Mulligan is Italian, Irish, West Indi and is visually remembered with dreadlocks. Mulligan attended Birmingham Polytechnic School of Art in Margaret Street studying for a fine art degree before forming Fashion.
John Taylor of Duran Duran was deeply inspired by Mulligan and his early approach to the Birmingham scene. At the end of 2007 beginning of 2008, Luke (Sky) James, the original guitarist and singer of Mulligan's Fashion, launched a Myspace site devoted to the band. On the site James wrote of the original line-up: "2 Dead" (Davis and Cottrell) / "1 living" (James) and "1 missing" (referring to Mulligan.)
A citate of Paul Edmond's in July 2008 - the famous photographer of the early DURAN DURAN's - comes closer to the truth of Mulligan whereabouts: "Mulligan makes small films these days and is based in London".
