Mug-shot started life as a three-piece band in March of 2004, and gigged for the greater part of that year. At the beginning of 2005 our bassist left the band. Mug-shot was then ‘reborn’ when we recruited a new bassist and keyboardist. The resulting four-piece band brings a fresh and innovative approach to the South African music scene.Mugshot draws on many influences. We are inspired in particular by those bands that are able to combine different musical styles in a seamless and effortless manner. It follows that we’ve been inspired by bands such as The Police, The Beatles, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Nirvana. What is so appealing to us regarding these bands is that they are able to combine more ‘grooving verse sections with very sing-a-long, more ‘rocky’ choruses. In addition, we are inspired by ‘real’ musicians, innovators, and masters of their trades like Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Buddy Guy, and Stevie Wonder.
