The Mutineers


Ralph briefly had a look at The Mutineers back in May of last year, but after their first album things went fairly quiet due to personal projects (bassist Iwan Gronow playing for Johnny Marr for instance) and a self imposed 'hiatus'.  The good news is, they're back with a vengeance.

With the release of the new single 'Tell Me Why' and a mini-tour planned for October/November, The Mutineers mighty music machine is back on the road.

The single stays true to The Mutineers strong lyric writing ability and with a haunting vocal and musicality it's guaranteed to be a 'Muts' favourite as well as garnering them popularity with the wider Indie world. Let's hope this sees them focus on the band as a unit and with stability find a greater degree of success.  Current line up of the band is Nicholas James MallinsMichael ReedIwan Gronow, Charles Salt and Thomas Twemlow.

They've an impressive back catalogue of support appearances with the likes of The View, New Order and Pete Doherty.  Whilst having a reputation for selling out their own home ground gigs it's good to see the mini-tour taking in four major cities country-wide, The Mutineers are taking their music to the masses and they'll be playing tracks from the critically acclaimed 'Friends, Lovers, Rivals' album alongside new tracks including the single 'Tell Me Why'.
