Play the Game
The Moochers started up in 1994 when the songwriting team of Mat Walklate (vocal, harp) and Andy Pyatt (guitar) met up in Manchester UK. The new CD Play The Game is our third album and the first to contain all our own material. Our previous albums have received excellent reviews all over the world and the band has tourd extensively in the UK, Ireland and Europe. We think that Play The Game is the best thing we've ever done and so, it seems do the people we've sent it to so far! The album came out in October 2005 and already it's had loads of airplay and positive reviews. Andy is a truly great guitar player-inventive, soulful, intelligent and true to the blues. Together with Mat's rich voice, expressive harp and superb lyrics The Moochers have created fourteen brand new songs that carry the true spirit of the blues forward into the 21st century! There's a full range of different feels and grooves on the album, a full range of emotions expressed and an irresistible beat provided by Bo Kirton on bass and Chris Wharton on drums. If you like original, contemporary blues with a firm grounding in the blues tradition and real heart and soul then The Moochers are a band you need to hear!
