Cuz and Gash survived a shoot-out in Melbourne strip club ‘Kittens, to name a few.
In the end their first live shows gained immediate media attention.Their physical, no-holds-barred approach and front man, Mikey Tucker’s reckless performances gained them an immediate and dedicated following. In that year they we’re voted among the top 5 live shows in Melbourne’s premier Newspaper, The Age Entertainment Guide.
Their first EP was released prior to any live shows proved popular in Europe and Australia with several tracks licensed to commercials and the feature film, ‘The Loved Ones“.
Their first video clip was immediately banned. It used 1970s European pornography and was pulled from youtube, myspace and facebook – but not before it had over 1 million views and probably as many complaints.
On the release of their third album, they we’re signed by European label Napalm Records who further released it worldwide to excellent reviews in November 2012.
Consequently MAMMOTH MAMMOTH have featured in dozens international Magazines like Rock Hard France and Germany, HEAVY MAGAZINE France and Metal Hammer magazine’s German, French and UK editions – in which they were voted in at number two for ‘album of the month’ in December 2012.
