Michael G Cousins, aka Magic Michael, was in 1976 briefly a singer for Can (kicked out for being "totally unsuitable"). In 1977 he fell in with the Stiff crowd and appeared on the A Bunch Of Stiffs compilation. Nowt was heard for another two years or so, when he released the excellent Millionaire single with three quarters of The Damned in tow. It sounds like an outtake from Machine Gun Etiquette with a less distinctive vocalist than Vanian and is bloody great.
