Hello all. It’s high time I committed myself to ink. It’s been brought to my attention the Mentals site has been stationary for a few years. We are addressing this presently. After a futile attempt by the record company to run our merchandise we have decided to return to our old method of doing it ourselves. This will crank up with CDs and a new tee shirt becoming available over coming months. We are also looking at a downloading facility for newly recorded tracks. This may take a bit longer. After 35 years we still don’t do things in a hurry.
A big cheerio to those who come to shows and clap and dance and sing along. Your blood’s worth bottling. I’m enjoying live performance more than ever. I think we are playing our tunes fairly faithfully to the originals and this is most satisfying .our new bassman Zoltan Budai and drummer Jacob Cook have brought a lot to the lineup considering they are filling the capable shoes of old drummer Robbie and bassist Duck. Robbie is recovering from a major health scare and is now playing with The Pinks ( old Mentals Reg and Peter ,Rob Suesz from Dynamic Hepnotics and Karma County’s Brendan Gallagher). Duck is getting a new hip and has recently set an epic poem to music.
Over coming months we will be on Norfolk Island , revisiting Brisbane Expo 88, on a South Pacific Ozrock cruise, touring Australia with Boomtown Rats as well as our own dates in Perth, Darwin, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney etc. I love playing in etc, they really know how to party. If we haven’t played your town recently we are bound to play there soon.
I will blog any Mental news as it comes to hand.
Bye for now
