Mickyfin Tackle Old Material With Line-up of Fresh Faces



Who: Mickyfin
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Friday May 24, 2002

THE new-look Mickyfin will make its comeback with a show at the Northern Star Hotel on Friday night.

The melodic four-piece has been rehearsing with two new members after the loss of drummer Alan Hofer and bassist Adam Duggan. New members Josh Salter and Sam Reynolds joined the group in November and have been refining old material and working on new originals.

Mickyfin has continued to incorporate a strong use of melody on new tracks, pointing out that the key to a good track is melody.

'I'm a firm believer that songs need a definitive structure like a piece of classical music, otherwise it loses its right to be known as a song,' frontman Josh Bowyer said.

Bowyer, the key songwriter in the band, said new material from george and Silverchair was similar to the way in which Mickyfin liked to create music.

And with the introduction of Salter and Reynolds, the band has brought new elements to its sound.

'The new members shine a new light on the older music as they are again from different musical backgrounds, while still maintaining Mickyfin's general music direction,' he said.

Mickyfin will perform with Supersonic on Friday night.

Underage fans can look out for Mickyfin when they perform a number of lunchtime concerts at local schools to raise money for the new Leukaemia Foundation in Newcastle.
