Priding themselves on the unconventional, the counter-culture group take inspiration from Spaghetti Western film-soundtracks Ugly Mothers inject blockbuster Hollywood guitar riffs with a snarl.
Thematically Ugly Mothers write songs referring to a wide variety of obscure topics including wealthy white men captured in South America, lively brothels in occupied Paris, the sex-tourism industry in the Far-East and the mental health of army veterans suffering from PTSD.

https://hotvox.co.uk/artist/ali-macqueen-2/Ali MacQUEEN is a resilient singer/songwriter and – two brain surgeries (and a broken arm) make you that way. He writes anthemic and powerful songs about wanting more – more from your life and more from what you’re being told to accept. Signed to Blagger’s Records, he released “Loretto” in March 2021 – a perfect festival anthem that was described by This Feeling as “perfect widescreen cinematic alt-rock”.
He’s currently writing more material, and will be releasing a new song in September, co-written and producer, Happy Cat Jay, as well as playing more gigs in the build up to the next track and a new album later in the year
