There are at least several bands named Mordecai: 1) A ramshackle noise rock band from Butte, Montana. The kids in Mordecai can't be a day over 22. They live in Butte, Montana. According to their MySpace comments, they spend a lot of time drinking beer on the street. Their name could be a reference to the hawk in The Royal Tennenbaums or some unselfconscious attempt at being hard. The only thing that's certain is that their music has absolutely no right to be this great.
