May is going to be mental

Stephen Booth

A POPULAR urban myth concerns a group of art students who passed themselves off as a band in order to con the local publican into paying them with beer for a gig.

The deception worked better than intended, and the group came to be known as Mental as Anything.

Nearly three decades later they are still irritating the public with their highly listenable, idiosyncratic brand of garage pop.

They play the Cudgen Leagues Club on May 25 from 7.30pm.

Phone 02 6674 1816.
