Mickelson “No Such Luck” – Listen

Scott Mickelson has paid some dues – his band Fat Opie were heralded as folk-rock-punks,  they played CBGB’s, the Bitter End, and Madame Wong’s West in LA.  They had the same management company as Neil Young and Tom Petty.  And then everything fell apart – the deals never went anywhere, Mickelson got sick, the band broke up.  Which makes it all the more surprising that ‘No Such Luck’ should be such a fun listen with wry laughs at life’s constant blindsiding and unexpected turns.  It’s the second single from his album ‘A Wondrous Life’, and there’s just a touch of Future Islands in the rocking singer-songwriter mix.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?

It’s spelled “Mickelson,” and the honor of experiencing his extraordinary music is in no way diminished by the small error!

Many apologies Alan, corrected now.
