​One Man Band and Classic Rock disciple Mike Weston is Adult Cinema. A craftsman in both music and life.

Mike’s quest to regenerate a maligned genre has taken this artisan from the workshop to the studio. Early success stalled, but the attention of Hollywood and the TV industry and support from a core of determined fans who sought him out one by one, convinced him to down tools and return to the studio.

Likened to the titans of Classic and Prog Rock, the Southend-on-Sea native shunned such comparisons, preferring to reinterpret the genre by incorporating influences from trad jazz, through folk to modern rock and electronica. 

But his songs also carry the mark of a craftsman – for he is that too. Both in music and as a result of his eclectic upbringing and life experience that taught him to craft songs with the same attention to detail as he did when earning a living with his skilled hands.

In short, Adult Cinema is the sound of a master craftsman decoding and rebuilding Classic Rock.

WHAT THE PRESS SAYS

ROLLING STONE “That an album of such intricacy and detail can emanate from the hands of one man is hard to fathom.”

SIMON MORRISON (The Guardian) “Adult Cinema manage to negotiate that precarious edge, nodding a head back to the fine music of the past, and yet also making sounds and songs that are vibrant and contemporary.”

JOE CLAY (The Times) “A winning blend of Meddle-era Pink Floyd, beguiling psych-folk and classic rock riffing. Mike Weston is an accomplished songwriter and musician who deserves a wider audience.”

Dead Men Tell No Tales
I've been messing about in the studio with some covers in the last few weeks and this cover of 'Dead Men Tell No Tales' by Motörhead is the first one I've finished that I'm happy with. Lemmy was a legend so I hope I've done it justice. Check it out and let me know what you think.
