Mickyfin Put Pieces In Puzzle

Who: Mickyfin, Iota and the Lizard Men
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Saturday November 20, 2004

NEWCASTLE progressive rock act MICKYFIN will finally launch its debut EP this weekend.

The launch will take place at the CAMBRIDGE HOTEL on Saturday night for the new seven-track EP Pieces in The Puzzle .

It was recorded with the help of ARIA-winning producer STEVE JAMES, whose credits include the SEX PISTOLS and YOU AM I, after the band caught his eye last year.

The final result is a whirling soundscape of progressive rock and strong vocals by frontman and chief songwriter JOSH BOWYER. Mickyfin's launch is anticipated to be a memorable event as it combines Russian theatre, an interactive video installation, moody soundscapes and the premiere of the band's new video.

The band teamed with director JIM LOUNSBURY and producer JANET BLUNDEN last month to work on the video with AFI Award-winning cinematographer ANTHONY JENNINGS. It was shot in Newcastle and will be premiered on Saturday, followed by a performance from Mickyfin.

``The band are really excited about putting together a huge launch,'' Bowyer said.

``It's great to work with such a talented and enthusiastic group of people who are so motivated to make concepts such as this clip and the EP launch happen.'' It will be a fitting farewell for Mickyfin as the band prepares to swap Newcastle in favour of Melbourne's flourishing live scene.

After overcoming the distraction of university studies, Mickyfin's Bowyer, STEW TAYLOR, ANDREW ROSTAS and JOEL STANTON have set their focus on the band and hope to tackle the international scene.

Pieces in the Puzzle is set for national release through MGM and TENDERHOOK RECORDS on Saturday, with tracks from the EP already receiving airplay on Sydney radio station FBI. Mickyfin's EP launch will be followed by a performance from IOTA AND THE LIZARD MEN. Doors open at 8pm.
