When MONGRELS first ventured across the rugged Pennines landscape, through Snake Pass and into the Pop Wilderness, little did they know a chance encounter would change their lives forever. Stood in the centre of a stone circle, the silhouette of a man appeared under the full moon. Dressed in a flannel Champion bathrobe and welcoming them with open arms, it was none other than their long lost relative, BURGUNDY BLOOD. He was indeed ‘the brother from another mother’ whom they had heard so much about. Although no words were exchanged, he looked upon them knowingly. After a short ritual display of lunar worship, the enigmatic figure disappeared into the night leaving only a mysterious cassette behind. The tape was simply labeled ‘IN THE POP WILDERNESS’. The master copy has now been verified as 100% dope and has been duplicated 100 times for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
