This will be Mother Mooch’s first show of the year and will be presented by Mother Fuzzers ball and Overdrive with special guests Unkindness of Ravens will also play a full set.

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 line-up, 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 from their homeland of 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.

Support on the night comes from Unkindness of Ravens – Having evolved from Road Rash, a southern/stoner rock styled band formed in 2012, Unkindness of Ravens emerged in late 2015 with a new line up, a new musical direction and a debut album released through US label Dura Gesta Records. Traversing many different genres and styles and incorporating a large multitude of instruments, including ‘found sound’ and field recordings, the band have received national airplay on Irish radio shows dedicated to cutting edge experimental music and have received attention from people around the world attracted by their visual and musical portrayal of the duality of melancholy and beauty.
