The Mike Flowers Pops

The Mike Flowers Pops (also known as MFP, The Pops or The Mike Flowers Pops Orchestra) are a British easy listening band fronted by Mike Flowers (real name Michael Roberts). Mike Roberts was born in Liverpool in 1960, now married with 2 children & living in London, studied Painting at Chelsea School of Art (1978-81) and did an MA in Music at Goldsmiths (2012-14). In the mid-1990s he enjoyed an unlikely pop profile as easy listening bandleader Mike Flowers of The Mike Flowers Pops, including a UK No. 2 chart hit with his version of the Oasis song ‘Wonderwall’ (according to Lou Reed, one of the funniest things he’d ever heard). He has since scored music for film and television, and made music documentaries for Sky Arts and London’s Barbican Centre. How Art Made Pop is his first book and supported by the "Sounds Superb Singers" and "Super Stereo Brass". Formed in 1993, there can be up to fourteen of them on stage at any time, and they are principally known for easy listening or lounge music covers of both 'classic' and contemporary pop music. The title "MFP" parodies the budget record label Music for Pleasure, also known as MFP, which produced a series of "Hot Hits" cover version albums in the 1960s and 1970s.
