Mudmowth & Metabeats ‘Sledgehammer’ track was just used in the brand new BMX edit from the young and upcoming photographer Sam Davies. The video features James Jones, another rising star who after riding the local parks for a few years, has over the last year or so seen his stock rise rapidly, picking up a couple of sponsors along the way including big ballers Animal. Watch the boy get busy.

You can cop the track from Mud & Meta here on iTunes
and on CD at the AM Store

Mudmowth, currently moving between his new home in Indonesia and Malaysia, just did an interview with DJ Red Viking on Arizona College Radio. This is the email we received from Red apologising and explaining a delay. Even though he truly had nothing to apologise for this is pretty much the wildest reason for anything to be delayed we’ve ever had land in the inbox. Enjoy…

ALBUM: MAAAD TIGHT ft. SonnyJim and Skamma


We’re proud to say it’s finally here. ‘Maaad Tight’ is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming ‘Sledgehammer Kisses’ LP from the dream team pairing of METABEATS & MUDMOWTH. With production handled by the unstoppable Metabeats and featuring Mudmowth alongside 2 of this nations finest spitters in SONNYJIM and SKAMMA it is a veritable shower of disgusting rhymes, with more skills on display than your average Olympics. The ferocious stuttered drums lay the foundations for slick sample chops and an infectious vocal hook.

With a music video already completed and following shortly Meta & Mud are looking to set down the marker making 2010 the year for hip-hop in the UK. We gonna go strong. Let your people know.

Shrew Exhibition

The incredible cover artwork by Mister Shrew for Mudmowth’s ‘Circus In The Cemetery’ 12 inch, was recently featured as part of a month long exhibition of a whole heap of Shrew’s work at the Magpie Gallery in Cardiff. We went along to check it out. If you missed it shame on you.
This actual framed version now resides on Mayor’s hallway wall looking baby fresh and dope.

Set for release June 2008 this 5 track ‘Circus In The Cemetery‘ 12″ will be released as a special edition white coloured vinyl with cover artwork by the incredible Mister Shrew, fresh back from Barcelona on the ‘Secret Wars’ European Tour.

After the major success of the January Tour you know we had to go back to the see the good people of the Emerald Isle and the luckily our favourite promoters wanted it to happen too. So we went back with Ruff and Fozzy as the headliners to try kill it again. Ralph & Mud did a little ten minute P.A. to set the shows off in the proper style and fashion and then Ruff and Fozzy straight muredered in a way like no others can match.

Their show is ridiculous and we say that with no bias. It’s next level original. And if you ain’t caught it you need to. Just can’t wait to go back now and hit up Dublin and see more of the beautiful country. Shouts to all the people who reached out and showed us love. And to all the Cork schoolgirls!?!

Ruff and Fozzy did an instore in Plug’d Records in Cork City. The theme was red.

^^^John Gough aka Gougho the Cranker aka Dope-As-Shit-Brekkie-Chef on the wheels of steel.

^^^ Ladies and gentlemen… introducing… New Ralph Ralph Shit.

^^^Mud taking well deserved ‘boy in the stush corner’ chill time after the gig.

Promoter Doobs showing us the colour of his Irish money. That was soon to become ours. But due to Ralph doing some seriously dodgy parking of the A.M. tour van in the centre of Cork it had been towed earlier the same day and so that money was soon to become Cork City Councils to bunk it back out the pound! Heck money comes and money goes. You got to keep your grizzly going.

Fozzy and Ruffstylz just performed at Speaker Corner in Brixton and brought them the next level in how a beatboxer and emcee really can mix and blend to push things forward and display skills whilst bring it HARD.

Barnie Rumble headed off to Oz to let them know where it’s at. At the same time P.L.O. arrived back from the states – equipped with some serious equipment and intent to make his name as the best mix engineer in the U.K. Be warned…

All the ghetto grandmas valley wide are soon to be rocking Mudmowth hard on their speakerboxes.

If the media ball keeps rolling hard like this, then look for features soon in Hound & Hare and Advanced Carp Fishing!

This is one crazy world we are living in.


Saturday, February 19th, 2005

Just had a call from the Welsh Music Awards saying that Mudmowth is through to the final 3 for BEST MC. So big thanks and respect to all those who voted for him and helped him get there – dude deserves it for sure.
