Micky has previously seen service in a wide and varied range of bands such as The Blood Robots, Generic, Anything But That, One By One, Ebola, and currently Jinn. Like his musical style; his writing is style is fast and furious with stories that carry the reader along to the gripping conclusion.
Micky's style is gritty fiction; he's read a lot of Bukowski, Camus, and Dickens, and, aside from spending the last 28 years playing in a range of underground bands, he's spent the last 20 years working at the pointy end of social rented housing: So let's just say he's seen quite a bit of life! He draws from all of these references in his writing; so this book is a must for anyone who has been involved in the underground hardcore, punk, or metal scenes, who has an interest in life on the road, touring bands, or the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people. Micky was interviewed in Ian Glapser's book The Day the Country Died and in his forthcoming UKHC book; Micky also hosts the Twisted Tales writing group at Red Bubble, and has a young family. Does he sleep? Were not sure! Mickys first book Blunt Wound Trauma is out now!


"Drawing on his years in the gritty DIY punk scene, & dredging up universal memories of bleak, grey childhoods, Micky McGuinness has penned a deliciously grim and nihilistic collection of hard-nosed crime fiction, peopled with the sort of realistically nasty characters we might all have grown up with living next door to us... shining a light into the darkest recesses of the subconcious where REVENGE is king, this is an impressively memorable body of believable work that will stay with you long after the last bloody act of retribution has splattered the final page..." --Ian Glasper author of Burning Britain & The Day The Country Died.
