It was back in 2013 that the Australian new wave quartet Drunk Mums were introduced and last featured – tomorrow they release the LP Urban Cowboy.
Even on recording it is discernible that Drunk Mums is a band to get to see live as the ten crumpled tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) come staggering in to the room borne on slurred guitar, which even after faffing around with multi-tracking and mastering can’t disguise the earthy, infectious, energy of the quartet.
The roughly thirty six minutes (over seven and a half minutes of which is contained in the closing song Ripper, with most songs reaching conclusion well within three minutes) LP merely asks the listener to clear space, turn up the volume and pogo to the blues-fused garage rock’n’roll.
My pick of the release being the third – Order From Chaos.
