Fresh Meat Monday - Mickey 9s

Would you care to introduce yourself?

Mickey 9s. Superheroes by day, funksters by night.

How would you describe the music you make?

It's like funk, only funkier.

How did you start out making music?

It all started just after the war years, my brother Jimi was just back from the front and the family had little to share round the table; many folk forget that the rationing continued long after the armistice. To provide for my family I decided to become a deep-sea marine biologist. I planned to rake in the riches of the briny deep. While out in my submarine I found a mask at the bottom of a sharp oceanic ravine. When I put on this mask, I formed the band that has been known ever since as Mickey 9s. The rest is ahistorical.

What process goes into the way you write songs?

We have two books. One, The Giant Book of Bass, t'other, Tupper's Book of Proverbial Philosophy. These are not e-books, nay, but pulpus veritas. While watching an episode of Planet Earth we each rip a page out of the respective books and eat it. Once this has been watered down with some buckfast, we begin to write songs.

What can people expect from your live shows?

Visions of a prehistoric future.

What are you all listening to at the moment?

The Orcadian Sea. (Not a band, but a body of water.) Far out.

What can we expect to see/hear from you in the future?

More music videos, a comic book strip of the band's superheroic exploits, a few new singles, and we should be playing some festivals this summer but we can't tell you which yet because that would be illegal. You can find out more from our Facebook or our website.
