Billy Reeves: Trying to Ride a Donkey

December 1st 2023

Billy Reeves (UK/Theaudience) has released a cover version of a classic Mummypowder track, Trying to Ride a Donkey. Check the mesmerising video below!

Billy has previously been the mastermind of the band Theaudience and his second solo album including "Donkey" is due Spring 2024. The Manics' James Dean Bradfield has called him "The best English lyricist", so it's an honor to have a cover of ours to appear as the first single and the opening track for his solo album, to say the least!

Mummypowder is on Bandcamp

October 2nd 2020

Mummypowder Bandcamp

Mummypowder Bandcamp page is open! 🔥 To celebrate our 25 year journey, we rummaged through our cupboards, and – well, the point is, there's 20 previously unreleased tracks: demos and alternate versions, outtakes, acoustic demos, live performances, etc. included on these releases!

New Releases

Sara's Song single (+ a bonus acoustic version)
Centuries Later (Deluxe Edition) (2011)
Consternation? Uproar? (Demo Versions) (2004)
V. Strange (Deluxe Edition) (2003)
Headcleaner (2020 remaster) (1996)

Some of the gems include an outtake from 1999's The Heavyweight Champions titled "What's Gonna Happen", an early live favorite that ended up unfinished in the studio, as well as an energizing power pop version of German Shepherd from Centuries Later, on which it sounded somewhat quirkier.

Go check them out!

Mummypowder comeback in media

September 21st 2020

Mummypowder in One Quart Magazine Mummypowder in Rumba Mummypowder in Päivän Biisit Mummypowder on Antti x Antti Podcast

One Quart Magazine features a fantastic write-up by Nick Triani on the new single, the band's songwriter Janne Lehtinen, a recounting of what turned out to be (at times) a rather gloomy experience of recording the debut album "The Heavyweight Champions", and tells about his enduring friendship with the band's members.

Spotify includes Sara's Song on their New Music Fridays and Suomi-indien Helmet playlists (topping the list for the latter!) is also enthusiastic with the release of the new single. Kiitti kaverit!

PopMatters and Rock Era Magazine both include Sara's Song on their playlists featuring best new music. Thank you! of course won't fail to mention our new single – and we're ever thankful for this wonderful blog's 19-year existence alone, not to mention appearing on its pages. Go check it out weekly for best new music.

Soundi, YleX and Music Finland all include Sara's Song on their weekly / regularly updating playlists of best new (indie) music. Thanxxx!

Päivän biisit is Aleksi Pahkala's ongoing listing of best new music across genres, featuring us as this week's cover star. Another great resource for tips on best new music to make your life better.
