Interview!! Mammoth Mammoth
Title: Mount The Mountain
Label: Napalm Records
Release Date: 28th April 2017
The mighty Mammoth Mammoth return with “Mount the Mountain” ,and as with their previous releases the Band leave your mind wrecked ,and your body aching from the stomping debauched anthems contained therein.
These crazy dudes from Melbourne just get better and better, here we have eleven stoners, dirt fuelled rockers to get you fist punching the air as you embark on a psychedelic ,even punk fuelled adventure.
The final track will shock and surprise you, but more on that later! Opening with the title track these “Good Time Mammoth Mammoth Fuzzers” kick out some killer riffs and addictive lyrics to get you bouncing around the room while banging your head , Mikey Tuckers Vocals enthuse you, drawing you in, this is magnificent opener to a quite frankly a splendiferous Album from these good time Aussies. “Spellbound” has a spaced out synthetic that grinds into the room with gritty determination that doesn’t let up as the ever so catchy “Hole in The Head” rattles around your head for days and days.
“Kickin my Dog” fires up and boots the mutt in the backside as the rhythm section of Pete Bell on Bass and Frank Trobbiani on Drums lay down some body shaking tones combined with Ben Couzens guitar slinging , on this track you will pump your fists as the chorus gets belted out by Mikey. “Procrastination” grooves and schmoozes into your presence with its hard rocking delivery leading into my personal favourite on here “Sleepwalker” the huge Riffs continue to shake the foundations as these Aussies tickle your nerve endings with their deep and heavy moves.
The angst filled , and punky “Epitome” sparks into life and pogoing around the place , leading into“Hard Way Down” it kicks up the dirt , shrouding you in head shaking, bootylicious blues inspired riffs that kick up a desert storm! Try listening to this song without moving, its damn near impossible I tell ya! (Well same can be said for all the songs. In fact).
“Wild and Dead” and “Cold Liqour” are pure adrenaline junkies as the band take you to their world of debauched heavy stoner ecstasy, and oh what is this , a bonus track. err “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” yes, its true ,these crazy antipodeans have covered and pay homage to fellow country woman Kylie Minogue’s song, and it aint half bad! So, when is Kylie joining the Mammoth Mammoth Boys on tour!??!
To sum up this a cracking release that kicks ass! The guy’s head out on tour soon in mainland Europe catch em while you can for a night of Hard Rocking Dirt induced Biker Rawk!
