The first issue appeared in 1984. Bullshit Monthly covered the New York City hardcore scene, particularly the bands centered around ABC No Rio. By the 1990's 24 issues had been released and the editor was happy to note that he had not charged more than fifty cents for any of those issues. Later issues included the byline "Proud to be gay owned and operated" and Mike was also happy that, despite the apparent homophobia in the New York hardcore punk scene, he had not sold any less issues than he had before the notice was introduced.
During the 1990's, Mike was also a regular columnist for Maximum Rock 'N' Roll.
Mike was responsible for the creation of the music scene at ABC No Rio, which he instigated in 1989. He was also the lead singer for the New York hardcore punk band GO!, who regularly played there. GO! released a number of EPs and LPs in the late 1980's and early 1990's. GO! reunited in 2006 and have recorded a new EP and are touring again.
