ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Skinny Millionaires set sail in 2008. What started out
as a solo project for lead singer Mikey Millionaire after years
of playing punk and rock n’ roll in Seattle, Mikey wanted to
show that he had more to offer, thus developing into a modern
brand of brooding, Dylanesque, folk-noir fused with a few
distortion laden punk rock n roll tunes. Eleven years and two
albums later, after severe blows including being brutally
stabbed on stage, Mikey boarded an international pleasure
cruiser and landed on the runway of Mikey Millionaires home
haven, Newport, Rhode Island, USA - an island on the East
Coast where music isn’t a fashion statement, but rather a
survival tool. Surrounded by ocean, the sea is an ever present
character in every Newport saga. Newport is, after all, known
for being the sailing capitol of America, as well as a
playground for the upper crust of olde. But between the gilded
mansions, a brooding Don Juan in Tweed was in the wind,
alone, and forging a new sound. Much like some sordid strain
of creature from The Galapagos Islands, The Skinny
Millionaires evolved in secret at their home base of
Millionaire Manor. But they had to learn to fly if they were
eventually going to escape and share their gift with the world.
But this was no easy task. Mikey had to learn how to play
every instrument, record it properly, do graphics and videos,
etc…all on his own. But what does that make him now? Self
sufficient. The kind of person who could release a new single
every month, as the music business of modern times is leaning
more towards this business model.
2019 - the band has reinvented itself as a hybrid of Tony
Clifton, the sleazy lounge-lizard and kindred spirit that helped
Andy Kaufman make audiences question everything they
thought to be true, and di Caprio-esque Frank Abagnale, they
are the poster children for doing your own thing, making it
look sexy, and sounding like original, fresh hard rock with an
intelligent brain. Mike can draw from his huge experience
with playing with international underground surf-punk rock n
´roll icons, the Turbo ACS, whom he still tours the world with.
Don’t expect a stock factory band, this is a band that
knows to entertain: The Captain and crew firmly believe that
live shows should be done in the style of dynamic frontmen
like Iggy Pop, were unpredictability is one of the last musical
puzzle pieces that can’t be homogenized and stolen. As
frontman Mikey puts it - “as it is, I’ve played naked, worn
nothing but duct tape on stage, blew fireballs, lit myself on fire
– been stabbed, dove into drums, hung from ceilings,
whatever. These kind of live shows will never be able to be
replicated by ripping it from Youtube“. Indeed. Mike has
garnered fans such as pop star Elle King, and when he’s not
playing the part of Kurt at Nirvana reunions, Deer Tick’s John
McCauley lends vocals to The Skinnies’ first album.
What makes people who have already have legions of
fans pawing at them stop and notice The Skinny Millionaires?
That would be Mikey’s secret weapon - his songwriting
ability. Even the scorching rock tunes still have a clear sense
of melody and catchiness. While other artists seem to be
languishing with the hordes of one-trick ponies, Mikey can
hand you a radio hit out of his back pocket, and then step on
stage and spew out a piece of his soul with a blistering rock
show that places the audience in the palm of his hand.
Together with his bandmates Luis (Bass), Sloop
Hannah (Drums) they are all multi-faceted artists set to bring their stories
of distant shores to the world. Although seemingly quiet in the
last few years, behind the scenes the band has been busy. The
Skinnies are finishing up a new album and all passengers will
soon be welcome aboard. Please fasten your seat belts and
prepare for take-off. You’re in for the ride of your life.
