Peter, Mongrel and more Peter


Peter explains in his words what happened yesterday (here).

Mongrel, the indie super-group featuring Arctic Monkeys Matt Helders, former Monkey Andy Nicholson, Babyshambles' Drew McConnell, Reverend And The Makers' Jon McClure and Joe Moskow and rapper Lowkey – have announced details of their first UK and Irish tour. The collective – who are set to release their debut album in October – will play three live dates in Autumn plus one yet-to-be confirmed show in Lebanon. Tickets for the three shows go on sale Thursday (July 17). MONGREL will play: Dublin Academy (October 15) Sheffield Academy (16) London Hackney Empire (17). A Mongrel exclusive is expected in the next NME.

Plus, Peter talks about his solo album (here), now set for an Autumn release. Please take note: "He will honour all his booked live commitments with Babyshambles, but will not book further gigs until the solo album is finished". So, tonight the Shambles are playing the Montreux Jazz Festival, somehow confirmed by Babybear while hanging in Zurich.
