Biography

Analog Mike is a Perth(via Sydney and Brisbane)-based songwriter, musician and music hobbyist.

Analog Mike's music sounds like a free-form jam played from a garage in some distant land.

Analog Mike's track Home Soon provided the soundtrack for the winning video poem entry in the 2008 Queensland Poetry Festival filmmakers challenge.

Michael Bolger spent the early 1990’s living in Perth playing original music in several indie/alternative guitar bands (Two Faces of Culture, As Is); and the mid-late nineties in a sixties garage/surf/pop band (The Hoovers) playing a mix of original songs and cult sixties covers.

After moving first to Sydney and then Brisbane an interest in writing and recording original songs and soundscapes developed.

Analog Mike blends the old and the new in these recordings, mixing analog and digital instruments and tools.

Recordings are taken from the analog domain (guitar, bass, organ ... as well as "found sounds") and messed with digitally to create new aural mysteries which can then be blended with the original source tracks, creating layers of often long sustained sounds.

Lyrics

The Voyeur

Written By: Michael Bolger

bedroom observation
from a flower bed
nervously stalks unwitting prey
scheming in his head

continually searching for
new persons to view
internet, prostitutes, neighbourhood wives
so many people to view

like you

the voyeur

work all day, busy all night
to get some satisfaction
friendly, successful business man with
nightly occupation

the voyeur

the voyeur, he is everywhere
he’s out again tonight
seeking new experiences
keeping you in his sight

in his sight

continued sexual harassment
of women he employs
continually dreaming of
little girls and boys

girls and boys

the voyeur

the voyeur he is everywhere
he’s out again tonight
seeking new experiences
adding you to his blight

to his blight

the voyeur he is everywhere
he’s out again tonight

friendly, successful business man with
nightly occupation

Home Soon
