If you were to nip down to your newsagent on Saturday morning and purchase a copy of the Independent newspaper you would find yourself with a copy of the debut album from Mongrel. It is the first time a band has done a giveaway of their debut album with a national newspaper.
Can I urge you to get yourself a copy of this album. I’ve been listening on Myspace and the lyrics pummel you. They are saturated with political sentiment that will not let you rest easy. Click here to read Steve Lamacq’s musings on John McLure (the Reverend out of Reverend and the Makers) who plays a major part of this band. I am really chuffed that this fella from Sheffield is making waves and actually doing things that irritatingly provoke and make a difference.
