Celebrating Mike's brand new album "Hammond Voice" (we had as advanced playing last year at MRUK) this is not a "best of", just the tracks I played at the CSS in the past, sequenced it for an enjoyable aural experience. We fly back in time from Mike's first band, Four By Art, to its logical continuation, Investigators, to the Alex Loggia (Statuto) leaded Il Santo (imho the best italian band at the time) and Mister Tokio & The Beat Goes On, and of course a few rarities and oddities you'll not find on record, including live takes by Mike Painter & The Family Shakers, I (badly) managed in the early 2ks. The new album with the wonderful Viola Road is represented here by 2 tracks. The pic I took this morning at home is my vinyl copy spinning on my old turntable. Buy it at www.mikepainter.net ! This cloudcast is dedicated to the memory of my cousin Davide.
