Dog Trumpet has a NEW double (2CD) album. It is called Medicated Spirits.

Why should you care?  

Here are 10 very valid reasons:

  • Because Dog Trumpet features two enormously talented singer/songwriters who also happen to be two of Australia's finest artists. 
  • Reg did the artwork for PiL's Greatest Hits album!
  • For 20+ years, Reg and Peter used to be members of one of Australia's finest Pop combos, MENTAL AS ANYTHING. 
  •  Mental As Anything did THIS song (btw, that's Reg on slide guitar and Peter on bass):

  • Reg and Peter are brothers. 

  • Reg Mombassa is one of the coolest names in Rock. But alas, it is not his real name.  I reckon those who have known him since he was a wee lad probably still call him Chris O'Doherty.  
  • Peter O'Doherty is NOT Pete Doherty, the drug addicted dickhead from The Libertines and Babyshambles.  Peter O'Doherty is the melodically-gifted basshead from Dog Trumpet. And formerly of Mental As Anything. 

  • Dog Trumpet has already released five albums:
Two Heads One Brain (1991)

Suitcase (1996)

Dog Trumpet (2002)

Antisocial Tendencies (2007)

River Of Flowers (2010)

  • Their 2013 release, Medicated Spirits, is a double album (on two CDs). Not many bands have enough quality material for one album, let alone a double.
  • Dog Trumpet has released some amazing material in their 20+ year career.  Including songs such as these: 








So, what are you waiting for?  Time to order Medicated Spirits.
