This is Mickey’s first album release of new recordings in nearly forty years. That’s quite some time. Just think what you were up to forty years ago and what’s happened to you since! He is quite often referred to as the godfather of pub rock and was once referred to as a “white Chuck Berry” by a DJ.Mickey has been active in music since 1963, although there have been longish spells where he took a step back away from any potential limelight. It is fair to say that he didn’t have any great commercial success in any case, due partly to bad luck but a distrust of authority, an ambivalent attitude to fame, and a struggle with the pressures of recording and public performance majorly contributed too. But commercial success is not necessarily the same as artistic success. The 1970’s rise in the pub-rock genre saw him appreciated by the likes of Dr Feelgood, with whom he had a successful association, writing the band’s 1978 hit Down At The Doctors. His songs have also been recorded by Rick Nelson, Elkie Brooks, the Judds, Chris Farlowe, Delbert McClinton, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Gary Brooker, the Hamsters, Roger Chapman, and the Searchers. Guitarist Wilko Johnson considers him to be “the best white singer I’ve ever heard”. Mickey has had a consistent solo career, with albums released on big labels such as A&M, Chrysalis & Stiff, but surprisingly sales success never really materialised, despite having worked with producers as varied as Nick Lowe, Mike Vernon, Godley & Crème, Tony Visconti, Gary Brooker, Francis Rossi & the Sutherland Brothers.
