Mugstar  > formed in Liverpool, England and immediately set about recording their first single Spotlight Over Memphis which drew attention from John Peel, who played the 7" a number of times. It was after the next 7" 'Flavin' Hotrod' that John Peel offered the band a Peel Session. A split 7" with Hunting Lodge followed. Although the first three 7"s are more noisy garage rock than the music they became known for,

A mini album on Kabukikore Records 'Dark Matter' come next which was closely followed by a session for BBC Radio One's Huw Stephens. January 2006 saw the release of "My Baby Skull Has Not Yet Flowered" hailed in some quarters as psych classic and featured in magazines as diverse as Mix Mag, The Wire, Kerrang and The Times. The debut album 'Mugstar' was released at the end of 2006 on Sea Records on CD and on Critical MASS Records on a limited run of heavy weight vinyl in 2007. The album gained the band fans across the world especially in America. Mugstar then started a productive relationship with Ireland based Trensmat Records with run of limited 7" singles from 'Bethany Heart Star' to 'Today is the Wrong Shape'. One of these releases was a split 7" with Seattle's finest Mudhoney, with both bands doing covers of Hawkwind songs.
