Mowbird are a three piece surf-punk band from Wrexham. Formed in 2010, following the dissolution of grunge band Roy Destroy, by three friends who shared a love for Fugazi, and their DIY punk rock ethic. Mowbird do not take themselves seriously. Their favourite collective past-time is snorkeling, and mowing the lawn, although Mike cannot swim. This is not an issue whilst mowing the lawn, but does cause problems whilst snorkelling, so often band activities are completed apart. If you like songs, you will like Mowbird.
