That article ran in early 2004. And only today did I get a press release saying that a band had finally hired Mingering Mike to produce art for one of its records. How did that not happen sooner? Seriously, everybody, the next time someone discovers an absolutely brilliant artist making obsessive, mind-blowing fake LPs, let's try to get a record cover out of him in less than six years.
The band in question, Kings Go Forth, fittingly make the kind of high-energy throwback soul that sounds like what Mingering Mike might've recorded if he'd cut any of his songs in a proper studio with actual instruments. Way to go, Kings Go Forth. You did something extremely cool that should have happened literally years ago.
