MICK MILK was the early 80's musical outlet of DIY-synth master and guitarist Mick M., back then hailing from New York City, USA. Basically equipped with a Korg MS-20 & MS-10, Casiotone 202, Boss DR-55, Roland TR-606 and other recording gear and effect units, Mick recorded a few dozen of incredibly amazing tracks which cannot be described other than superbly creative in terms of using analogue synthesisers for sound design and song arrangement in electronic pop music while adding brilliant and unique vocal moments to the whole. Even though his music was almost abnormally rich in ideas and both technical and playing skills, proper comparisons are other representatives of the weirder kind of electronic pop music and ahead-of-their-times projects such like Richard Bone, Our Daughter's Wedding, John Bender or Der Plan and Devo. In 1982, Mick recorded his one and only vinyl release, "Half Life" for Cyclops Records (CY-903), a 12" single which also featured famous names Man Parrish and Raul A. Rodriguez as producers. For the album "Half Lives", Anna Logue Records has carefully selected and compiled the 14 most obscure, electronic and label-fitting tracks from his demo tape "Songs for Citizens (1982)" and a batch of previously unreleased tracks from 1982-83. Mastered by Mick himself (with a final touch by A.P) and another brilliant artwork by Steve Lippert, this release marks another true highlight in the Anna Logue Records catalogue.

Features: limited edition, 180 grams (soy) milk-white 12" vinyl with Hansaboard outer sleeve and printed inner sleeve (with photos, lyrics, infos), black vinyl 7" with generic protective sleeve, DIN A3 colour poster and DIN A6 colour postcard, additional protective outer sleeves for the LP sleeve.

Released on 2012 by Anna Logue Records.
