So what is so significant about Bingo Mut? Matt Fox played drums for them before starting Shai Hulud thats what. I can look back now and appreciate this record though when I first heard it I did not care for it (probably because I was trying to be Mr. Hardcore Elitist). Now I can listen back and enjoy it. If anyone has further information on the band, please let me know so I can add it. Also this was released by Far Out Records who seemed to have their hands in everything punk/ska that came out of South Florida. Just a heads up, Matt informed me that he has a recording that was supposed to be their second 7 inch but was never released. He's in Europe right now but when he gets back Ill try and get it posted. Also, thanks to Alex who noted that Pete Careeno who played bass in Culture played in Bingo Mut. Thanks also goes out to Joe Basi
for letting us know that Bingo Mut Founding Member and Bassist Tim McGrath went on to form the Jive Step Bunch and King 7 and the Soulsonics and played bass in both bands. He is also a well known Tattoo Artist - was previously at Babylon Tattoo and is now living in Georgia.
