About Mick Ness

Based in Amsterdam. 

Mick Ness started his musical career at 18 years old, influenced by groups of the late 70s such as Joy Division, The Pop Group and Vini Reilly.

At the beginning of the 80s Ness was one of the driving forces of the Dutch post punk movement Ultra that produced a massive amount of energetic, experimental avant-garde music.

Ness later joined Hungarian rock band Sexepil as their front man. They toured Europe and America extensively and performed as the opening act for the Sugercubes on their European tour.

After leaving Sexepil in 2006 he joined the new wave band MECANO as composer and guitarist and also started to make music for film.

In 2014 Ness joined Amsterdam Post Punk band STAKBABBER with whom he regularly has gigs.

In 2017 Ness produced “Madhouse Promenade” being the first album on his own label studio frog. He performed this album as supporting act for Gary Numan’s concert in Amsterdam.

 In October 2018 its successor, an album based on disco beats called “DISKO” is released.

Both are concept albums based on a theme that Ness deeply admires, polar expeditions of 19th and early 20th century. 

What makes his music distinctive is a gloomy yet positive melancholy ambient and the lyrical new wave sound which tells a story very much like a road movie.
