Loudmouth were formed under the slate-gray skies of post-Industrial Sunderland in late 1999 by Mick and Dave Jones (sons of Jammy from the first punk band in Sunderland: The Rebels).
They initially recruited guitarist Duggy Giro and drummer Droy (Drummer Boy). This lineup played their first gig at The Borough(Sunderland) supporting Ramones tribute act Ramona (which was fitting since they took their name from the Ramones song ‘Loudmouth’). With their first EP (Useless Generation) selling well at gigs Loudmouth steadily built upon their growing reputation and released their second EP (Idiot Army) which was met with rave reviews. By this point they had parted company with Droy due to musical differences and replaced him with Andy Wilkinson.
Replacing Duggy Giro with Willis, Loudmouth recorded their third EP (All Tied Up) and won a Battle of the Bands in Bar-36 (now Independant) in Sunderland, winning £500 which was used to record their debut single (Friends Like You) which was self-released. The late Tommy Hair (ex- Producer for TV Channel Scuzz) worked with the band to record a video for their single.
Loudmouth continued to play gigs, their growing reputation enabling them to share the stage with some of the biggest names in punk rock, including UK Subs, Dead Kennedys, The Damned, Glenn Matlock, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Total Chaos, Red Alert, The Vibrators, Leftover Crack and the Angelic Upstarts. They then embarked on a tour of Europe with Red Alert, playing Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic before coming back and supporting Rancid in Edinburgh. Making the most of the situation they also booked themselves to play in Glasgow and Aberdeen, the latter with Jughead’s band ‘Even In Blackouts’.
Upon returning to Wearside, Loudmouth recorded another EP – Bludgeoned with Reality and continued to gig steadily. Willis temporarily left the band to be replaced by Perky and later Dean Liddel. It was in this time that they toured America and Europe again and started working on their debut album.
Upon Willis’ return Loudmouth recorded their self-titled debut album and have it ready for release. They’re planning to tour again shortly after brief visits to France and the Czech Republic along with well-recieved notable gigs in Camden, Halifax, Watford and Newcastle left them hungry for success.
With driving ambition, powerful songs and an energetic live show Loudmouth keep pushing forward with their ever-growing army of fans behind them.
