We had a chance to sit down with the Adam from the band Mongrel. We talked about the band, pay to play shows, music and members.
YB: What's the origin of the band name?
Adam: Mongrel started in 2003 when myself (Adam Savage) and our first singer Matt "Death" Rowe set out to start a new band that combined a variety of influences including rock, punk, metal, and anything else that inspired us. Matt proposed the name Mongrel, and it was perfect since it by definition means a mixed breed, and had that implied aggression we were going for in the association with the name. When Matt left the band in early 2004 he gave his blessings to keep going with the name and we have ever since.
