But just when you thought it was too passe to be in a dangerous band in Chicago, along comes the perfectly sloppy and unrealistically addictive bubblegum-barf of Mickey, one of the most dazzling concoctions to grace the stage locally as of late. How this strange mix of weirdos ever came together is odd enough, but the music Mickey delivers is refreshingly perfect, trashy glam/powerpop, a la early GG Allin & the Jabbers and the Berlin Brats, played by guys that all seem to be in their own worlds, but come together like nothing you've ever witnessed. Featuring the seethingly salacious Mac Blackout as the teeny-boppin' "Juke Box Babe"-era Alan Vega figurehead, along with his zany gang of glitterous glammaries from bands such as Tentacle Lizardo, Incredible Nigga Band, and Trash & Heat, this is one bumping train of all-around punk heaven you cannot miss. --Todd Killings
