Biography

A CELLARFUL OF MUCK is the latest release from MUCK AND THE MIRES.
This band hails from NEW England, yet features a distinctly 1960’s England sound and songwriting style. Legendary Runaways producer KIM FOWLEY (who also produced several of the group’s tracks), describes them as “The 1964 Beatles Meets The Ramones”.

On A CELLARFUL OF MUCK, the group has teamed with producer JIM DIAMOND (White Stripes) at his famed all-analog Ghetto Recorders Studio in Detroit, Michigan. The resulting 13 tracks feature high energy Detroit grit combined with some of the catchiest tunes to hit magnetic tape in literally decades.

The opening track, “King of the Beat”, is an anthem for every pub band dreaming of stardom. “Saturday Let Me Down Again” rocks like a lost AM radio hit, and, really, what could be more more garage rock than a love/hate relationship song entitled “Love Hates Me”?

MUCK AND THE MIRES have built an incredibly successful career over the past decade. After gaining national attention as the winners of Little Steven Van Zandt’s battle of the garage bands on MTV, the band was signed to Dionysus Records before setting up shop with Dirty Water records (London), producing several albums now considered “garage rock” classics.

Along the way, the group has had the opportunity to perform/tour around the globe with many of their influences and heroes; in Europe with The MC5 and Kinks front man Ray Davies, and in the USA with The New York Dolls, The Bay City Rollers, Pete Best (The Beatles) Bo Diddley and DIck Dale.
