Mongrel released their first album Better Than Heavy on the 7th March 2009. The content of their music is political, with the majority of their songs having lyrics which challenge government issues. The band have announced they will play a show at London's Boston Arms on November 5, with a four track digital EP due for release the same day. Released on the Wall of Sound label, the EP feature debut track "The Menace".
For the album, McClure stated "We had Saul Williams come in and do a thing on it and hopefully M.I.A. is going to do something and maybe Pete Doherty. It's got a good flavour... We're really taking a few people to task, kind of like we're Public Enemy or something." In an interview with The Guardian, McClure also expressed a desire to record in Venezuela and work with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez for the band's second album..
