“[Sweet Leaf of The North] my favourite song of the last decade” Iggy Pop
Hugely popular Leeds-based trio Mik Artistik’s Ego Trip are well known for their unique live performances and madcap antics deeming every performance not just a gig, but a truly momentous event. So much so that they have been entertaining the Glastonbury Festival for the last 11 years*. Some say Glastonbury hasn’t really started until they’ve seen one of Mik’s multiple performances.
Mik spouts poetic verse, creates chaos, plays air-crook lock (!), and all-out entertains over the top of an exquisite layer of rock, soul, funk, and punk created by multi-instrumentalist Jonny Flockton on electric guitar, mandolin, banjo, and ukelele.
They have over recent years established themselves as festival favourties having performed at many of the major UK festivals, including Boomtown Fair, Latitude, Bearded Theory, Beat Herder, Wilderness, Beautiful Days, as well the last 7 Port Eliot Festivals.
BBC Radio 6Music have long been playing Mik’s music with Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins, Shaun Keaveny and Tom Robinson all big fans of the band.
In December last year no-less that rock icon and 6Music presenter Iggy Pop endorsed Mik’s anthem of hope ‘Sweet Leaf of the North’ as his favourite song of the last DECADE!.
