Mad Miki - Streets at Midnight 7'' (1985)

If you're a fan of garage music you may be familiar with The Fuzztones or Link Protrudi and the Jaymen. The drummer for those bands -  Miki Cezkaj -  was involved with quite a few other projects before, and during those bands.

Here's one of those projects that you won't find much information about on the world wide internet.

This is a two-man band with Mike Czekaj providing vocals, drums, and guitars, and a bass player named Tom Alexander (who may, or may not, have provided bass for a disco artist).

The A-side is an okay rock/power pop song that could grow on you over time. It's the b-side that makes this Tone and Wave fodder.
Not exactly a ska song but it does have a noticeable ska influence.

A - Streets at Midnight
B - Leaving Again
