Mama Matrix and The Joy of Ceps

Oh my, it seems those wonderful Mamas can charm the pants off anyone. When Times food writer Lucas Hollweg stumbled upon the band belting out their ode to autumnal excess- Gather Ye Mushrooms- at Bishop’s Castles Michaelmas Fair last year,  he just couldn’t keep it to himself! I give you, dear friends:

The Joy of Ceps

After a fruitless journey to the depths of Cannon Hill Park, Gather Ye Mushrooms came to Daz Dolczech as if by magic! How ironic….

Mama Matrix meet Adam and Eve

Ladies and Gentlemen, this Saturday January 31st, an unprecedented meeting will take place- Adam and Eve will play host to Mama Matrix. The originators of sin, the couple who bit the apple, the waif and the stray from the Garden of Eden, are taking the Mamas to their bosom for a night of feverish Balkan Gypsy hedonism, and it won’t cost you a penny to witness! Free entry from 8pm until 2am, with support from the dangerous Marc Reck and the unpardonable Hidden Half. We look forward to seeing you at The Adam and Eve Public House, Bradford Street, Digbeth. Prepare to be pleasured.

How Mama Matrix came to be

In late 2005, a group of musicians moved into a house in Birmingham’s Speedwell road, and converted the basement into a secret after hours bar, where they ran a sreies of late night jam parties, primarily to pay the rent. The reputation of the SAC (Speedwell Arts Centre) quickly spread across the city and beyond, attracting a diverse crowd of accomplished musicians and artists. Three of these musicians; singer/songwriter Daz Dolczech, guitarist Murpheus and violinist Anka J started playing together regularly, united by their passion for Balkan gypsy music. They were joined by tuba player Dark Mavis and drummer Mike Hurley. and so Mama Matrix was born.
