Mike Marlin has ripped through 2011 being chosen as HMV 'Next Big Thing', releasing his debut album 'Nearly Man', touring the UK twice, singing disco with dwarves, smashing an office to pieces and vanishing for 3 months, only to emerge triumphant with another 11 songs recorded in a basement and mastered in Abbey Road.
Mike had 50 years to make his first record, and a reactionary quarter of a year to make the follow up album 'Man On The Ground'. Working with producer Catherine Marks (known for her work with Alan Moulder & Flood on artists including The Vaccines, Interpol, Foals and PJ Harvey), Marlin recorded as he wrote, creating an album with widescreen scope and its heart on its sleeve.
