In 1984 the Mick Clarke Band was formed and the first album "Looking For Trouble" was released followed by "Rock Me" and "All These Blues" on the Italian label, Appaloosa. After a successful U.S. West Coast tour Mick recorded ‘West Coast Connection’ in Portland Oregon that featured former members of the Robert Cray Band. Additional albums soon follow on several different labels. He has released four titles on Burnside Records: ‘Steel & Fire’ (featuring Fleetwood Mac producer, Mike Vernon), ‘Tell The Truth,’ ‘No Compromise,’ and ‘Happy Home’, all which placed Mick firmly in the lap of blues enthusiasts everywhere as a premiere British blues guitarist.
