Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Mumm-Ra release their debut album, These Things Move In Threes, through Columbia Records on May 28th 2007.
The 11-track album, featuring former singles Out Of The Question, Song B & What Would Steve Do? was produced by the legendary producer Youth in Spain during the autumn of 2006.
The album will be preceded by a single, She's Got You High, which is set for release on May 14th 2007.
Whats that coming over the hill? Its a band with all the primary colour and frivolity of their ill-fitting, novelty name-tag (for those loyal to the other channel, Mumm-Ra was the undead ever-living nemesis of cartoon mutants the Thundercats), thats what. Fresh-faced to the core and melodically virginal, they might shake their fists like harder-shelled japesters The Automatic, but channel their not inconsequential enthusiasm into the moisturised mainstream skin of bands like Feeder and Snow Patrol. They cut an interesting figure even if their ambition never quite solidifies into the vast shapes it wants to. The meek vocals are pushed to their limits and endear through their eagerness, evoking Richard Archer from Hard-Fi without the hangover or the wide-eyed folly of a pre-broadsheet Damon Albarn. "Song B", in a clear reference to Blurs most explosive moment, and "Out of the Question", rattling along like a mockney Wannadies, have them trying to flex their muscle, though they find more comfortable success with skinny-fit melodies of "Shes Got You High" and "What Would Steve Do?", carried through on a light breeze. They mine the vaults of late-90s fringe Britpop, bands like Ooberman and The Supernaturals, and like them they throw enough paint up at the speaker to keep things colourful at the very least. - - James BerrySee all Product Description

Packed full of smart hooks, top tracks and quirkiness, I'd love them to do a Kaiser chiefs.
Very surprised they left out - "when the lights go out" (Out of the question b-side) - An acoustic track that shows off Noo's skills as a songwriter so well its crazy. (at least I think its Noo that writes) Either way this band is way talented.
Saw them live again in Bristol Thekla about 2 weeks ago and they were still on form; And I think the single "she's got you high" has been used by HSBC for an advert (a low key affair) if that's not a thumbs up by "the man" then hey...
I hope this band gets the recognition they deserve.
(I wish you well Mumm-Ra)

What Would Steve Do?
The rest of the album is just as brilliant but the above are all so energetic and vibrant they make me excited about the band. I can hardly wait for the second album. The question is will it be a 'Second Coming' or a 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'? I certainly hope things can only get better from my icons
The album has a very fresh british sound and the quality of the instrumentals is set well above anything around at the moment.
I cannot recommend this album enough!...also go see them live, their shows are so energetic and lively....
The band has also been around for ages and are well due a big break...
