Mickey 9s are purveyors of bass and beat. The funky Glaswegian 4-piece - with a masked, shamanic frontman known only as ‘St. Cool’ - are best-known for their infectious rhythms and electrifying live performances. In fact, the band’s shows earned them the ‘Best Live Act’ award at 2014’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
Mickey 9s have always done things in their own, irreverent way. The last couple of years have seen the band release a series of popular music videos, hilarious comic strips protesting against Thatcher, Bono, and all things evil, and regularly blowing the minds of unsuspecting gig punters all over the UK.
So now it’s album time, and Mickey 9s have done it the only way they know how – live. 'The Party Manifesto' parades all that is great about the band: driving bass rhythms, funky guitar licks, four-to-the-floor pounding beats and satirically potent lyrics. It is relentless, unapologetic, and unrefined. It is music that grabs you immediately by the earlobes; music that picks you up and shakes you about til you have no choice but to start dancing. It is music like a bomb: unpredictable, explosive, and with a hefty bass-sound.
