Mugshot Mic Biography

Mugshot Mic is the latest project to come from Mike House a.k.a. Syco Mike. Mugshot Mic is 100% high voltage and brings it live! Syco Mike brings the intensity and energy that makes punk, punk, performing every song as if it would be the last he ever performs. House started singing and formed his first band in Austria called Clot Of Snot (91-93). House then moved on to join Lewa (94-96). House and his best friend Wax formed the band Mugshot-76 (96-08). In 2008 Mike joined Pipes And Pints bringing along his songs from Mugshot-76 for P&P's records. Pipes And Pints were then nominated for a Grammy in 2008, and also 2012. In 2016 House parted ways with Pipes And Pints, moving back to Southern California shortly afterwards he formed Mugshot Mic. In this group House joined forces with Ronnie King (Rancis, Pennywise, Offspring, NOFX) on Keyboard. The team began collaborating at McConaghy's Eravox Studios and began tracking. Shortly later Chip Hanna joined the pair playing Drums (US Bombs, One Man Army, and The Berlin Three). Shawn Smash then joined the group, playing Guitar, and the last to become a member was Alejandro Taranto of Tommy Gun Records fame, playing Bass Guitar. An absolutely stellar combination of world renowned artist pooling their talents, began creating their new album Life Is A Song! The new album brings the same passion and energy, that Punk Rock that fans are drawn to. Sourcing both new and old songs the group began creating a totally new sound on Life Is A Song, producing an end result only this group of talented musicians could. Mugshot Mic draws from life experiences creating the poetry, and instilling the intensity within their music, while always remaining true to all things Punk Rock.
