In 1980, Houghton set up his own PR company, Brassneck Publicity, and for the next 20 years the list of his charges reads like a who's who of some of the greatest, most influential, and most dysfunctional cult groups of the post-punk era and beyond. It is his indefatigable belief that it was always the music that came first.

Autorenporträt
Mick Houghton began writing about music during the seventies for such publications as Circus, Zigzag, Let It Rock, Sounds and Time Out before stumbling into a job as a PR at Warner Bros in 1979. Within a year he had set up the independent Brassneck Publicity, where he's looked after an extraordinary array of people ever since. Over the years he's been closely associated with Echo and the Bunnymen, Julian Cope, The Undertones, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Sonic Youth, The KLF, Spiritualized, Bert Jansch, and Richard Thompson. He began writing again in 2001, first for Mojo and later for Uncut. As one of the Grammy-nominated compilers/producers of the boxed set Forever Changing: The Golden Age of Elektra, 1963-1973, he went on to write Becoming Elektra: The True Story of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label, published in 2010. He is also the author of I've Always Kept A Unicorn: The Biography of Sandy Denny (2015).
