Final farewell


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
