A Pistol In The Dock: John Lydon on Judge Judy, 1997 (via @DangerousMindsBlog)
Yep, that’s right kiddies. “New Radio” was played on last week’s episode of “Ben & Kate”. And most of the song was played. We’re glad that we could add some “rock ‘n’ roll makin’” to the evening.
apparently the Mikey Jukebox song “You’re Gonna Be Mine (Some Day)” was placed on the season premiere of New Girl last week. fun stuff…
Mikey’s “New Radio” was featured in the March 6th, 2012 episode (“Injured”) of Fox’s “New Girl” this past week. Good times…
The first release from Mike James (Longwave, The Mercies) under the Mikey Jukebox moniker, 4/14/08. Featured on ABC’s The Lying Game (2011), as an alternate title, “Gone”.
This track is featured on the “We Don’t Stop ‘til the Kids “R” Dancin’” EP.
One of the final throes for the “Mikey Jukebox” record is the “We Don’t Stop ‘til the Kids “R” Dancin’ EP.
It features “Insatiable”, also known as “Gone” and has seen recent attention for being placed on ABC’s The Lying Game, and a cassette dub of Kids “R” Dancin’ from the Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Longwave) master of the record. Back in 2007 when I first started the Jukebox recordings, my idea was that Dancin’ & Insatiable would be the first single. That never happened, but I was excited to finally sit them next together on this EP.
It also has “You’re Gonna Be Mine Someday” a song that was written in 1999, the first song I ever wrote for the first band I ever fronted, “The Blood” (whose members would end up in my post-Longwave band, “DJ Dick James/Footage”.
Rounding it out is a really get-up remix from my friend, David Lee Rad, who also played synthesizer & samples in my last band, “The Mercies”, a while back.
The Demos debut, “Lovely”, produced by Mike & The Demos, is now out on Thistime Records in Japan. Lovely…
The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side.” – Hunter S. Thompson

-there is a show booked for 4/21 in Rochester (Bug Jar), whether it’s a showcase for the new songs or an out-n-out release celebration, is to be seen.
-i also plan on releasing lots of old recorded/projects/former bands via ep’s, digitally, as it is work that was done and should be heard.
