Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The '86 Angels started out in July of 2010 as a punk rock/hardcore band consisting of Mike, Mike's drum machine, Mike's keyboard and his 3 guitars. There were 2 self-produced EP's released on Bandcamp during this time that weren't very well received...Not that they were bad, quite the contrary, it's just that not many people received them.
After being hit directly in the eye by one of the lasers in Blue Oyster Cult's live show and the epiphany/awakening that took place as a result, Mike decided to take T86A in a new direction.
"My eye really fucking hurts, Man."
Mike likens the music that T86A creates now to a midwife stealing an oar off of a yacht and beating a Sherpa within an inch of his life because of the Sherpa's belief in monsters...and I think also because of the dirty language he used when addressing his Aspergers-afflicted German Shepard, or maybe some kind of palsy. It's family-friendly music with a positive message that will probably make your friends horny.
