Reg Mombassa was in the exhibition, and together with the rest of the band, Dog Trumpet played at the opening of the exhibition at the new Mission space in Chippendale last night. I first heard Mental As Anything playing at the Unicorn in Paddington when they first started. I also used to see them at the Civic or somewhere like that, but mostly at the Unicorn. They were fabulous, then they became famous. Reg and his brother were central to the Mentals and they are central to Dog Trumpet. They looked like they were having lots of fun. Tonight they did a wonderful rendition of a Marlena Dietrich song that I love and lots more beautiful music. I felt honored to be able to take some shots. Here they are.
