Summary The list of bands Mick Houghton worked with in an illustrious career in the music business reads like a Who's Who of some of the greatest, most influential and downright dyfunctional cult groups of the post-punk era and beyond - Ramones, Talking Heads, The Undertones, The Jesus and Mary chain, Fely, Sonic Youth, The Wedding Present, Spiritualized and Elastica among them. Often sidestepping the major trends in music, his reputation for attracting outsiders led him to working with artists a disparate as Sun Ra, Andrew Oldham, Ken Kesey, Bert Jansch, Stereolab, Mercury Rev and Gorki's Zygotic Mynci.
