My Mother The Carjacker

Danger Polka from Vancouver BC
On Hiatus - Confirmed: May. 4, 2018 (Awaiting Update)

Contact Details

My Mother The Carjacker is a Canadian alternative avant-grunge ponk ruck danger polka band comprised of 3 sentient puzzle pieces that somehow fit equilaterally in perfect, non-sequitur harmony. Melding influences from bands like System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age, Primus, and combining it with literally anything else, the band utilizes their musical prowess and quirky sense of humour to create an experience that goes beyond their explorative sense of songwriting.

"Genres are harder to define than ever. Avant-grunge, funk rock, and danger polka punk are just a few attempts at characterizing MMC’s sound with words. But they don’t care about creating a theme or focussing on a certain category. What they want is to generate music with unpredictability—the I’m-up-on-my-feet-and-moving-without-knowing-it kind of music." -- TheOtherPress

"Built with three solid musicians, My Mother the Carjacker has completed a diverse piece of art seeping pleasant, gritty and humourous sounds catering to a fluid audience that likes good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll and beyond. Live, MMCJ is uncaged, rabid and wild releasing a spoiled whirlwind of energy." -- VanMusic
