The Mind and Times of Reg Mombassa
by Murray Waldren
This impressive book reveals Christopher O’Doherty, aka Reg Mombassa. He has been part of our culture for more than thirty years with a unique view of our world – and of his. His wit and mischievous energy came out in the songs and performances of Mental As Anything, whose music was so important to a whole generation. His sometimes absurd and idealistic art influenced a few more generations with his quirky and distinctive designs for the original Mambo label.
The book has intriguing insights into the pop culture of recent decades wonderfully illustrated with photos of the times and Reg Mombassa’s art.
This is History, Art and Pop Culture in one excellent book that makes a great gift or just for yourself over the Christmas.
