Mopey Mumble Mouse

I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with local crazy art-rockers Mopey Mumble Mouse yesterday at the now sketchiest bar in town Roxxy's, after "The Musician's Bar" closed down they proudly reclaimed their throne. Mopey Mumble Mouse has been around for what seems a dogs age, I remember them starting out back in 2005 at that very same bar (four normal years is at least the equivalent of 25 rock band years in St John's noise rock) and they are just as crazy as ever.
The nicest bunch of dudes, they've had a rotating roster of members with the core group of Curtis Kilfoy, Bart Pierson, and Tom Davis remaining constant. They certainly bring the intensity to their unique messages. Be sure to download some of their tunes from their website (their new christmas song "Hungry for Bricks" is particularly awesome). Here is a mega mega grainy video I I took of them last night (be sure to watch to the end for a special reward)
