Record review: Mickey 9s – ‘Mickey 999’

This is one fantastically catchy track.

There’s some well crafted riffs in here on both slap bass and wah guitars, and the drums keep things together well and include a little cowbell for the hell of it.

The chorus is easy to remember, if a little silly, and I can see a crowd interacting well with this particular number.

It’s clear this is a song that’s more concerned about having fun than making a point.

The musicians are all up to scratch, and the tones and production are all there.

There’s nothing especially lacking about the whole package, but it’s not the strongest of songs.

Unfortunately, I can see this being stuck in my head for the rest of the day against my will.
