Mongrels’ setlist at the old Brennan’s … Nov. 1, 2012, taken with trusty BlackBerry, which later drowned in the Ionian Sea.
JBNBlog is delighted to learn The Mongrels will be rawkin The Reeg on Saturday (April 26) . . . details from Corinne Marshall follow.
In a recent encounter, Mongrels’ Robert & Joel indicated many new songs had been learned, somewhat dismaying JBNBlog who has always praised the M’s setlist as the best in London . . . & how do you top that. why tinker with it?
Not to worry, our heroes rejoined. No one will recognize the new songs, either. Hmm. Double hmm. Because in recent LFP coverage of Record Store Day, JBNBlog studiously left The Village Idiot (home to Robert, occasionally Joel etc) off the list under the (perhaps false) impression The VId looked askance at the celebration because Every. Day. Is. Record. Store. Day. Or something like that . . . if this is wrong, my apologies.
In any get over to the St. Regis, 625 Dundas St., & hear some rockers you may not recognize . . . but they will all be excellent. Because The Mongrels have the best setlist in London. No matter what is on it.
(Over to Corinne) ….
We’ll be putting on the dog this Saturday, as the Mongrels return once again for another Musical Chairs! “best in show”! This is a band that really shows its mottled markings, trotting out some classic Elvis Costello, a bit of suitably mangy Neil Young and even a touch of the ol’ Diamond Dog himself! Patches of 60s mod and and psychedelia along with some original greats enrich the breed still further! Come get a whiff and see what all the baying is about!
The music starts at around 9 pm and continues until at least midnight. It’s “pay what you will” and you just might be our lucky Sweet Draw winner this week!
