Somerset Sounds - Artists

Mugshot

Mugshot

Meet Mugshot from Bruton and Frome. They play hardcore, punk-infested music, with huge metal beat-downs.

Who are Mugshot?

Alex on bass and vox; Zakk on guitar and vox; and Jordi on drums and vox.

Where in Somerset are you from?

Bruton and Frome

When did you form?

Mugshot

In 2003

How did you get together?

Zakk and Alex started playing guitars together when they were in primary school, along with another guy.

The three of us decided to start a band, with Jordi as a stand-in drummer. We kicked our lead guitarist out, and Jordi decided to play for us full-time.

How would you describe your music?

Old school- and new school-hardcore. Punk-infested, but with huge metal beat-downs.

How did the band gets its name?

Jordi and Gareth (our good friend and brother from Frome hardcore-crew, Blasphemy) were making plans to start a hardcore band called Mugshot.

When that fell through, we adopted the name.

Who are your musical influences?

Mugshot

Just the old-timers - the ones who did it first, like Agnostic Front and Mad Ball.

We've also got a lot of respect for the locals, like Against Your Honour, 5 Knuckle and Baysix.

What is your most memorable gig so far?

Got to be the home-town show at Bruton Backlash.

After two months of shows in Bristol, Trowbridge, Bradford-on-Avon and Bath, it was great to play to a huge crowd of great people. Especially when they knew the words!

Where would you most like to play?

Any where that'll take us. Old-metal venues are cool!

Finally, tell us some interesting facts about yourself

  • Zakk's taller than Jordi, despite being three years younger
  • We're all vegetarians
  • There have been physical fights at band practice
  • Emo? Go away
