Album-These Things Move in Threes
Release Date-May 28, 2007
Biography-Mumm-Ra are an English indie rock band originating from Bexhill on Sea. Their name originates from the main villain of the 1980s cartoon, Thundercats. They first rose to public attention when they performed with the NME Awards Indie Rock Tour alongside The Automatic, The View and The Horrors, and were featured in the January 2007 edition of NME as one of ten bands who were "guaranteed to soundtrack" 2007. They also received early airplay thanks to Dermot O'Leary and his BBC Radio 2 show.
They have been quoted as saying that music was their only way to escape from the closed community of their hometown, an increasingly common scenario with many newly emerging British bands. Despite this, several references to Bexhill on Sea are made in their lyrics and the band seem quietly proud of their heritage. An amusing note to this end is that the band appear almost indifferent when questioned in interviews about the possibility of playing at Glastonbury, but when their hometown's 600 capacity De la Warr pavilion is mentioned, they show considerably more excitement.
