Mike Adams At His Honest Weight shares the video for “The Lucky One” a new track distributed by Joyful Noise Recordings. When talking about the track Mike says, “Our video for “The Lucky One”, is a hardcore tribute to a portion of Zbignew Rybczynski’s 1990 experimental masterwork, “Orkiestra”. My day job is at a community television station, and I happened to catch the “Funeral March” segment of Zbig’s film on our channel as I passed by. It was beautiful and hypnotizing, and I immediately wondered how it was made. So, having the advantage of cheap and powerful technology at our disposal, Zac (Canale) and I set out to dissect the original and make this shoestring-budget tribute version by guessing and stabbing at that “how” question. Meanwhile, twisting it into shape with our own symbolism and metaphor. The themes of the song and the video have to do with luck and superstition, uncontrollable other factors and circumstances.” Look out for more from Mike Adams as 2017 moves along!

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is the flagship recording project of Mike Adams (duh). Musician, writer, TV host, parent, humorist, friend, nimble agitator, these are all adjectives that describe Mike Adams, the man. But, in another realm, he’s a complex mixture of Star-stuff, somehow equally at home whether he’s at home, or performing for a captivated drooling audience.
For the most part, these songs are written and recorded by Mike, alone, in his room before they’re handed off to friend and trusted confidant, Adam Jessup, for further production and polishing-off. I suppose Mike sees the arranging and writing process as an escape fantasy into his own mind where he’s safe and in control. Of course, he’s wrong about that. What he’s really doing is flipping himself inside out; internalizing his experience and exposing his veiled vulnerability in a grotesque public evolutionary process for the whole world to see. Obviously. But, he’s a sensitive guy, so if you don’t tell him, neither will we.
