As Reg Mombassa’s whirl wind tour of Australia draws to a close we can reflect on what an amazing ride it has been. Kicking off his tour on the east coast, Reg has regaled crowds in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth with tales from his time as a Mental, the stories behind his distinctive designs for Mambo and his beginnings in fine art. Coupled with the extensive coverage he has received in the media, including interviews in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Courier Mail, The Daily Telegraph, The Age, The Australian, The Canberra Times and many more, Reg’s tour of Australia has been a resounding success. The Mind and Times of Reg Mombassa is the big book everyone will want under their tree this Christmas.
Whether you know and love Reg from The Mentals, Mambo or his exquisite fine art, you’ll love this book …December 7, 2009
