Mike Kelley was a founding member of the band ‘Destroy all Monsters’ and was replaced by then ex Stooges guitarist Ron Ashton. He left the Detroit music scene in 1978 and moved to LA to pursue his interest in art. He is now considered to be one of the most influential artists to come out of the US art scene in the 1980s. However, he has continued to parallel his art career with his interest in sound and has collaborated musically with (amongst others) the artists Paul McCarthy and Tony Oursler.
