Mikey Wild - Misc.

[Back to Photos]

South Philly native Mikey Wild just loved to perform! We were one of the first to bring him on stage to sing ("Wild Thing," of course), but soon many bands that played on South Street featured a guest appearance by Mike. Later, Mikey recorded and gigged around town with his own band.

The core of the band, Dead Cheese, became The Notekillers (Dave, guitar; Barry, drums; Steve Belinkey, bass). "Cheese Nation" was the name given to the band's community of friends, which numbered around 50 to 100 people. Mitch Schecter, who played drums with Witness and many other groups, also played on and off with Dead Cheese.
