ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Mothers is the UK's only all mother band, playing their own original songs that celebrate the joys and frustrations of being a mum. Izzy, the drummer had the idea of forming the band after she had given birth to twin babies in December 2002. "Life was pretty crazy - escaping to play drums in Beth's cellar and forming an all-mum punk band seemed to make total sense". The band met regularly in Beth's cellar for a gestation period of exactly nine months before playing their first gig at the Victoria Inn, Derby in May 2004.

Reviews
People in the audience at The Mothers gigs have said "That was the best night out I have had in years" (a student) "The Mothers is the first rock music I have ever liked in my entire life. I felt really connected to the women in the band." (a mum) "That was excellent!!!! I am DEFINITELY not having any more children!" (a dad) "I could really relate to your songs as a dad. They were a fun look at being a parent" (a dad)

The Mothers' music has been described as "an intoxicating brew containing a measure of punk DIY, a dash of riot girl, a shot of mum rock and a twist of ska, all expertly blended together by 5 fantastic women. Best served live or chilled in the comfort of your own home. Probably the best mothers in the world!!" Nick Ratcliffe

"I have spent countless evening watching 4 pale boys hiding behind their instruments and haircuts delivering obvious chords and sixth form poetry with an absolute absence of charm and humour. The Mothers are the antithesis of this. These 5 women exude confidence, energy and wit and proudly sing and shout about real things without a trace of poe faced seriousness. And they actually look like they're enjoying themselves...as do the audience... as do the kids..." Paul Drury

The Guardian 26.05.04 Never Mind the Horlicks
"Conveyed in a rush of three chord blitzkriegs, the manifesto of punk band the Mothers is not quite what you would expect. For one thing, their name is literal: each of the five band members is a mum. And their lyrics are a comical antidote to much of punk's lexicon - a point appreciated by the audience at the band's debut show in Derby."
Derby Evening Telegraph 10.05.04 It's a City First for Punk Frock
"..rather than singing about anarchy in the UK, like 1970's punk rockers the Sex Pistols, the mums' original repertoire of self penned songs celebrate motherhood in all its glory, including burning the tea and battling with nits. Andy Sewell, landlord of the Victoria Inn said "I was delighted to let the Mothers perform here. Promoting new bands is extremely important to me. The women did a sterling job."
The Mothers recently took part in a festival for mums who rock in New York City, USA. called Mamapalooza.
