about

"Sweet Nuggets" is a collection of never-before-released live recordings, songs, and miscellany from a variety of previous albums, recorded between 1997 and 2007. Before I started writing poetry, I formed a number of bands (Goat's Milk, Echo 3, L.I.N.U.S.) with friends Bryan Coy, Kelley Mayne, Ryan Hernandez, Matt Overby and Bryce Dumont.

Through all of our incarnations, Bryce and I have stuck together, re-forming as Monotwin, an experiment in two very different tastes converging on one sound. Bryce now lives with his family in Devon, England, but we have sworn to never break up the "band" and intend to continue creating music together.

In 2003, just prior to embarking on a very long foray into the world of spoken word touring, Shane Koyczan and I formed Tons Of Fun University (T.O.F.U.) as a performance poetry "band." Shortly after our formation, C.R. Avery collaborated with us for a stint on CBC's late-night program "ZeD." We very quickly realized that C.R. belonged in the group permanently. We've released two albums independently and played the vast Canadian festival circuit. C.R. and Bryce have proven to be fantastic artists, consummate musicians and phenomenal producers.

This ensemble of my poetry and music is a good taste of everything I've involved myself with over the last fifteen years of recording. Along with the music and poetry, and some of the very first recordings of certain poems, is a blend of personal messages from friends and family that I've saved since 2008.

I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I've enjoyed performing these poems over the years. Thank you for being here. You are also a very sweet nugget.

Love,
Michael Matthew "Mighty Mike" McGee
