Micah P. Hinson has a new band for his new album – ‘When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You’ is credited to Micah P. Hinson and the Musicians of the Apocalypse. The band is actually anonymous – they’re all early influences on Micah P. Hinson and they helped record the album in a space of 24 hours and then, out of respect for the album’s inspiration, the silent and unknown carved statues of musicians that adorn part of the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, they chose to go uncredited. In the cathedral the musicians surround St. James – inferring that Micah P. Hinson stands in the same position relative to his band as a musical martyr. Micah P. Hinson has hardly shied away from controversy and sometimes difficult allusions – and also a lot more than allusions in a life spotted with incidents including a severe back injury, a violent road accident, a love for drugs, a hate of drugs, time spent behind bars and more. He is a compelling artist, not someone you’re likely to always agree with, an inventive lyricist and a libertarian to what can seem to be the point of idiocy. A bundle of contradictions. Micah P. Hinson will now sing for you.
