Mongrel. A coalition of the willing. A force of nature based on musical artists who want to say something about the world they live in and be free of the merry go round of make record release make record release. Attached to the old fashioned notion that its cool to care about the world you live in made popular by the punks and the 60's counter culturalists before them we got together and made a record from our own pockets to make a stand and put our sword in the dirt.
Bringing together people from different parts in the world of different musical styles, Mongrel merges the UK indie music scene with a hip hop community ignored for the large part by the wider media. Tackling themes shied away from by mainstream musicians, Mongrel was mixed and dubbed by Adrian Sherwood of ON-U-SOUND. Made in the backdrop of London at a time when the BNP were on the increase and a man who calls Black People "picaninnies", Mongrel is a celebration of everything that is good about Britain at the same time as pointing out its flaws. A coming together of different culture from common cause. We play Lebanon in August and the UK in October. Ma'salam
