Born Derby England 1968. Family return home to Dublin 1974.. Parents are both heavily into traditional irish music. Mick makes no connection what so ever with this awful racket & from an early age is exposed to John Barry's soundtracks.. Pink floyds on the run, The radiophonic workshop's Dr who soundtrack & Vangelis's "Chung Kuo" to name but a few.. The early eighties was a bleak period for mick as he is forced to listen to his older brothers taste in music due to the lack of income & not owning his own music system.
