Down Under Rays, Down There You Can't Be Saved

No time for a full post right now, but I just found out the worst news ever.

Local legends Mika Miko are breaking up.

At such a seemingly odd time, too: After almost six years of being together and after having only released their second full-length LP a few months ago.

At the same time though, it seems reasonable. The girls have grown up a lot since they started the band and are ready to to now start their lives. The news is unfortunate, but I think that Mika Miko will always be remembered as the band that sparked and spearheaded, not just the efforts of The Smell, but a new creativity and energy to the Los Angeles punk and DIY scene. They will be missed.

See you all in 30 years at the reunion show,
