Final farewell

Sat, May 17, 2008, 01:00

Earlier this year, Mongrelmagazine bowed out at the top after five years of irreverent journalism and stylish design.

The last issue, with its instant classic "Mass Card" cover, was a fitting finale, with a selection of some of the mag's best articles from its lifetime. But now, Phoenix-like, Mongrel is returning for one last hurrah, an extra-length valedictory issue boasting even more gems from the archives, or an Ultimate Collection in music industry parlance. Did anyone say collector's item? The issue costs €7 and is available at HMVs and select retailers throughout the country , or you can e-mail if you want to purchase any copies directly. Davin O'Dwyer
