lifeblood: songs: backgrounds: big cup of empty


1998-04: notes from amy, daemon records:

the new mongrels' second cd-big cup of empty will be out the third week of march. once again musicians from l.a., atlanta, and seattle joined together to record the songs of haynes brooke. the cd is...hmmm..what should i say...very mongrel like-loose and experimental, yet loyal to the craft of songwriting. we won't be touring behind this record, but to me, when i listen to the cd it feels like the mongrels are in the room with me ...i don't know how we would get all the dogs on the road anyway.

1998-winter: making a difference, lorelei music magazine:

new mongrels-"big cup of empty"
this is not really a band but a side project for a bunch of musicians including, among others, indigo girls and michelle malone. songwriter haynes brooke describes new mongrels music as "iconoclastic roots music". kind of folkie and bluegrassy at times-but definitely eclectic also-it is american in the best sense: performed with conviction and unafraid to be a little weird.
