Mike was commissioned by the BBC to write a poem commemorating the life and work of music impresario Tony Wilson. The resulting poem “St Anthony”, featured, was put to music by Salford born classical composer Professor Joe Duddell and has received wide international acclaim. Bernard Sumner of New Order described it as “Fuckin brilliant” and Philip Glass described it as “Magical” and asked Mike to perform the poem with New Order at Carnegie Hall in March 2014 as part of the Tibet House Benefit Concert. Mike continues to work with Philip Glass in Europe and the USA.
