Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene Short Info

Mikey Georgeson is a painter and singer song-writer. The Sunday Times described his band David Devant & His Spirit Wife as the "future of rock and roll". Reviews for his new album 'Blood & Brambles' have been equally fulsome in their praise...

"pop album of the year thus far" the Quietus
"impish genius for melody" The Guardian
"totally enamoured and hooked on its melodic sweetness" - Monolith Cocktail
"Wonderful knock out English pop gems" - Pop Junkie
"Gorgeous, gorgeous horns blasting out like thick, treacly, sexy custard all over the aforementioned blackberries. That's right, sexy custard. Deal with it...'- Listen with Monger
"Another supreme pop nugget, and a damn sight less melancholic than Richard Hawley. – an indie folk epic" - One Good thing Each Day

The new single released on May 19th 2014 'Till It's Over' has also had some great reviews -

'‘till it’s over’ – blimey what can I say – quite possibly the most perfect thing on planet pop right now and something that ought to be tuned into immediately by all those of you who’ve lain awake at night imagining Divine Comedy rummaging through a Bacharach and David sonic cook book channelling Anthony Newley and Tony Christie, an outsider brat pack carousel dreamt up by Jarvis Cocker swirled in cabaret, big stage, big band, lush symphonic noir sophistication all drizzled in a glitzy easy pop 60’s classicism.' - God Is In The TV

'Georgeson is a natural story teller and crooner which is a rarity these days but the added indie swagger and charm really sets this apart from the crowd. Bravo, sir, bravo.' - Listen With Monger

'Crafted to perfection as always, waltzing to a happy-go-lucky European romanticised etched Billy Childish backdrop, Till It’s Over is as charismatic as you’d expect and enjoyable as you’d expect.' - Monolith Cocktail
