Mother's Children

Mastering the new Mother’s Children LP “Lemon” on Taken By Surprise Records, Mammoth Cave Recording Co., Resurrection Records, and SP Records.

Read what they said about their ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH EP

“Canada seems to be the new fertile ground for smashing powerpop. MOTHER’S CHILDREN hail from Ottawa, the same place as great bands like SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND (who they share a member with), WHITE WIRES and many others are from and keep making me go GAGA. This 6 track 12” is the follow up to their well received THAT’S WHO! LP on DERANGED. Dirk Klotzbach from OX put it this way (I fully agree!):
I really hope that you all followed my call up from OX # 92 in the meanwhile and have bought yourself a copy of MOTHER`S CHILDREN “That´s Who” Debut LP. So just to make it clear once again, there is no excuse ! The same as great as mentioned LP is this follow-up 12″ from the Canadians. Power Pop Glam´n´Roll driven to perfection that should be spinning on your record player multiple times a day and that still is on a par with it´s musical archetypes. Take your personal hits from the first three Powerpearls Compilations add it up with the two episodes of Killed By Glam, listen to “Milk & Alcohol” and “She´s A Windup” by DR. FEELGOOD once again, don´t forget your BOYS, STIFFS and FAST CARS records and imagine you would be warped right back to the Seventies where you would be seeing all those bands live on stage, because this is the moment when you realize that you are dancing and beerspitting right in front of the stage of a MOTHER`S CHILDREN show. Maybe you´ll even meet Noddy Holder or Gary Holton there on your timewarp.””

 

Mastering another new 7″ for Mother’s Children.

They will also be on European tour throughout May with Mondo Ray, another wonderful band mastered here.

“Release-number THH006: Hot off the release of the highly praised “Are You Tough Enough?” Mini LP, comes 2 brand new Power Pop crunchers from MOTHER’S CHILDREN. Since the release of their 2010 debut LP “That’s Who”, we’ve seen MOTHER’S CHILDREN go from stomping Glam Rock, to bubblegum smacking Pop, to pub-rocking proto-Punk and back again without skipping a beat. On this teaser of a single, they achieve pure Pop perfection 1979-style, bringing up comparisons to 20/20, The Plimsouls, Twilley/Seymour, The Shoes, Stiv Bators, and Gary Valentine. Mother’s Children are coming out with a caliber Power Pop, unlike any other band in Canada right now, and they have all the amazing hooks, the brilliant harmonies, and the necessary skills to be the best in the business. MOTHER’S CHILDREN have toured U.S.A. and Canada with Paul Collins’ Beat, The Biters, and The Barreracudas, and In May 2012, just in time for their new single, they embark on their first European Tour with Germany’s Mondo Ray. TermBo sez: “Absolutely bursting with exuberant hooks, liberal sprinklings of glitter and power-pop with some actual power.”

This is the official tour-7inch for the MOTHER’S CHILDREN Euro-tour 2012 and it’s a co-release between Timmeheiehumme Records and P.Trash Records. 500 copies have been pressed: 250 pieces green vinyl (Timmeheiehumme edition) and 250 pieces clear vinyl (P.Trash edition). Fingerlickin’ goooooood”

TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS

Oh Canaduh, you still make me shake my broken bones with a deadly dose of your highly infectious Powerpop-Glam´N´Roll combining only the best songs of the first three Powerpearls Compilation Volumes with barroom boppers like “Milk & Alcohol” or “She´s A Windup” by DR. FEELFGOOD.
Did you ever wish for those to be put on the same stage list as THE BOYS, THE STIFFS or FAST CARS ?
Then these fellow Canucks are the ones to send your record order to ! Please don´t forget putting on some EDDIE & THE HOT RODS while writing this order, it just would be the perfect match.”

Great review with a nod to the recording/mastering quality.

Mother’s Children “Are You Tough Enough?” EP

I must say I have no love for our nation’s capital. It is way too fucking cold, way too fucking far from any other decent cities, a shitty drive from Toronto & just offers nothing I need. Peterborough high school gods Candywheel sang “get me out ofOttawa” years ago and it immediately comes to mind when someone mentions the city. All that aside, I love this Mother’s Children EP. Much like the aforementioned Barreracudas, this band sees the value in delivering the short sharp blast. Are You Tough Enough hits the roller rink flying and never lets up. The recording is fantastic – bright & ballsy – perfectly capturing a young band’s boundless energy and joy. Guitars crunch, bass pumps and drums pop huge in the mix, somehow not burying the abundant vocal harmonies.  Highlights in this economical set include punk rock Byrds jangler “Messin Around”, which features my favourite non-Weiss drum fills of the year, and the relentlessly hooky, Devo-nodding “Sue Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”.

“MOTHER’S CHILDREN European Tour May 2012!

Howdy,

I’m stoked to announce that MOTHER’S CHILDREN from the city of Ottawa plan on touring Europe finally in May 2012! If you wanna have them play your town, get in touch through info@takenbysurprise.net – a tentative schedule will follow soon. We released their ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH 12″ EP this year and they have a full length LP out on DERANGED RECORDS. Check out a song from the EP and a video from their LP below!”

“MOTHER’S CHILDREN:
Are You Tough Enough?: 12” EP

A six-song follow-up to their debut record, Ottawa’s finest return with a great release. They actually remind me of the Minneapolis’s Crash Kids a bit (which is a good thing, trust me). I like “Sabre Tooth” and “What’s Your Problem” the best here. There is a reason Paul Collins brought these guys on tour with them. They simply rock, in the best tradition of 20/20 or The Plimsouls. Pick this up and you will be bopping along when you pick up your burger and strawberry milkshake at your local fast food joint. Yum.

Mother’s Children

“Wow. This is some catchy tuneage. “Sue Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” is a classic pop-punk number that gets things started off just right. It’s up-tempo, it’s catchy, and it has lots of guitar. And things continue along exactly the same way. My only complaint, and this isn’t a real complaint, is that there are only six songs. Don’t tease me like that I want more. This is clearly a power pop band and not a pop punk band. (KK)”
