Mikey's bit of paper says that the new Shine EP is released on Weds 5th November 2014 and he wants you to know that if you pre-order the track from his Bandcamp page https://mikeygeorgeson.bandcamp.com/  pop-Z will give you an extra download track of 'Beautiful/Moth In The Flame' on release day.   His bit of paper also says to pick up his dry cleaning, but that's not really of relevance here.  ...

Monolith Cocktail review for 'Till It's Over'

'Hot on the heels of, perhaps one of the Monolith’s favourite singles of 2014, ‘My Heroine’, and the equally delightful witty pastoral pop of the Blood & Brambles LP that spawned it, is this latest twee paean, ‘Till It’s Over’. Wistfully capturing Neil Hannon’s Divine Comedy and The Bonzo Dog Do-Dah Band, the reincarnated Deviant and progenitor of some of the Britpop and later period’s most esoterically humorous bands, has one...

'Till It's Over - The Sunday Experience review

Getting beyond the ridiculous now for here’s another drop dead dansette dandy this time courtesy of Mikey Georgeson and the Civilised Scene. The fourth single via pop-z by all accounts which for us depressingly means we’ve missed three thus far but hey ho there’s the promise of three more in the forthcoming three months. Is this dude mad or what. ‘till it’s over’ – blimey what can I say –...

'Till It's Over' - Listen With Monger review

Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene - Till It's Over (Popianosz Recorded Words & Sounds Ltd)  Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene Release Date: 19th June 2014 You can't beat a man in a neat moustache (seriously, it's illegal) and Mr Mikey Georgeson has a beautifully smart bit of face fuzz.

'Curtains of Zagra' - the new single and animated film from Mikey Georgeson

This amazing animated film is the result of a continuing collaboration between Mikey Georgeson and animator Martin Pickles to give visual expression to the opening track from the 'Blood & Brambles' album. Riding the coincidental trail that swept them along Mikey and Martin conceived the film as a unconscious audio visual voyage. "We met over a four month period at the BFI discussing stuff like Jung’s Man and his Symbols...

The Quietus' Aug Stone - 'Blood & Brambles' review

This is my pop album of the year thus far. Mikey Georgeson, aka David Devant & His Spirit Wife's The Vessel aka Mr. Solo, is back with a new outfit, The Civilised Scene. They kicked things off in 2012 with the excellent 'Moth In Flame' / 'Bringing Rocks Back From The Moon' EP (a radio version of the former seeming to leave Marc Riley speechless at its conclusion), and Blood & Brambles has...

Listen With Monger - 'Blood & Brambles' review

Well here's a man who likes long a long band name. Currently trading under the name Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene, the main man used to be at the helm of David Devant and His Spirit Wife. Names aside, however, here is also a man who likes to make quality music over quantities of music which is a delight when you get down to listening to this album, 'Blood...

Pop Junkie - 'Blood & Brambles' review

'Mikey Georgeson, aka David Devant, Mr Solo and various other nom de plumes, boasts a pretty amazing track record of producing knock out English pop gems that mix early Roxy with music hall and splash of Syd Barrett. Blood and Brambles, his first album for ages, is yet another reason why he really ought to be number one in someparallel pop universe. A wonderful glorious pot pourri of wonderfully weird pop...
