Biography

There are 3 bands with the name Mugwumps.

1. A Japanese punk band

The once-closed doors of the very domestic Japanese punk scene are being busted wide open with bands like the Mugwumps. True pop punk at its finest. Formed in 2004, the members are Hiroyuki Koike (Vocals/Guitar), Yoshitaka Shinmura (Vocals/Bass), and Kozo Kurosawa (Drums). Influenced by bands such as Descendents, All, Green Day, Dickies, The Muffs, but have thrown in their own elements to make their own sweet melodies

2. A pop/rock band from the 1960’s.

The Mugwumps: Zal, Denny, Jim, Cass.
The Mugwumps famously contained two future members of the Mamas & the Papas (“Mama” Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty) and one of the Lovin’ Spoonful (Zal Yanofsky). Though their first and only album is a fairly innocuous mix of early-1960s pop and R&B, it does contains some obvious hints of its members’ later musical directions in the confident and sophisticated harmonies of songs such as “Everybody’s Been Talkin’” and “Here It Is Another Day.”
