about

An ever-expanding album, written over Summer 2022. Some heavier tunes feature this time.

Mouth of a Docker? Mouth of the Cocker? or Mouth Like A Rocker? - who knows what would have made the best album title?

Actually this doesn't quite work, as Workington Docks sits at the mouth of the River Derwent, not the River Cocker, which joins the Derwent at, you guessed it, Cockermouth... never mind eh.

Review by Hans Werksman of herecomestheflood.com
Mint Biscuit: "Mouth Like A Rocker"

Richard Thomas goes for a rough-around-the-edges approach on "Mouth Like A Rocker", the new album by his one-man project Mint Biscuit. His hard rock side comes to the fore in I'm A Big Metal Fan and the bluesy The Jaguine Article.

Being the proud owner of a couple of cool axes - he used a Squier Jazzmaster, a Squier Jaguar, an Epiphone ES-339, and an Epiphone Les Paul - he allowed himself to explore various moods and tunings.

As for the album's title: it is a pun on his place of residence Cockermouth. And yes, he has heard all the lame jokes about that already.

Power chords sit comfortably next to single notes. Playing by intuition is not without risks - a tune can fall apart quite easily - but Thomas has a firm grip on where he wants to go. In this case a bit louder than his usual shtick, but it worked out well. He might be working his way to thrash metal or something equally challenging.
