Mickey Zero

Experimentalist Post-PunkYears ago, we stumbled on Mickey Zero‘s music on MP3.com. Mickey’s post-punk minimalist style captivated us. For his personal “Mickey Zero” projects, he uses synthesizers, drum machines, and spoken words creating a uniquely alternative experimental sound.

Mickey states his influences include The Stooges, Velvet Underground and other early punk innovators. He started out at the University of Chicago in the early 1980’s in a punk band called Dumb Ra. Unless things have changed recently, he currently resides in France. Besides his solo work, he is involved in side projects with SuperX and Zoorama with whom he sings and plays guitar.

Mickey has posted videos of various projects on Youtube and MySpace. Also, take some time to listen to older stuff on Soundclick.

We brought you a couple of delicacies for a listen. These are two oldies but very goodies.  The first is Mickey’s pre-millennial piece of nihilism called “Suicide ’99.”

And now, here’s a pretty and simple little thing called “Naked.”
