History

The Mentalist Collective originally formed in 2008 under the name The Mentalists. Prior to this, Brendan Christie performed in Dunedin ska band The 'Bones from 2003-2009 as lead singer and guitarist, whilst Scott Campbell and Seamus McCarthy were known for their bands DC Kremlin, The Burns, and Yule and the Thundercats. http://thementalistcollective.bandcamp.com/album/chicks-dig-ska Brendan joined the two enthusiastic song writers Scott and Seamus and shortly after released an EP "Here is a Tree, Where is the Sun?" http://thementalistcollective.bandcamp.com/album/this-is-a-tree-where-is-the-sun At the end of 2008/early 2009, Seamus went to Auckland to study creative design, and Brendan went to London, eventually joining Latin Mestizo Ska band Reverso on lead guitar and releasing the album 'Radio Comfort'. http://reversomusica.com/ Brendan returned to Dunedin in 2012 and returned to songwriting with Scott and Rob Milne.
