Hey! Manchester presents Mock Tudors

Please note this is an 18+ Event

‘South Yorkshire’s answer to Buzzcocks meet The Sweet’, Mock Tudors‘ frenetic glam infused garage-punk oozed from the basement of Delicious Clam in Sheffield in January of 2022. Since then the band have released a set of EP’s alongside a bootleg LP, headline toured extensively, supported the likes of The Bug Club and The Futureheads, and played live in session twice for BBC 6 Music. With songs about everything from domestic recycling politics (Bin Day), to a PTA meeting gone awry (Nutbush Coffee Morning), Mock Tudors write it, so you don’t have to.

 

September 2023 saw the Tudors mini LP I AM BOZO – recorded in a matter of days in their rehearsal room and mixed by the band the week after. With nods to the best new-wave (The Shake, Distraction Alarm), sludgy garage (Two Sugars) straight up Ramones Punk (Bozo) and creep-tinged glam (No. 1 Fan) the EP explores sounds that drip with the legacy of pub rock through the ages.

 

With rumblings of a new album on the horizon, the band’s truly DIY approach sees them creating everything in-house, from music videos and artwork to handmade leather and ceramic merchandise. The band also act as their own private booking agent and tour manager under the guise of D.A.D. management with a long stint on the road due this September. This steam and ale fuelled outfit is a semi-professional Tudor cottage industry… just don’t tell the Lord of the manor.
