We’re delighted to welcome back Mik and the band — they’ve been here 3 times before, and if you haven’t seen him yet, make sure you get here this time. His shows are gorgeous, hilarious, poignant, a bit surreal (in a good way) and simply not like anyone else. Very Highly Recommended!
“[Sweet Leaf of The North] my favourite song of the last decade” Iggy Pop
Mik spouts lyrics, creates chaos, plays air-crook lock(!), and all-out entertains over the top of an exquisite layer of rock, soul, funk, and punk created by partner in crime Jonny Flockton on guitar. The band delights and unnerves audiences across the country in equal measure, and has become one of the most interesting, unpredictable, and exciting acts that most people have ever witnessed.
The true beauty of the band is that they appeal to a huge cross section of music audience, and never fail to get people involved, singing along, dancing, and laughing. The band has an obsessive following built from appearances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Latitude, Festival No6, Wilderness, Beautiful Days, Boomtown, Beat Herder, and Bearded Theory. Before its demise Port Eliot Festival invited the band back year after year. The band has appeared at the last 14 Glastonbury Festivals, where they play multiple shows across multiple stages over the 5 days.
