The surreal and beautiful beast that is Mik Artistik's Ego Trip.
Mik Artistik spouts lyrics throws straws and generally amuses himself over the top of an exquisite layer of rock, soul and punk created by partner in crime Jonny Flockton on guitar, a drum machine and one of a crack squad of bass players.
Shaun Keavaney, BBC 6Music Breakfast show presenter described the band ‘as mad as a wasp trapped under a pint glass.’ Graham Fellows aka John Shuttleworth has recorded one of Mik's songs on his new album "Weird Town". Martin Parr the world famous photographer describes them as "My favourite band on the planet". Most recently Iggy Pop has got on board playing not one but two of Mik's tunes on his Iggy Confidential BBC 6Music show .... And Keith Allen likes the band so much he has one of the bands teapots!
Praised for being a ‘hugely talented singer-songwriter and artist’ (The Observer) and for his ability to make up lyrics as he goes along drawing on observations from the crowd BBC 6Music colleague Gideon Coe said they were "the best live band I have seen all summer" after witnessing the show first hand at The Port Eliot Festival. This band brings joy ~ See them hear them touch them... and get healed.
