Mike Krol

A garage rock revivalist with a snide and sizable sense of humor, Mike Krol is a Los Angeles-based musician who was raised in Madison, Wisconsin. He moved to the West Coast and got a day job as a graphic designer, which included work for bands like Icarus Himself and Sleeping in the Aviary. Michael Sienkowski, drummer for Sleeping in the Aviary, joined Krol's band part-time and appeared on his debut album, I Hate Jazz, which was released on Counter Counter Culture in 2011. The label issued his LP Trust Fund in 2013; then he jumped to Merge for 2015's Turkey. A world tour followed with Krol backed by members of Tickle Torture, Sleeping in the Aviary, and They Live Exclamation Point. In 2017, Merge released Mike Krol Is Never Dead: The First Two Records, a collection that brought together the material from I Hate Jazz and Trust Fund and a handful of demos and outtakes. ~ David Jeffries
