Dog Trumpet is a family affair - brothers Peter O'Doherty and Reg Mombassa are former members of legendary Aria award winning Australian band Mental As Anything. They contributed hit songs to the Mentals such as Berserk Warriors, Egypt, Brain Brain, Apocalypso, Surf and Mull and Sex and Fun, Close Again and Psychedelic Peace Lamp.
Over the last twenty years as Dog Trumpet they have released five albums: Two Heads One Brain, Suitcase, Dog Trumpet, Antisocial Tendencies and River of Flowers. In 2013 they continue their sonic alchemy of psychedelic folk, country and semi-abstract blues with their sixth and best release, a double album, Medicated Spirits.
Reg is well known for his iconic work for Mambo Graphics and as a fine artist. Peter is also a successful and much sought after painter. For over three decades the brothers have exhibited in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia.
With their slide guitar and mandolin driven songbook they have graced stages in Australia and internationally, charming audiences with their folksy two heads, one brain travelling minstrel show.
Dog Trumpet look forward to seeing you at one of their friendly and intimate shows in the near future.
