Midge Ure & Mick Karn ‎– After A Fashion (1983)

Andonis Michaelides (24 July 1958 – 4 January 2011), better known as Mick Karn, was a British multi-instrumentalist musician and songwriter, who rose to fame as the bassist for the art rock/New Wave band Japan, from 1974 to 1982.

Karn released his first solo album, Titles, in November 1982, just as Japan had announced their split. In 1983, he collaborated with Midge Ure (Ultravox) on the UK top 40 single “After a Fashion”.

In June 2010, Mick Karn was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, and died in January 2011.

  1. Love this one. Already ripped the A side of my own copy, but might have a listen to the B seeing as you’ve gone to the trouble! 🙂

  2. I’m sure Mick turned up on an Ultravox album once, but have never found any evidence. Listen to When The Time Comes off the album Lament, it sticks out like a sore thumb with its fretless bass line…
