What a terrible fucking day. It’s hardly the most important thing in the world at the minute, but Mika Miko have announced that they’re splitting up. The band announced this over the weekend, completely oblivious to the fact that i managed to miss them when they supported Black Lips a few months back.
The band had this to say for themselves (from LA Times):
“There’s no bad blood at all, we’re all still really good friends” said guitarist Michelle Suarez. “We’ve just been a band since high school and all of us are ready to move onto different things. We started the band for fun and wanted to end on a positive note.”
Which is a nice sentiment in an age where bands mainly split because they can’t get record contracts/hate each other beyond all belief, but still. We Be Xuxa was re-issued earlier this year, and it was brilliant. if you’re into the whole scene that’s bubbled along at The Smell for all these years or noise-punk sounds like your kind of thing (which it should be), then download some Mika Miko below:
