Moutpiece take over The International Bar to launch their debut album with an all day gig this Saturday.
A fiery collective of absurdity and madness, rolled into a rock’n’roll machine of power. Moutpiece formed as a three piece around the dawn of the new millennium in order to right many of the then current wrongs on the Dublin rock scene. Namely a lack of high octane punk rock and roll. Loud, fast, obnoxious bursts of guitar fuelled mayhem, the band was formed by Gazzy Wazzy of Dublin’s Spacehopper, The Yank of the country that dare not speak its name and Tommy Trousers whose many musical accomplishments warrant too much space to be afforded here. Gigs and tours followed. As did the addition of second guitarist Conzo, fresh off a very very long stint in Female Hercules. Armed with a blistering bag of riffs and a voracious thirst for everything, they set off on the road. Tours of Holland, Ireland and festival appearances ensued and Moutpiece was brought to the masses, who enjoyed it immensely.
The debut album of instant rock classics has been awaiting a launch to propel it into the annals of punk history. The time has come stop messing and release the damned thing. Recorded, mixed and mastered by the Eoin Whitfield and James Eager in the Hive Studios in Kilcoole Co. Wicklow, it will soon be a must have in every music fanatic’s collection.
The album will be officially launched on Saturday 27th September, upstairs in The International Bar on Wicklow street, Dublin 2. It will be an all day affair. Bands kick off at 2 in the afternoon and run until 6. Then the party will move down to the basement for the Moutpiece DJ’s to take turns on the wheels of steel till close.
Come early, stay late.
Plaing on the day are The Evil Knievals ("Dirty Rock and Roll featuring Tommy from Estel on drums, a ginger haired fellow on bass, and a man in an american cop uniform that plays a mean flying V on geetar") and Excuses ("Gut splattering punk rock. Fronted by one of the best front men front manning in Ireland today. Trashy and thrashy. A rare appearance by Sligo’s finest".
