Garage punks Moot release their new single ‘I Hate Hippies’ on Riot Records.
Moot’s music is fast and their lyrics sharp. No subject is above pulling down. A band that knows their punters have opinions, a sense of humour, understand sarcasm and are just as frustrated as they are at what is going on.
‘I Hate Hippies’ is the band’s comment on the image-conscious hipster. The one that puts on the “I’m in touch with the earth and wellness” schtick, but really, it’s just mummy and daddy financing a self-absorbed arrogant hypocrite.
Six years and many gigs later, after hitting the pubs and clubs and from strong crowds to empty rooms across the breadth of Australia, Moot not only did not expect to last, they expected to be shut down within three songs of their first ever set. It didn’t happen that way and they have become a tight four-piece rock band in the spirit of the bands they grew up with: The Stooges, MC5, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Radio Birdman etc.
