Mike TV Bio:
Let's start at the start because that's always the best place to start. Mike TV are clearly better than 30 Seconds To Mars and Scouting For Girls but are no way as good as Fearless Vampire Killers. Now that's cleared up, let's move on with the boring showy-off stuff before we go all stupid again at the end. Larry Livermore once described them as "one of England's better pop-punk bands" and he invented Green Day, so that's really good. Here we go.
Mike TV (formerly Pickled Dick) have been on two highly successful tours of China, several trips round Europe (including one amazing gig in Finland, where only ten people came and the band took them all to the pub after). They're released two critically acclaimed albums and several E.Ps - all recorded by uber-producer and dressing gown fashionista - Peter Miles. They've also had album releases in Japan and China, tours with the likes of Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, Sonic Boom Six, Random Hand, The Dickies, Guttermouth, The Flatliners, Uncommon Men From Mars, Chixdiggit, CJ Ramone and Useless I.D. This has put them somewhere near the top of the imaginary punk rock pile. Mike TV is currently composed of Domb Thumb (lead pop smith and occasional Oliver Reed impressionist), Jhon Cosgrove (Cunt Dine With Me), Glyn Mellor (someone please fuck him) and Richie Cooper (handsome new guy, has an army of children). Domb and Jhon once had a fight in Morrisons in Newcastle and Jhon ripped Domb's Ramones shirt - the tearing caused modern day punk rock to fall apart… that is until the new Mike TV album is released next year.
Mike TV is currently solving the world's problems by playing cricket and football, gardening, writing new songs, eating ice- cream and hotdogs, having terrible sex, going for meals with loved ones, getting too old to play this kind of music, fingering, regretting using the phrase 'fingering' because they're getting too old to play this kind of music, sorting a new album, and playing some shows.
