Reg Mombassa and his brother Peter O’Doherty began their musical careers playing and writing in the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees band Mental As Anything. The Mentals had 20 songs in the top 40 (a record for an Australian band) and a global hit with ‘Live It Up’ that only last Christmas hit #1 on manyUK charts.

In 2000, Reg and Pete split from the Mentals to pursue their own sound. Describing what that is can be tricky – an eclectic blend of rock, psychedelic folk and semi-abstract blues; whimsical, political, curious, intimate, scientific, erotic and witty.  They are part of a long tradition of left-field song writers and storytellers relative to the canon of work by such acts as the Kinks, Nick Lowe, Squeeze and John Prine.

The Sydney Morning Herald said: “Brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa can’t help themselves. The charm oozes from the lyrics, the singing and the instantly appealing melodies. Part of it is down to the absence of posturing, part to the way the catchiness of pop is anchored to earthy grooves.”

Dog Trumpet have released seven albums so far. Produced by Peter and written by both of them. The title of the first one ‘Two Heads One Brain’ sums them up, the brothers having an intuitive melodic connection that infuses their music with a classic timelessness.  

Peter and Reg are also visual artists.  Reg is one of Australia’s most recognised artists well known for his work for the Mambo label, along with graphics, posters, album covers and many decades of fine art. Peter’s fine art painting focuses on the urban and suburban built environment and is equally well regarded.

Dog Trumpet have toured extensively throughout Australia, and a little bit across the US, culminating at SXSW a few years ago.  Demon Music recently approached Dog Trumpet about releasing their back catalogue internationally.  The Demon label was started by Jake Riviera and Elvis Costello who later produced the Mentals single ‘I Didn’t Mean to be Mean’.

Demon Music is known as one of the best catalogue/reissue labels in the world releasing specialist BBC titles and focusing on niche and cult bands.  Digital release on all platforms is 16th July 2021, vinyl release is 29th October 2021.  

Dog Trumpet’s seven albums are; Two Heads One Brain, Suitcase, Dog Trumpet (self titled), Antisocial Tendencies, River of Flowers, Medicated Spirits and their latest Great South Road.

For the first time ever, a complete vinyl LP collection of the audio versions of all twelve Fawlty Towers TV episodes  – with an exclusive frameable print signed by the legendary John Cleese. This is strictly limited to just 1500 copies worldwide! https://smarturl.it/Fawlty_Towers_Record

Four decades on from its original BBC TV broadcast, Fawlty Towers continues to shine as a masterclass in comedy writing and performance. Now the original four BBC vinyl albums – Fawlty Towers, Second Sitting, At Your Service and A La Carte – are joined by two newly created collections, Plat du Jour and Enjoy Your Stay, to form a box set of all 12 TV episodes. Much of the special linking narration – supplied by hapless waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs) – is unique to the vinyl versions and hasn’t been available since their original pressings.

All episodes star John Cleese as harassed hotelier Basil Fawlty, with Prunella Scales as Sybil, Connie Booth as Polly and Andrew Sachs as Manuel. Among the guest cast checking in for the night are Bernard Cribbins, Joan Sanderson, Geoffrey Palmer, Ballard Berkeley, Nicky Henson, Ken Campbell and Una Stubbs.

Each of the six 140g white vinyl LPs is presented in an all-new artwork cover, inside which is a facsimile of the original BBC Records & Cassettes cover (plus ‘faux’ period covers for Plat du Jour and Enjoy Your Stay). A four-page booklet details the development of Fawlty Towers, plus a history of the original LP releases, by Tim Worthington, author of Top of the Box – a guide to every single released by BBC Records And Tapes. A 12” frameable art print of Basil, which John Cleese has signed exclusively for this limited edition run, is also included in the attractive rigid box with lift-off lid.

Presented in their original vinyl LP edits, the episodes are Communications Problems (aka ‘Mrs Richards’), The Hotel Inspectors, Basil the

Rat (aka ‘The Rat’), The Builders, The Kipper and the Corpse (aka ‘Death’), The Germans (aka ‘Fire Drill’), Waldorf Salad (aka ‘The Americans’), Gourmet Night, A Touch of Class, The Wedding Party, The Psychiatrist and The Anniversary.

PLEASE NOTE: Fawlty Towers is a classic comedy which reflects the broadcast standards, language and attitudes of its time. Some listeners may find this content offensive. This edition features the original BBC Records LP edits.
