It's been a busy year for The Muggs. The rockin' blues trio spent much of the year touring out of state, with stops in llinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. In August, the band also released a music video of the song "Slow Curve," from the group's second LP, "On With the Show." A DVD package available on The Muggs' website (www.themuggs.com) includes "Slow Curve" recorded live at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit; "Laying It Down", a 16-minute documentary of the Muggs in the studio recording "Slow Curve"; and a bonus live track of "Never Know Why Live" recorded at St. Andrews Hall.
Since November, the band has been working with producer Jim Diamond at his Ghetto Recorders studio. Bassist Tony DeNardo reports that mixing is almost done on the 13-track LP, which will be titled "Born Ugly." It is set for a spring release.
