Mundell, a self-taught guitar player who grew up in New Jersey . A founding member of the band The Atomic Bitchwax, he later joined Monster Magnet as lead guitarist in 1992.  His first recorded appearance with the band was 1993's Superjudge album. In the span of 18 years he played on seven Monster Magnet albums in total between 1992 and 2010. He left Monster Magnet in 2010 to "collaborate with new producers, songwriters and musicians". 
Baskenland is this band’s first LP, after just an EP and a cassette, and it showcases everything in a really promising experimental group. If this is step one, then I’m very much looking forward to the progression of El Yunque.
