Who the fuck is Moron Police?

What happens if you take a pinch of Jack Black’s non-existent scruffy beard, add a sweaty glob of bastard metal in the vein of System of A Down then subsequently top it off by boiling it in Frank Zappa’s stinky night potty?

Hard to tell, but it would probably end up smelling alarmingly like Moron Police, who may or may not be a band.

The hard-hitting (whatever that means), psychedelic trio from the rebellious outskirts of Vest-Agder in Norway, finds funk and metal to be a legitimate combo and enjoys hitting you in the face with a ten ton hammer comprised of awesome riffs and bad humor.
Since they’re a pretty ugly bunch, they try to make up for it by acting like a pack of traumatized spastics onstage.

So people with a particular taste for kilts, wannabe kilts, army helmets, beards, bad breath and more beards should feel obligated to show up when MoPo hits the stage.

Their debut album, The Propaganda Machine is being self-released digitally through CD Baby, and via mail-order. It drops September 21st on CD and VINYL.

The album was recorded at Dreamlab Studios in Stavanger, mixed by Ashley Stubbert (Purified in Blood, Kvelertak) and finally mastered by Chris Sansom (Propeller Mastering). The exquisite cover art design is by the ultra-talented Liz Buckfield.

 

Some career highlights:

– Winner of Norway Rock Festival Band Fight 2011
– Winner of HoveBattle Grimstad 2011
– Finalist – norwegian national liveband competition Zoom 2010
– Supports for Paul Dianno, Dunderbeist, Major Parkinson, Audrey Horne, Head Disco, Black Debbath and Blood Cargo

 

Said about Moron Police:

“…At times it sounds like System of A Down, and looks like a very disturbing kids show on The Distortion Channel, while having lyrics served with self-irony on a bed of bad local town humor” – Amund Hestsveen, Fædrelandsvennen.

“…their sick, yet funny, mix of heavy metal, funk, rap and madness hits you in the face like a fist you love to get beaten by.”
