Anyone who knows the Scottish music scene will tell you that Mickey 9s are one of the most exciting bands to see live. The irreverent four piece from Glasgow combines elements of dance, punk and disco into a blistering, genre-defying groove that sends crowds into a frenzy.
It all started when four young lads went to see Daft Punk at a music festival and promptly decided that this was the kind of music they wanted to make. Upon returning home, the boys ditched their guitars and bought cheap synthesisers, hoping to join the electronic renaissance that was happening in the UK at the time.
After countless nights of basslines, bleeps, buzzes and beats in the rehearsal studio and on the dancefloors of Sub Club and the Soundhaus, it became clear to the band that their new idea wasn't working. The electro songs they wrote lacked the energy, momentum and emotion that the 9s wanted to unleash upon the venues of their home city.
So, the question was thus: How to combine the ‘perfection’ of dance music with the raw energy of a rock 'n' roll band?
Fortunately for these lads, the answer was simple. The guitars reappeared just as quickly as they had gone, and the synths were sold on eBay.
And the result?
Well, it's somewhere between 'Post-Funk' and 'Evil Disco'.
This year will see Mickey 9s take their incredible show on the road to support the release of their third and The Scottish Album of the Year Award 2022 Eligible album; Modern Kunst.
