“Poetry in motion…Obsessive and compulsive Art-Pop” Louder than War
Micko Westmoreland offers up a brimming box of remix delights with the release of ‘Remixes’ on Landline Records on August 12. featuring the skills of Luke Vibert, Mike Paradinas, T Power, Ian O’Brien and a clutch of mixes by Micko himself.
The first time these tracks have been made available in digital form, it also features a never before released full length version of Si Begg remix of ‘Tigons and Liger’ which originally surfaced in truncated form on his John Peel session EP in 2003.
The remix album, which features remixes of tracks from his two solo albums ‘Yours etc abc‘ and ‘Wax & Wayne’ and the two albums Micko released before that under his electronic moniker The Bowling Green, has been compiled to coincide with the launch of Bowling Green albums ‘One Pound Note’ and ‘Fabrications’, appearing in digital form for the first time also on August 12.
Micko’s most recent album ‘Yours etc abc’ was released last year in a sumptuous vinyl gatefold package as well as digitally. Voted one of 2015’s Top 100 albums by Louder Than War, it was also praised by key online tastemakers such as God Is In The TV (“evoking memories of troubled childhoods and the tremulous insecurities of youth”). It features such luminary musical contributors as Mickey Gallagher from the Blockheads on keyboards, Mark Bedford from Madness on bass, Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Gallon Drunk, Tony Visconti’s Holy Holy) on trumpet and Phil Wilkinson (Jake Bugg) on drums.
