Mick Farren biography
MICK FARREN began his musical career with the early UK psych band "the SOCIAL DEVIANTS" (later renamed "the DEVIANTS.") Farren was kicked out of the band about 3 years after they began, which is when he recorded his first solo album "Mona, the Carnivorous Circus." The lineup was an early version of his next band the "Pink Faries." After this album was released it seemed as if Farren had retired from the music industry. He took a long break to pursue his writing and journalist careers (big on science fiction novels and political commentary.) In 1976 Farren went back to music writing for the band MOTORHEAD. This sparked Farren's musical career once again and he had recorded the solo EP "Screwed Up." His second solo album "Vampires Stole My Lunch Money" was released in 1978. Farren collaborated with ex-MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer for a live CD in 1984 (as the Deviants) and later they recorded a musical about a gangster named Dutch Schultz called "Who Shot You Dutch?" in 1987. In the 90s Farren had recorded a number of spoken-word albums which are either hit or miss, depending on the listener's appreciation of the spoken-word in music.

Farren's first solo album is definitely his most interesting. Sounds of all kinds are included such as clowns, acrobats, lion tamers and many other things that you would expect to find at a circus. The album is the beginning of Psych is every sense of the word. The most notable is the two-part 28 minute title track. "Vampires Stole My Lunch Money" was a much more commerical affair (but still, not commercial by any means) when compared with "Mona." "Vampires Stole My Lunch Money" has a more rock edge sound when compared to the pure psychedelia that Farren had previously played.

Overall, Farren's first solo album is a must hear. The Deviants were among one of the beginning bands in the UK psych scene and Farren's first album definitely develops the genre and pushes things forward. It might not be the easiest listen, but it sure is an interesting one. His other solo works are interesting, but don't own up to the brilliance displayed in the "Carnivorous Carnival."
