Snowy Red

Classed in the Belgian New Beat scene.

Apparentely Micky Mike made after his Snowy Red period, one or two LP's with covers.
At this moment Micky Mike is completely out of the music scene.

According to Dirk Ivens (Dive, Klinik) when asked byJurgen

Micky Mike played the guitar in the Belgian band "La Cosa Nostra" before 1986
