The Philanthropists - ‘I Love Micky’
Guitar - Micky
Bass, vocals, lyrics -Georgey
Recorded & mixed by George Gargan
Mastered by Matthew Barnhart at The Echo Lab Denton
“I Love Micky” features Michael playing a pretty riff on guitar that George heard and thought “I can do something over the top of that”. George added bass and the story of his friendship with Michael - including how he first saw him play in his band Lazarus Clamp (that George would later join). George recounts, “I bought him a pint of Guinness stating he’d restored my faith in British music.” The two played together in Lazarus Clamp for 3 years making three albums together ... and the rest is recounted in this song!
Back in the mid 90s, when I was in my early 20s, I had tough times dealing with depression bouts and diminished will to live. Shonen Knife, a new discovery for me then, was the only thing that would make me feel better at times, and my go to band for that purpose. I love the band ever since, and Adventure is one of their greats. I've been listening to Imi (emoji) non-stop for the past few days! aya_vnv
