Mumbofish: On Fish Assholes, Obnoxious Homeless Fans & Slomo

Written by on 18 December 2017

Answered by: Ben Role: Guitar/vocals Where did the band name come from? The band was named after my goldfish, Mumbo.

Written by on 2 November 2017

1 November, Paddington Town Hall Who would have thought that Paddington Town Hall would become my new favourite venue?
