Biography

Formed in 2002 Mudlow are a four-piece band based in Brighton, England.
Inspired by fucked-up blues, garage, country, striptease, klezmer… Stuff like Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Tom Waits and Morphine. Featuring guitar, bass, assorted brass, drums and percussion, the sound is dirty as the swamp that spawned it and sexy as hell.

Mudlow present their self released album Welcome to Mudlow Country. Characters, stories and landmarks combine, offering snap-shots of a seedy backwater town and its sleazy, often murderous inhabitants. Pulp crime writers like James Lee Burke and James Ellroy feed the noir imagery and the twisted humour of filmmakers like David Lynch and Jim Jarmusch is never far away. Also key to the Mudlow aesthetic is the art of the movie soundtrack and they have contributed music to a number of filmmakers projects.
Paul and Tobias of Mudlow have recently worked with Barry Adamson on his latest album 'Back to the Cat'.

Mudlow have gigged extensively in the U.K. and abroad. They have played with such acts as Seasick Steve, Robert Love (Alabama 3), The Popes, Sandy Dillon, The Detroit Cobras and Bob Log III. They have headlined at The Spitz, London, the Open House Festival in Belfast, NI, were one of only two UK acts invited to play at 2008's Deep Blues Festival in Minneapolis US, and have performed live radio sessions for BBC Southern and Joe Cushleys show on Resonance FM in London.
