Mongrel State / Bio

Moo is a rock band from Dublin, Ireland, incorporating a wide variety of influences from Cinematic Western Scores to rockabilly, Latin-American grooves and rock'n'roll. In the last two years, they've earned a reputation on the Irish scene for their impassioned, hi-octane live shows, leading Jackie Hayden (contributing editor of major Irish music magazine “Hot Press”) to label them “exuberant...rough, ready and raucous”.

More recently, State.ie placed them in the top 25 acts that played at Hard Working Class Heros 2012, saying: "If you like great music and energy that borders on menacing then this is the band for you. Combining a rootsy, rockabilly music with a rather abrasive vocal delivery and lyrics that absolutely insist on further listening, this band were unlike much else on display at this years showcase".

Moo are: Claudio Mercante (Vocals & Guitar), Darren Flynn (Bass & Vocals) and Mark Finlay (Drums & Vocals)

They all share a love of Johnny Cash, Brian Setzer, Enio Morricone and Heavy Trash-era John Spencer and have all played in a wide variety of bands (from Rock to Brazilian Reggae) and bring this experience to bear in their collaboration, bringing maturity to their work whilst still thinking outside the box.Moo are: Claudio Mercante (Vocals & Guitar), Darren Flynn (Bass & Vocals) and Mark Finlay (Drums & Vocals)
