Its early March 2020 and Bristol based rock band Mother Vulture are really moving, fresh off hometown supports with Michael Monroe, Ugly Kid Joe and Bokassa, they’ve just played their 2nd only show in London to rapturous reviews (see below) and booked a bunch of Summer festivals including headlining the Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man so it’s time to start planning the release of their debut album.
And then the world kinda stopped. They retreated to Bristol, some to key worker jobs, some to no jobs, and had a
think. Live is where they’d built their rep and back in September ’19 they’d been invited to Rockfield Studios in
Monmouth to record a session for the Abbey Road Institute France. They recorded the entire session completely live,
just pressed record and didn’t hold back, they performed a true MV show. With no gigs meaning no income, all of the band’s remaining money have gone into producing 100 limited edition vinyl copies of this session, produced, mixed and mastered by the band. It’s rough and ready and not without its imperfections but they believe it most accurately represents what it’s like to experience their live sound and energy. The album features 5 previously released tracks & 6 new tracks and is available to pre-order from www.mothervulture.uk Each vinyl ordered will be personalised / numbered, vinyl and digital purchases will also include an extended version of the album, not available through streaming. At a time where live music is virtually non-existent this a vital reminder of what’s on the other side of this.
