R.I.P...

Micky Mike



Real name. Marcel Thiel.

Died, age 52, on 23rd of May 2009 in a Brussels hospital from complications after surgery and a long history of health problems.

Snowy Red was the one-man electronic band of the former Chainsaw guitarist, Micky Mike. With the "Vision" LP and some tracks on the "The Beat Is Over" LP, Snowy Red was, for a brief moment only, a band. After the Belgian New Beat boom, Snowy Red called it quits and Micky Mike disappeared, only for the band to resurface again in 2004 as a duo (with a guitarist) at the Belgian Independent Music festival.

He gave us the classic synth jam Euroshima.

Sorry for the silly vid, but it is sometimes mesmerising.
