We are proud to bring you the Speed of Life produced video for BP Fallon & David Holmes' musical tribute to guitarist Henry McCullough. Released on the Late Night Tales record label as part of their David Holmes album, 'Henry McCullough' was also remixed by Andrew Weatherall for Record Store Day 2017.
The name and music of Mic Christopher reached a new audience in 2005 with the posthumous use of his song 'Hey Day' in a Guinness advert with Michael Fassbender.
Those who heard Mic sing, either as a solo performer or with his band 'The Mary Janes' knew him a huge talent, and those blessed with his friendship knew him a giant among men. His best friend Glen Hansard compared Mic's death in 2001 to that of the high king of a tribe. The tribe was an entire generation of Irish musicians, from the seminal busking scene of Dublin's Grafton Street in the early 80s to the post-U2 scene of the late 80s and 90s where "The Mary Janes could have blown the socks off of Pearl Jam", up until 2001 when before he died, Mic was exalted among the singer songwriter scene at Whelan's, where a young Ed Shearan drew early inspiration.
An epic life-story of extraordinary music, friendship, love, loss and redemption, 'Hey Day: The Mic Christopher Story' as told by Sharon Horgan, Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter, Lisa Hannigan, Mike Scott, Bronagh Gallagher, Ronan O'Snodaigh, Colm Mac Con Iomaire and many more of Mic's friends and family is a feature length film due for festival screening in early 2019.
