„Like a Mancunian Moon Dog, Steer has been a key player in the city’s musical underground since the late 1980s having played in the post punk band Biting Tongues with Graham Massey. He would also reappear with Massey in a touring version of 808 State and Toolshed. He was in the soul group Yargo, whose song ‚The Other Side Of Midnight‘ was the theme tune to Tony Wilson’s Granada TV show of the same name, not to mention live bassist in Justin Robertson’s Lionrock and as a member of the Ninja Tune act Homelife, who released six albums between 1998 and 2009.“
“sounds like a Swiss cuckoo clock made of egg boxes and horsehair, glued together by an African Moog player in a Vietnamese iron monger’s shop”. (Graham Massey, 808 State)
Born 1968 in Cologne, vocalist Mik Quantius has been singing with famous and unfamous musicians for 40 years now – mostly in improvisation. He has been touring through Europe, the US and Indonesia. Since 15 years Mik also performs solo with various instruments.
„I always like to sing free. There’s too much information these days. You forget about the basics.“
